'The Bushmills Tour' is part of the #AnswerTheCall campaign that aims to showcase creators, artists, entrepreneurs from the music industry and beyond to showcase their talents and inspire others to fulfil their true calling.
The Old Bushmills Distillery has been making whiskey, and history for over 400 years, and is one of the first distilleries in the world to make both single malt and blended Irish whiskey. It's this innovation and willingness to be different that has inspired 'The Bushmills Tour', which provides the opportunity for breakthrough acts to play alongside headline bands, offering a stage platform for a new generation of talent.
'The Bushmills Tour' will be fronted by established bands returning to their local independent roots in some of the UK's most iconic music venues. With the Music
reporting an estimated 40% of music venues closing in the past 10 years, Bushmills aims to celebrate these iconic venues that remain the lifeblood of the UK music scene.

isn't the only form of creativity that We Are Scientists
have used to #AnswerTheCall as the boys are also known for writing a short play script for their website and often bring theatrics and grandeur to their live music performances.
We Are Scientists

This will give up and coming artists and talent the chance to make a name for themselves on a stage that has been played by some of the biggest names in the business.
25th May - Leeds // Headrow House, The Wytches
Renowned for recording their nihilistic debut album in just two days, The Wytches mix their prolific sound with carnal fuzz and an energy that's fearfully focused in every live performance. The Wytches formed while studying at university where they realised that music was the force that they felt driven to pursue above and beyond their academic studies.
