The Preston Beat remembers The Format
It's been exactly one year since Peoria, Arizona's favorite powerhouse music duo, The Format broke up because of creative differences. I really can't believe it's been a year already...I miss Sam Means and Nate Ruess terribly. Their work together wasn't finished...it seemed like they were really becoming in sync creatively on their sophomore album, Dog Problems, which was an instant classic for me. Apparently, it was the exact opposite!
I look forward to Nate's solo project. As of now, it's pretty much at a stand still. If I hear any news, it will definitely be posted here.
If you haven't already, I encourage you to listen to them! They sound like a more experimental Beach Boys mixed with Jack's Mannequin and The Early November with the lead singer of The Manchester Orchestra.
