We Are Scientists Announce 'TV en Français' LP, Book Spring Tour with Canadian Dates
Last fall, New York indie rock outfit We Are Scientists returned with their Business Casual EP. Now, some of those tunes have reemerged on the band's new full-length, TV en Français. It's due out on March 4, with the Canadian release handled by Dine Alone Records.

This is the group's fourth full-length. It was produced in New York by indie studio guru Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear, Beach House) and includes the previously issued EP cuts "Dumb Luck" and "Return the Favor," while "Courage" appears in its completed form following the prior demo.

In a statement, singer-guitarist Keith Murray explained of the album, "We wanted to get at the seemingly inevitable parallax that happens between two people in a relationship, that sense that you get the gist of what the other person needs and wants and how they feel about you, but only the gist — you're relying on these broad cues a lot of the time to tell you what the hell's going on."

That's the album cover above and the tracklist below. "Return the Favor" and "Dumb Luck" are embedded at the bottom of this page, along with the newly shared video for the latter.
