    he does these random little one-off gigs a few times per year... I wish he'd do another album or proper tour again

    Bleachers = Fun
    Format = Steel Train

    Bleachers is actually insane live. If anyone here hasn't given those albums (especially Gone Now) a listen you are missing out. OR just go see them live. The energy between band and crowd is on a different level.

    Yeah my brother saw them back to back nights on the last days of the tour in CO and absolutely loved it. Didn't even plan on going the second time, but went based on the first show he went to, haha.

    I'll take more Bleachers over fun. any day. Nate's solo album was hot garbage.

    Bleachers second album is straight up sophomore slump.

    Give what you can.

    Hopefully to someone local, it costs a fortune to ship an organ.

    This is still the official word:

    "hi guys!

    A lot of you have been asking us for an update on when to expect new music from fun. As you know, we like to give you guys news and updates when they are ready, but there has been a lot of recent chatter and we hear you and wanted to speak to you directly to explain a few here goes-

    first and foremost to answer the question that has been raised most often: fun is not breaking up.

    fun was founded by the 3 of us at a time when we were coming out of our own bands. one thing that has always been so special about fun is that we exist as 3 individuals in music who come together to do something collaborative. we make fun records when we are super inspired to do so. currently nate is working on his first solo album, andrew is scoring films and jack is on tour and working on bleachers music. the 3 of us have always followed inspiration wherever it leads us. sometimes that inspiration leads to fun music, sometimes it leads to musical endeavors outside of fun. we see all of it as part of the ecosystem that makes fun, fun.

    you guys are EVERYTHING to us. honestly. We want to treat YOU GUYS (our amazing fan base) with the respect you deserve; and that is by making music when we are fully ready to make it and never giving you guys anything that is less than 100%. “Some Nights” was a successful album and it would have been very easy for us to jump back in the studio and capitalize on our momentum. but making records and touring when its “good for business” means nothing to us. we make records and tour when we are inspired to do so. that is the very reason why we have built such a special connection with all of you. that is how we can be the most honest to the people who support our music.

    It’s also important for you guys to know that the 3 of us are very involved and supportive of all these different projects going on within the fun family at the moment. that fact that our tiny club can produce so many different kinds of music together and as individuals is very special to us.

    as always, we’ll keep you guys updated!

    all our love

    nate, jack and andrew"

    “... frontman of the band [The Format]...” THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    I could never get into Fun but I'd get pretty emotional if The Format ever did a reunion tour.

    Considering this was their last communication as a band three years ago and that Jack basically avoids any questions about fun, I'd say they're broken up.
