Ska legends reveal details of ninth studio album...
Gainesville ska veterans Less Than Jake have announced that their next full-length will be titled 'See The Light'. Their ninth record will be released November 12 on Fat Wreck Chords.
The announcement of the first new material in five years is bound to be tantalising prospect for any fan. Recorded by bassist Roger Lima at The Moathouse in the band's home town, he promises the 13-track record will be a return to good form:
"Do you like punchy vocals, blaring horns, big guitars, bass and drums? Well, that's just what we do! 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 track listing is as follows:
1. Good Enough
2. My Money Is On the Long Shot
4. The Loudest Songs
5. Do the Math
6. Bless the Cracks
7. John the Baptist Bones
8. American Idle
9. The Troubles
10. Give Me Something To Believe In, Inc.
12. A Short History Lesson
13. Weekends All Year Long
