Just when I was getting used to being off tour, here I am packing for tour again! The U.S. Leg of tour was great, solid hangs with fans and our friends in AuthorityZero and ReelBigFish and generally almost escaping the terrible weather hitting the Northeast. We meet up with old friends Yellowcard in Scotland and start the wild ride through the UK and then over through the EU. Ready?
The REEL BIG FISH / LESS THAN JAKE tour is half way done and it has been a complete blast, not only are RBF a good band but great friends and it is always a pleasure to tour with them. We have ben zigzagging through some wintery weather but thats stating the obvious when talking touring in January. Its been all eyes on gearing up for the UK/EU tour, a few new shirts, some surprises from the stage, and setting up the whol;e infastructure of international touring. I'm not sure if most of you out there reading know but LTJ is completely self managed and all of the moving parts of touring are handled by us!

Less Than Jake announce their across Canada tour ! ****TICKET LINKS UPDATED*****
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.
Make sure to catch Less Than Jake on tour across Canada this fall with special guests Big D And The Kids Table and The Interrupters !

First thing is first, The UK tour was hands down one for the books, every show to capacity and everyone was putting every ounce of energy into the room. There were moiments when I got lost in the show because the energy was radiating off the crowd that much. Thank you to REEL BIG FISH and ZEBRAHEAD for always been a fantastic group of talented individiuals.
We are rolling into Soundwave this week and doing two Sidewaves in Sydney and Melbourne ( Sydney with PENNYWISE, ZEBRAHEAD, + BOWLING FOR SOUP and Melbourne with ZEBRAHEAD, + BOWLING FOR SOUP ) Sydney Sidewave is at the MANNING BAR: Monday FEB 24th and the Melbourne Sidewave is at the HIFI on FEB 26th!.
