In 2008, the band known as The Format split followed by Nate Ruess asking Jack Antonoff and Andrew Dost to collaborate with him on a new venture. Previously Dost had toured with The Format, providing various instrumentation. Ruess and Antonoff were introduced after The Format toured with Steel Train. The trio began work on their new project in New Jersey with Ruess singing the melodies and the other two supporting him with the music. Benson Hedges was the first demo song they recorded which was offered for free in a September 2008 Spin article covering the band. Their first single, At Least I'm Not as Sad As I Used to Be, was offered as a free download through the band's MySpace page in 2009. Since that first single, Fun has cultivated much success with their infectious music and fun lyrics. To learn more about how you can see Fun live in concert, check out StubHub!
