NYC indie vets We Are Scientists will release a new album, Huffy, on October 8 via Masterswan Records. It's their first record in three years, and the new single is the anthemic "You've Lost Your Shit." As usual for the band, the song comes with a funny, memorable video, this time involving an organ black market, with frontman Keith Murray waking up in a bathtub full of ice and a suture in his abdomen.

"We shot the video for 'You’ve Lost Your Shit' at the Hotel Dylan, an idyllic spot on the outskirts of Woodstock that offered a truly welcome reprieve from the NYC summer," says Murray. "It’s an absurdly charming spot and, despite our best attempts at set-dressing, not at all the sort of place where one would ever expect to lose an organ. Is the organ theft in the video an allegorical rebuke of the music industry? Is it a metaphor for the artistic struggle in a long-standing collaboration? Is it a fairly random bit of word-play on the song title? Is it just an excuse for us to go hang out and drink hotel-room cocktails in pastoral Woodstock for a couple of days? You be the judge!"

The video premieres in this post and you can watch it below.

We Are Scientists will be on tour in Europe and the UK this fall, but before that they'll play Brooklyn's Elsewhere Rooftop on September 20 with S.C.A.B., and tickets are on sale. All dates are listed below.
