So the name of the band is Fun. The lead singer is formerly the lead singer of The Format, one of my old favorites. Fun opened the Jack's Mannequin show i went to see in November, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Nate had come out with something new- The Format had sort of been unheard from for a while. It was nice to hear Nate's voice again! It's really unique.
Slowly, Fun has been leaking some songs and keeping fans up to date on facebook, twitter, and through e-mails and their myspace page. Their song "At Least I'm Not As Sad (As I Used to Be) was intentionally leaked a long time ago, but now their whole cd is finally out and available on iTunes!
Go here in order to stream their album- it's a lot of fun and kind of silly, but also very insightful. Right up my alley.
