WE ARE SCIENTISTS Launch Limited Edition Beer With Arundel Brewery




Zeitgeist Agency

“To have once been the Malt to their Barley & Hops means my life forever truly pops.” - Andy Burrows

"This beer is slurpalicious! Drown your lobes in it!” - Tim Wheeler, Ash

Iconic New York duo We Are Scientists have finally crafted their very own beer, Lobes Pils, available for a limited time in the UK via the band’s webstore: https://100percent.it/WAS_Beer

Named after, and available as part of a bundle with, their new album ‘Lobes’, the band has developed the new brew in collaboration with the award-winning independent Sussex brewer, Arundel Brewery.

An unfiltered lager in the Czech style, Lobes Pilsner uses Saaz hops for a rich crisp flavour with a biscuity aroma and herbal undertones. At 4%, it pairs well with sunshine and works surprisingly well in the dark too—at a We Are Scientists concert for instance.

The band are already synonymous with memorable nights out, with all those endless final rounds at the bar soundtracked by their 2008 classic ‘After Hours’, and now decide to launch their official beer in the middle of “Dry Jan” - a true statement of dedication to the responsible enjoyment of bubbly beverages.

It’s a hit with famous friends in the indie music industry already, with Ash’s Tim Wheeler reviewing the brew as “slurpalicious” and drummer Andy Burrows of Razorlight fame getting sentimental after a taking a sip down memory lane… “to have once been the Malt to their Barley & Hops means my life forever truly pops.”

Talking about their extensive experience in the field, and what led to the collaboration with the UK brewery, We Are Scientists said, “our line of work has allowed us to purchase, palm, and polish off beer in over 40 countries. It is with the attendant clout that we dub Arundel Brewery one of the top grain fermenters anywhere, and with a deep blush of pride and inebriation that we join them in offering this very special, stupidly swiggable pils.”

Arundel Brewery added, “collaborations allow us to work with some amazing people and working with a band like We Are Scientists is really exciting. This crisp Czech style pilsner is set to be the perfect palate party and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

Inspired by the new album and over 15 years of Chris Cain and Keith Murray carefully sampling beers around the world on tour, the duo’s 8th studio album is an equally crisp affair, and set to delight thousands of We Are Scientists fans when it drops with a can of Pils on 20th January via 100% Records. Ahead of the album release, the new single ‘Turn It Up’ is revealed tonight with the official video premiering on YouTube at 7PM GMT - tune in here: https://youtu.be/s8hPY9W-5ZU

Whilst listening to Lobes, fans can enjoy drinking their favourite new beer out of the band’s already popular ‘Creative Juice’ glassware, also available via the online merch store.

'Lobes' by We Are Scientists is due out 20th January 2023 via 100% Records. Order the album here: https://was.100-percent.co.uk/collections/lobes


Editors Notes:

About We Are Scientists
We Are Scientists is an American rock band started in California in 2000 who’ve carried out their last 20 years of art business from a base in New York City. Founding members Keith Murray (guitar) and Chris Cain (bass) have played with guys like Adam, Michael, Andy, Danny, Chris, Matt, and Gary on drums, but for over five years now have had Keith Carne, who looks like he isn’t going anywhere.

Their first album, “With Love & Squalor,” was certified gold in the U.K. and enjoyed by dance rock fans in many other countries. Subsequent records like “Brain Thrust Mastery,” “TV en Français,” and “Megaplex” saw the incorporation of more synthesizers, strings, and a horn. Although 2021’s “Huffy” returned to a guitar-driven sound, forthcoming “Lobes,” the band’s eighth studio album, is their synthiest, electronic beatiest collection yet. So, really, who even is We Are Scientists?

The release of “Lobes” will be celebrated with a very special hometown show at Brooklyn Made on January 20, 2023, followed by touring in the U.K. and Europe beginning in February.
