Less Than Jake Release Surprise EP “Greetings From…”

June 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Less Than Jake surprised fans yesterday morning with an unannounced release of a new EP of five songs titled Greetings From…  Released on their own label Sleep It Off Records the EP will be sold directly to fans digitally at the band’s website as well as the merch table during 2011 Vans Warped Tour and subsequent tours afterward.

About Greetings From…
A return to form without backtracking, Greetings From… breathlessly amps up the ska and punk in five tracks of the kind of fun party songs that Less Than Jake built their nearing two decade history. From the ‘begging for a call-and-response’ exuberance of “I Can’t Yell Any Louder” to the skank-inducing “Goodbye, Mr. Personality” to the pogo-stomp of “Harvey Wallbanger” to the reggae-sway of “Oldest Trick in the Book” to the breakneck punk stylings of “Life Out Loud”, Less Than Jake pack everything that made them one of the reigning godfathers of the US ska scene.

Catch Less Than Jake out on Warped Tour all summer!
