Brooklyn-based indie rock trio, We Are Scientists formed in 2000 around the talents of guitarist/lead vocalist Keith Murray, bass player Chris Cain, and drummer Michael Tapper. After building a small but devoted following through their epic live shows and a series of three self-released EPs, the group signed with Virgin Records. They constantly plan secret and often free concerts for their loyal fans. Their major-label debut, "With Love and Squalor", was released in early 2006. In the band's new album, "Brain Thrust Mastery", all the tracks are inspired by girlfriends and ex-girlfriends. We Are Scientists have also appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman.
