- Road To Ruin
- Broken Glass
- Young Love
- Everybody’s Damaged
- The Haze
- Taste Danger
- Could have been Anyone
- The Deep End
- Forever New
We were going to film heaps of stuff and be all efficient, but it’s just been too busy, sorry. Here is a mini collection of random things we managed to put on facebook as we were working.
We’ve been demo-ing hard for the new album. It’s going well, the songs are piling up. We thought we’d be playing them at gigs by now but they kinda change every other day so it’s hard.
We’re almost at the end of our long run of small shows, man that’s been fun..! We have a couple left, see below, then nothing till October. It would be great to see you at one of these.. come and have a beer with us before we bury ourselves in studio-land (seemingly) forever!
Break on through to the other side, dudes. x WAWT x
So we’re pretty busy. We’re writing tons of songs, demoing them and getting them really bang on. We’re also playing a lot, which feels good, and keeps it a little bit real. things can get kinda weird if you don’t play gigs for too long.
Some excellent stuff coming up anyway, check it out:

Bandito Folk @ Black Bear Lodge
We’re playing the same night at The Black Bear with Bandito Folk..
On the back of some rather warm reception to their performances during the past few weeks with Dan Sultan and The Gin Club BANDITO FOLK grab the cashbox and run through the flames to stir up some more musical trouble. Up next for the bandits is another headline at Blackbear Lodge mid-April and their first trek to Toowoomba in early May… along with the release of a new video for third track on the The Embankment EP – INTO THE FIRE.
The Brisbane show will be complemented by special guests WE ALL WANT TO along with OLD PINES.
Sunday April 13th / 8.00 pm
Black Bear Lodge – Brunswick St Mall, Fortitude Valley.
WE ARE SCIENTISTS
Indie rock roars from speakers and stereos worldwide incorporating thoughtful, thunderously epic elements but most importantly, infectious fizzes of sonic intimacy which make you want to stand up from your seat and dance like crazy. There is no mistaking the origin of this eargasmic delight. New York-based legends We Are Scientists are set to head to Australia for a series of shows which are guaranteed to put a smile on every punters face and shake the roof off venues across the country. This is a band guaranteed to blast out “indie dancefloor hits so supersonic that Richard Branson is trying to sell passenger tickets into space on them.” (NME)
Thursday 29th May
The Zoo – Ann St, Fortitude Valley.
