“In the past we’ve used our music to educate, to enlighten, to awaken people to the depth and complexity of moral concerns. This time, we really wanted to drop a fun-bomb. Something to dance or f*** to,” states one half of the duo CHRIS CAIN, and Megaplex achieves just that. Recorded at Tim Wheeler from Ash’s Atomic Heart Studios in NYC and once again produced by Max Hart (ex- Katy Perry), the band set about honing down a sprawling burst of creativity to make the concise pop beast that is Megaplex.  

“It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of honing of craft to make it to six records,” explains singer KEITH MURRAY. “ I mean, the Velvet Underground never made six albums. The Smiths didn’t. Pavement, Guns N’ Roses, The Stooges — none of them could do it. So, I guess we’re just objectively better than those bands now? It’s just a mathematical fact, right? Van Halen made six with David Lee Roth but only four with Sammy Hagar, so I guess we’re better than Hagar-era Van Halen but only just as good as Roth-era? Which, saying it out loud, makes total sense, yeah.”  

These are stark facts that cannot be argued when faced with the ten melodious molten nuggets of Megaplex that are simply blinding in their brightness. Yes folks, We Are Scientists are very much back.
