We Are Scientists have announced they have returned to the studio to record the follow-up LP to 2010's 'Barbara'.

In a typically humorous blog post, after much waffling about penis enlargement pills and Canadian dogs, the trio declared they were reconvening to begin working on their sixth studio album.

The statement read:

Aren't we a band, for chrissakes, not some fly-by-night internet mini-mall? The answer of course is yes, by god, we are a band, and so making more/better music has become, in the hours since our last tweet and hopefully for many months to come, our absolute focus.


"Yes, we've once again drilled down hard into the music-making process, and once again found it to our liking," they added in-between more jokes about "dicks" and "dogs".

They continued: "Once again, the songs are too hot to touch, which has us daily thanking Crom (our god) that they are not physical objects that ever need to be handled, really, just songs. We've started thinking about artwork, and an album title, and whether to use little blood splats or little bullet holes in place of all the o's in the song titles, and which large corporations to thank in the acknowledgements – nearly all of them have played a significant role! In other words, for those of you who've been literally holding your breath for the next record, there is a chance you'll survive."

It is currently unclear when the trio will release their sixth album, but former Razorlight sticksman Andy Burrows, who is the band's drummer, is readying the release of his solo album 'Company', out October 22.
