Fresh out of the split of the band, “The Format” in 2008, Nate Ruess decided to continue pursuing his career in music. He then formed “Fun” (aka “fun.”) with Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff and together, they set out to do what they love most. In 2009, the indie ban released their debut album, “Aim and Ignite”.

Sure, we didn’t get word of it on this side of the world. Ah, but they hit back with their latest album, “Some Nights” in February 2012. You might know them for their hit single featuring Janelle Monáe:

We Are Young” went straight into the music charts, reaching number one on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs. It also became the first alternative song to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart since Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” in 2008. Let’s not forget how the single peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart.
