We Are Scientists line-up strangest support act ever

US trio bring Brain Trust Mastery to university tour

We Are Scientists have confirmed one of the strangest support bands for their forthcoming university tour – themselves.

Along with playing shows, the band are also aiming to “change their fans’ lives” by staging a a self-improvement seminar before the gigs.

Speaking about their Brain Thrust Mastery seminars, frontman Keith Murray explained the band’s plans.

“Everyone grows up with an idea of where they’d like to end up one day. For some it’s as vague as ‘I want a bunch of kids’ – others have it planned out to the brand and shade of the car they want in their garage,” he said. “Ninety-nine percent of the time, that idea fades away under the harsh light of life’s frustrations and disappointments. We created Brain Trust Mastery as a way to help people not only colour in that original plan, but to add exciting embellishments that, as a small child, they might never have imagined for themselves.”

Bandmate Chris Cain added: “With leveraging concepts such as ’Mind Sound’, ’Time Vision Performance’ and ’Goal Memory Belief Awareness’, We Are Scientists will show students the path towards taking instantaneous control of their physical, academic, sexual, medical, psychological, historical, emotional, intellectual, financial, theoretical, and automotive destiny.”

The events will take place in the day ahead of selected dates, and to give you a clue of what to expect the band sent NME.COM this
