While the Record Store Day EP is a nice gift, don’t count on fun. hitting the touring circuit anytime soon. The band have been busy taking a break from their three-year tour in support of their break out album, Some Nights. According to a recent interview with Rolling Stones after performing at the NCAA March Madness Festival, frontman Nate Ruess revealed that he is currently writing for what might become their next album and even admitted that when the band got back together for the NCAA show, it made him happy.
As for the other members of fun., it was recently revealed that Jack Antonoff has formed another musical group named Bleachers after he tried to keep it a secret. Bleachers would be his second “side project” band, his first being Steel Train.
