Our New Record SEE THE LIGHT Is Out Now!
Our new record SEE THE LIGHT came out last week on 11-12-13 and let me tell you that if you haven’t listened to it, You should get your earholes into it right now.
"The five of us wrote it in our rehearsal space without any outside influences,". "We recorded it at Roger's home studio and at the end of tracking it, we all felt we made something special. Time will tell, of course, but we feel this is the strongest collection of songs we have released in some time. Also, we are extremely excited to be back on Fat Wreck Chords and to have them backing us for this album. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Noisey says this about our new song " My Money Is On The Longshot":
"....Let’s take a minute to give it up for Less Than Jake. Not only has the Florida band stuck it out for 20 years, which in ska years is a lifetime, but they’ve also endured numerous label changes, which would normally kill most bands. The band’s albums have had temporary homes with everyone from Capitol Records to the tiny, now-defunct Dill Records. And on top of it all, the band has maintained their status as the only ska band people aren’t embarrassed to admit to liking.
But now, Less Than Jake are back on Fat Wreck to release See The Light, their first album in five years. Not sure if there’s anything nerdier than splitting hairs with ska albums, but if we hypothetically were, you could probably argue that the album is the closest thing to band’s old-school sound that we’ve heard in a while. It definitely brings to mind elements from the band’s debut album, Pezcore. But again, that’s only if we were being ska nerds...which we’re definitely not.
LTJ will soon be headlining the Fat Tour with Anti-Flag, Get Dead, and those rapscallions in Masked Intruder.See The Light is out next month from Fat Wreck Chords. Make your high school self proud and give their new song a listen..."

We hate to announce this but the upcoming tour to South AMerica has been cancelled by the promoter, This is out of our hands and fall to the promoter doing the shows. We deeply regret letting down the people that support LTJ. The message below is from the promoter:
WROS Fest Brazil postponed!
We regret to inform that WROS Fest is being postponed for December this year, due to unexpected circumstances, such as logistic and bureaucratic issues.
We’ve tried till last minute to keep the festival on the dates of 12-13 October. But today we’ve taken a decision to postpone the festival to avoid problems to band’s fans, mainly those who were making travel plans to be in Sao Paulo on next weekend for the festival.
WROS Fest 2013 will happen on 21-22 December 2013, at same venue Espaco das Americas in Sao Paulo. And tickets already purchased for the festival will remain valid for the new dates of December. In the next few days we will be confirming details of all bands confirmed for the new dates of WROS Fest, and more details.
Those who would like to request reimbursements for tickets purchased, please get in touch with us via email@example.com.
In order to compensate festival's fans for more 2 months of waiting, those who keep their tickets for December will receive a voucher that will give 10% discount when purchasing tickets for WROS Fest 2014.
With the postponment of WROS Fest, the Warm Up shows of Curitiba and Rio de Janeiro, scheduled for this Thursday 10 October, are also postponed for December. And in the next few days we will inform about confirmed bands and details.
See the Light, will be released on November 12th! Our first proper full length in over 5 years.
Chris say's -
“What can we say? It’s been one hell of a ride. 21 years in and we still enjoy the process of creating and recording new music. It keeps us sane and happy. Life has a way of bringing things full circle and we are beyond stoked to be releasing our new record as part of the Fat Wreck Chords family. Our new album See The Light is pure Less Than Jake. 13 songs that were written, recorded and produced in our hometown of Gainesville, Florida. You never know what people are going to think when you release new music. All you can do is what comes from your heart and we feel like we have accomplished what we set out to do with these new songs. Hopefully our fans will feel the same passion for this album as we do. See ya on the road!!”
Roger adds, “If you’re expecting retreads and repeats, this record will disappoint. It’s all new songs and new vibes, only recorded in our old school way.” The guys are in the throes of putting together a massive tour across North America in support of the new album, but in the meantime, catch them in the Southeastern US, Japan and even Brazil!

The concerts were originally recorded for release in a live DVD box set called Anthology, and this is the first time the band has made them available in a downloadable format. The box set was limited and sold quickly.
Individual concert videos can be downloaded for $5 a piece, or the entire six-video set can be purchased for $25. When purchased as a set, additional video content is also delivered that spans Less Than Jake's entire career.
All of this is available the Less Than Jake webstore
Hey Hey, Check out the "Shows" section to see the new dates we added, lots of cities added and a lot more to be added in the coming months.
Alot can be said about us starting to record a new record but I'll just let this video start things off!
Everyday we get tweets, facebook messages, and email asking about coming to there city/country, I can tell you that we are planning out alot of the year and we will be visiting alot of cities and planty of countries but we are slowly announcing. We have a few surprises up our sleeve as well. Check out the tour dates section or sign up for the newsletter and you can get news first about tours.
Here we are, 2013 came in with a literal bang with us doing our first New Years Eve show ever and ending two decades of being a band. Last year we celebrated all year long, I mean 20 years of being a band is something to celebrate and I'm betting most of us wish we hadn't celebrated so hard. It's that time of the year to check in with everyone, Start some new projects, and end some of the ones we started. I was thinking about getting a lot of lest years live photos together from various photographers and maybe doing a small photo book or maybe doing a picture a day for a year for LTJ. So many good things to do and start. If you want to chime in on anything you can always reach out via email firstname.lastname@example.org or twitter or Facebook. I respond to every email sent.
Thank for 2012 now let's start 2013!
and now a word from Buddy!
Well, I can't believe it; another year has come and gone when I, yet again, feel like it just started, but here we are diving headlong into the year 2013!! The President is just getting sworn in as I write this and somehow we already have so much on the horizon. We're playing the Florida State Fair in Tampa on Valentine's Day, going on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas put on by the band "311" to kick off the month of March, and making our way in a van to play South by Southwest in Austin, TX with some shows on the way there and on the way back. Then we're going to fly over to Europe in April for a nice 10 day jaunt to play a few festivals including Groezrock in Belgium and round it out with some club shows while we're over there. But let's not put the cart before the horse. We've already begun writing some songs for what is to be a new record sometime this year. We're in the baby stages of writing so far, but I'm already excited about the 10 songs we have started, lots o' catchy melodies and guitar riffs, and some great lyrical starts. And JR and I are about to go work on some horn parts right after I finish this coffee. So, as you can see, the plan for this year is as always: busy busy busy!! Let the games begin!!!!
