T HE fun is far from over for local band Nine Sons of Dan (pictured) who are about to hit the road to celebrate the release of their new single, Fun (La da da da da).
Taken from the quintet’s second EP, The New Kids, released mid-last year, the song is about letting go and having some fun.
Nine Sons of Dan drummer Morgan Blake says the band set out to create a track that gives a different insight into the music industry.
‘‘We wanted to tie in something about having fun with the opportunities we have,’’ he says.
‘‘People tend to look at us in two ways. They are either critical or happy we are playing. Of course we want to test ourselves but at the same time acknowledge how silly it all is. The music industry is super competitive and we wanted to make a song that would poke a stick at it.’’
The pop-punk outfit is currently penning new material for a third EP to be released mid-year.
Blake says Nine Sons of Dan will road test songs for the first time when they play the Gold Coast this weekend.
‘‘Touring is the best opportunity to test out new stuff,’’ he says.
‘‘We love playing on the Gold Coast. Our last Jupiters show was insanely good.
‘‘This time we will be giving some snippets of brand new material. We are interested to see how people will react.’’
Nine Sons of Dan, The Iron Eye and We Were Giants play The PA Bar, at Jupiters Hotel & Casino, tomorrow night.
