In other Steel Train news, Nate Ruess, Jack Antonoff and Andrew Dost are proud to announce a new band called Fun. Ruess, the former frontman and songwriter of the much beloved band The Format, has been quietly assembling songs for Fun, following the dissolution of his former band. Fun will be comprised of Dost, formerly with Michigan’s Anathallo, and Antonoff, who is currently performing double duty with his band, Steel Train. Beginning September 1, the trio will enter a Los Angeles studio with producer Steven McDonald (Red Kross) and arranger Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish), to start work on their debut slated for an early 2009 release on Nettwerk Records. McDonald and Manning Jr. both worked on The Format’s 2006 breakthrough Dog Problems. The band’s first single will be released digitally this November, followed by a full North American tour with Jack’s Mannequin beginning November 8.

The first track, “Benson Hedges,” can be currently heard on Fun’s MySpace Page.
