The frenetic Glasgow group are going back on the road to support second album Your Friend, The Atom, which is released on October 22.
The band will headline The Old Blue Last later this month as part of DIY's 10th Birthday celebrations, before taking on four dates around the UK in October. The shows are:
- 22 September – London The Old Blue Last – DIY's 10th Birthday Party (free entry)
- 18 October – Kingston McClusky's – New Slang
- 19 October – Aberdare – Elliot's Bar
- 20 October – Brighton – Prince Albert
- 21 October – Manchester – Carefully Planned Festival
Your Friend, The Atom is the follow-up to the Glasgow sci-fi new wave punks' 2008 debut, We Are The Physics Are OK At Music.
The record features previous singles Goran Ivanisevic and “frantic shoutfest” Applied Robotics (watch the video for that above).
We Are The Physics formed in Glasgow in 2005, taking influences from bands such as Devo, Ex Models, Cardiacs, The Skids, Servotron, Brainiac and Buddy Holly.
Known for their eccentric and frenetic stage shows, they have performed on tours alongside the likes of Franz Ferdinand and 30 Seconds To Mars, as well as appearing on the NME/Radio 1 Stage at T In The Park.
They will be appearing in next year’s God Help The Girl, the feature film written and directed by Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch.
