Australian punks The Scientists announce first-ever U.S. tour
Seminal Australian punks The Scientists — whose sound was an influence on both ’80s NYC punk and ’90s grunge — recently reunited their mid-’80s lineup of Kim Salmon, Tony Thewlis, Boris Sujdovic, and Leanne Cowie. The regrouped band are releasing two 7″ singles via In the Red and they have just announced their first-ever U.S. tour which kicks off September 28 in Portland, OR and hits NYC for two shows at Brooklyn’s Union Pool on October 9 & 10. UPDATE: They’ve added a Jersey City show at WFMU Monty Hall on 10/12 with Bill Nace. Tickets for all three of those shows are on sale now. Tickets for the Brooklyn shows will be on sale soon.
All U.S. tour dates are listed, along with a stream of one of those new 7″ singles and a few Scientists classics, below.
