“Tegan and Sara have been one of my favorite bands for a very long time,” he said, according to jambands.com. “I remember when I discovered them – we were in L.A. recording [fun.’s first album] Aim and Ignite and at that point everything I was listening to had been made before 1980. I was having a real “everything modern sucks” kind of chip on my shoulder moment. Discovering [Tegan and Sara’s] The Con not only changed my life the way a brilliant album does, it also renewed my faith in modern music…
“Beyond my personal experience, their new album Heartthrob is absolutely incredible and the three of us are so thrilled to hear it live every night this summer!!!!”
