fun. - Nate Ruess (The Format), Andrew Dost (Anathallo) and Jack Antonoff (Steel Train) - have barely taken a break from the road since the release of Aim And Ignite in August 09. The band played to sold-out crowds across the country on their first headlining tour before joining Taking Back Sunday in October. Prior to the album's release, fun. spent the summer touring with Manchester Orchestra.
Now, in the midst of more headline shows, fun. announce their first set of tour dates in 2010, joining Jack's Mannequin on a 12-city tour across the country (with more dates being added!).
Aim And Ignite debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #71 in its first week and has gone on to sell over 16,000 copies. Buzzbands.la founder and former LA Times music critic Kevin Bronson described the trio as a "complex hybrid of jaunty pop, glam and white soul," while USA Today called fun. "a band that lives up to its name, in a very Electric Orchestra sort of way."
Don't miss fun. in your city!
