Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg To Wed This Weekend

Less Than Jake Pay Tribute To Hometown On New CD; Band On Tour Now

July 3rd, 2008 6:00pm EDT
Less Than JakeAlmost as a tribute and celebratory appreciation of their roots, ska-punk all stars Less Than Jake have named their album GNV FLA after their hometown of Gainesville, Florida. Released on June 24 this latest disc marks the debut of their first new material on their new self-owned and controlled indie label Sleep It Off Records.

Recently, the label re-released four of the band's early titles with expanded DVD content – Pezcore; Goodbye, Blue & White; Losers, Kings and Things We Don't Understand and the DVD The People's History of Less Than Jake.

Embarking on a whole new journey as independent artists in control of their own destiny, LTJ have decided to revisit their roots not only in spirit (and album title) but also in their music. A return to form that could be called the "traditional" Less Than Jake sound, complete with their trademark bouncy ska grooves and horns galore.

Less Than Jake will be hitting the road this summer alongside Goldfinger on the "Shout It Loud" Tour, starting off in St. Petersburg, FL and wrapping up at the end of July in Austin, TX. The tour will be followed by three dates with Rancid.
