fun. ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM, AIM AND IGNITE SET FOR AN AUGUST 25TH RELEASE ON NETTWERK RECORDS ON TOUR WITH MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA

fun.Nettwerk Music Group is proud to announce the release of AIM AND IGNITE, the
highly anticipated debut from fun., out August 25th. AIM AND IGNITE was produced by Redd Kross’ Steven McDonald and is a stunning array of diverse inspirations from three extraordinary musicians-former front man of The Format Nate Ruess, ex-Anathallo multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost and Steel Train’s Jack Antonoff. When combined, they create an irresistible album that rethinks classic 70s pop, where ornate arrangements and inspired orchestrations meet present-day rock ‘n’ roll. The band recently joined Manchester Orchestra for a 34-date North American tour in April and has been hypnotizing sold out crowds night after night in major cities such as New York, Boston, Nashville, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Chicago.

From the album-opening “Be Calm” which melds finely wrought chamber-pop orchestrations with guitar-fueled rock ‘n’ roll, to the richly intricate melodic twists and turns on “All The Pretty Girls,” from the brash and brassy blue-eyed soul of “Barlights” (which was arranged by longtime fave Roger Joseph Manning Jr. of Jellyfish) to the Randy Newman-esque “Light A Roman Candle With Me,” AIM AND IGNITE is an irresistible collection of freewheeling pop songcraft full of passion, imagination and creative vigor.

fun. recently debuted their song, “At Least I’m Not As Sad (As I Used To Be),” on their MySpace page, and it was met with immediate excitement, receiving close to 500,000 plays and a tremendous amount of action on message boards. The song is now available at digital stores.
