Less Than Jake’s ‘See The Light’

Less Than Jake’s ‘See The Light’

Less Than Jake have announce details behind their new record See The Light, the band’s first proper full length studio album in over 5 years set to drop on November 12th via Fat Wreck Chrods.

After nearly a year in the works, LTJ has made the official announcement, releasing the record’s cover art and list of 13 brand new tracks, as well as 27 dates in support of the release.

After the success of the bands past two decades of musical creation, fans should not expect a general re-hash. As bassist Roger Lima explained, “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.”

Vocalist and guitarist Chris DeMakes describes the recording as “…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.

This announcement comes as LTJ gears up to hit the road this month. After listing several dates already both in the US and abroad, the guys have just filled in the rest of their fall schedule, putting together a massive tour across North America in support of the new album. The Fat Tour 2013 features Less Than Jake, Anti-Flag, Masked Intruder and Get Dead all touring together under the Fat banner this November.

When a band releases new material, introducing it into a live set can be difficult. “You never know what people are going to think when you release new music.” admits DeMakes. “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!!”
