Joining Jack's Mannequin on tour expected to be Fun

fun's new album, Aim and Release has now been out for a few months, and the band is thriving thanx to good opening slots with bands like Taking Back Sunday, Manchester Orchestra and up next . . . Jack's Manequin (dates below)

fun also has a new video up for "All the Pretty Girls."

Not much to say on this one. I found myself struggling to pay attention. The poppiness of the song and the lack of drama or good live perf footage left me desiring much, much more out of this video. I can easily see the song fitting some party scene as a soundtrack piece in 90210 or Melrose or Greek or some other TV drama in the very near future though.
