Barbara, the new album from We Are Scientists, is now available to American folks, and a busy summer tour now follows.

The band’s travels will begin in Europe with a series of festival appearances, the first being at the Germany based Southside Festival on June 18th. They’ll then makes stops at  Glastonbury, Oxegen, and a bunch of other festivals and venues across the UK and Europe before heading home in mid-July.

We Are Scientist’s latest is receiving more attention in Europe than in North America, which may explain why the outfit is branding the North American tour the “The American Barbarian Tour”. Following the Oxegen appearance, the group will land in Boston on July 13th and hit all the major East Coast markets before aiming Midwest. They’ll then cross quickly through Portland and Seattle on their way to their early August dates in Australia. California will get some love after Australia, and then the band finishes off the world tour with some more European fests — including Reading & Leeds — in late August.

The endeavor will feature new drummer Andy Burrows, formerly of Razorlight, whose first appearance with the band is on Barbara. Also, The Whigs and Chew Lips will tag along for a string of U.K. shows (the “Four-on-the-Floor Tour”) next week.
