At Least I’m Not As Sad

fun.

Nate is back!  The man responsible for penning the inspiration behind this very blog’s title has finally resurfaced with a new song after a few months of downtime.  Although still very upset that my favorite band of the past decade is no more and being somewhat underwhelmed with the first “Benson Hedges” demo, I’m becoming much more excited for Fun’s debut, Aim and Ignite, after reading what Nate had to say about the album in his recent update to the fans:

Yeah, I know… “it’s about time”… but really… it took forever to make this record… and I honestly couldn’t be more proud of the job that Andrew, Jack, and I did… this is most certainly the best record I’ve ever been a part of. 

Granted, any band is going to say their latest work is the best thing they have ever done, but after hearing the first completed single, I’m more optimistic on a solid release.  The ironically titled “At Least I’m Not As Sad (As I Used To Be)” picks up where Dog Problems left off:

I still have a really hard time wrapping my head around the idea of Nate’s thoughts no longer “bouncing off Sam’s guitar”, but I’m looking forward to experiencing Fun firsthand when they kick off the new tour supporting Manchester Orchestra at Nashville’s Exit/In on April 21st.  The tour is hitting several spots across the country, so I suggest you get tickets and do the same.

The highlight of Nate’s update is that he wants to give away “At Least I’m Not As Sad” as a free download in hopes that everyone will know the lyrics by the time the band hits your town.  All you have to do is sign up for their new nifty mailing list.  Don’t be lame…just do it.  Although I’m still mourning the loss of The Format, the new single aptly makes me a little less sad.*

*DISCLAIMER: I fully acknowledge the corniness of the obvious play on words above, but felt like it had to be done regardless.
