We Are Scientists have announced a 50th anniversary tour for their debut album, ‘With Love And Squalor’. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long, but it really has. Who would have thought we’d still be talking about this here in 2055?

“A long time ago our management came to us and suggested we do some ‘With Love And Squalor’ shows on the fourteenth anniversary of its release, which we thought was pretty dumb”, says the band’s Keith Murray. “‘Come back to us on a real anniversary’, we told them. Fast-forward to a couple weeks ago, when they told us the big 50 was coming up. I’d say that’s worth celebrating”.

As well as the tour, the band will be re-issuing the album on vinyl, of which bassist Chris Cain explains: “Fans have been asking us to re-issue ‘With Love And Squalor’ on vinyl ever since the last printing, in 2006, ran out. The fact that it took 50 fucking years to make this happen still blows my mind”.

The vinyl will be out on 18 Oct. Here are the tour dates:

4 Dec: Leicester, Academy 2
5 Dec: Glasgow, Oran Mor
6 Dec: Manchester, Ritz
7 Dec: London, Roundhouse
