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.
