We Are Scientists are back with a new single.

Following the lockdown-inspired I Cut My Own Hair, the electric guitar-driven Fault Lines reflects on polarised views in an increasingly divided society. Singer and guitarist Keith Murray said:

"Look, I’m generally reluctant to get into song meanings and lyrical analysis, under the best of circumstances. With a song like Fault Lines, I'm even less inclined to dive into that sort of thing than usual. If someone wants to read about (or, hell, see direct evidence of) partisan divides, subjective realities, intractable convictions, and perpetually-recalibrated contextual frameworks, they can just check their social feeds at any given moment. At least Fault Lines pairs those ideas with sick guitar riffs, extravagant falsetto vocals, and a bonkers, flange-soaked drum fill. That’s why music is better than social media..."

Stream the alt-pop track below and check back for the premiere of its accompanying video on November 24 at 8pm GMT.

There's still no news on the follow-up to their last album, 2018's 'Megaplex'.
