Less Than Jake announce their across Canada tour !
Less Than Jake's bass player Roger Lima says "America's hat is a great place to eat some poutine" and with that sentence you know that LTJ is looking for a good time on the run of headline shows across Canada this October.
Less Than Jake return to the great white north for their first Canadian tour in 4 year in support of their latest release on Fat Wreck Chords See The Light .
While some other bands of a certain vintage are latching onto musical trends, you won’t find any dubstep beats or vocoder distortion onSee The Light—a title that nods to the band’s history of marrying dark lyrical content (the tunnel) to bouncy musical arrangements (the light at the end). Less Than Jake aren’t turning away from their roots, and echoing Mark Twain, Fiorello points out that the rumors regarding their genre’s demise are greatly exaggerated: “Punk has been declared dead every year for 30+ years and it’s still going stronger than ever. People like to declare things dead just because it’s dead to them, but if bands are passionate about what they’re doing, they’ll attract fans who are passionate.”
Do The Math is the title track from See The Light and the a-side of a 7"that was released in June. The b-side is a previously unreleased original titled “Connect the Dots "from their See The Light recording sessions. Read what drummer Vinnie Fiorello had to say about this single below:
“The song is an important one to everyone in the band, it encapsulates being through ups and downs in life- not only remembering who was there for you but also who is still around. The notion that you have to carry this heavy weight around on your shoulders becomes null and void when you realize the people, places, and things that matter the most in your life.”
The new "Do The Math" video is as much fun as the band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntL2IYTiJgo
This tour begins hot off the heels after hitting a giant milestone for the band as this summer Less Than Jake celebrated their 365th Warped Tour date.
