Glasgow’s We Are The Physics will be en Tours this week. Specifically the band will play at the Festival Aucard de Tours in France. Vic Galloway sidesteps the opportunity for more weak French puns but has more on ‘The Physics’ below as well as his weekly listing of every Scottish band playing abroad this week:

We Are The Physics at Festival Aucard De Tours

by Vic Galloway

A band who’ve been a bit quiet recently, certainly on Scottish shores, are now reunited and reignited!

With a new LP in the pipeline (it may well be finished for all I know and a fresh copy is winging it’s way to me), Glasgow’s answer to ‘Devo crossed with the Toy Dolls’, the skinny-trousered, x-ray-spectacled ‘sci-fi, mutant punk rockers’ We Are The Physics are about to rip France a new orifice!

Always entertaining, and with more energy than a small child pumped up on Sunny D and PCP, expect a loose-limbed, guitar-thrashing live experience that very few can rival. Now, there’s a recommendation if ever there was one… Go and see them, for the love of God!

Also on tour this week: Alex Smoke, Average White Band, Paolo Nutini, Mungo’s Hi Fi, The Twilight Sad, Hudson Mohawke, Camera Obscura, Biffy Clyro, Kassidy, Sparrow and the Workshop and Simple Minds.
