The Come on Get Huffy Tour headlined by We Are Scientists is making a stop at The 7th Street Entry on Wednesday, February 9th and you don’t want to miss it!
Beloved New York-based indie heroes We Are Scientists return with their first album in 3 years, Huffy, released October 8, 2021.
Drawing as much from the angular guitar-driven sounds of their debut as it does from the finest in modern rock today, recent single “Contact High” raises the bar for the decade ahead. Celebrating the song’s potent delivery and unashamed lyrical sentiment, singer and guitarist Keith Murray concludes, “It’s just nice to have a song that’s unapologetically sappy, but couched in distorted guitar and metaphors of coincidental intoxication.”
Huffy follows 2018’s Megaplex and the enormously successful “50th anniversary” reissue of 2006’s With Love And Squalor. The anticipated album is already shaping up to be one of the band’s most hit-tastic albums to date with the inclusion of recently acclaimed bangers “I Cut My Own Hair” and “Fault Lines” alongside “Contact High”.
Huffy’s fresh music is accompanied by an oh-so-fresh presentation: multi-paneled vinyl and CD packaging offer a blank wall on which listeners can unfold their own unreasonable vision for the Huffy universe. Each includes sticker sheets with over 20 full-color graffiti designed by Keith, Chris, & friends, deployable according to the user’s whim. Tilting reality even further into the hallucinatory gyre, this vinyl comes in a choice of ten colors. (The cassettes will be manufactured in a paltry five colors, but while each has Huffy on Side A, five different Side B’s give hard plastic-enthusiasts something to crow about.)
On Huffy’s mosaic form, Chris says, “Usually people bring a vinyl record home, rip it to their iPods, and throw it straight into the fire. Well, not with Huffy. We’re giving our listeners a reason to keep this one around, and even to consider passing it down to future generations, if they’re super-happy with where they put all the stickers.”
