Following the release of their sixth studio album Megaplex in 2018, Brooklyn-based power-pop duo We Are Scientists will be supporting Snow Patrol on the road this spring. They also have a new song, "Second Acts," which will be released on Feb. 15 via 100% Records.

When reflecting on the significance of releasing six albums, guitarist/vocalist Keith Murray says, "It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of honing of craft to make it to six records... 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."
