Nearly a year in the works, we can now officially announce that the new Less Than Jake album See the Light, will be released on November 12th! This is the band’s first proper full length in over 5 years. Read what vocalist and guitarist Chris DeMakes had to say:
“What can we say? It’s been 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. You never know what people are going to think when you release new music. 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!!”
Bassist Roger Lima added, “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 guys are in the throes of putting together a massive tour across North America in support of the new album, but in the meantime, catch them in the Southeastern US, Japan and even Brazil! Dates here.
Revolver Magazine is premiering “Stick the Fucking Flag Up Your Goddam Ass, You Sonofabitch”! It’s the remastered version from Propagandhi’s classic first album How to Clean Everything. We released this back in 1993 and are celebrating the 20th anniversary with a new edition on August 20th. The album has been re-mastered from the original analog reels and includes the 3 outtakes that Fat Mike cut from the record and a super rare 4-song demo. We’ve also got a guitar and bass Tab Book made by Chris Hannah for the entire album. All of which can be ordered by heading here!

Check out the flyer below and be on the lookout for an additional guest band announcement!

One year ago today, on July 31, 2012, we lost a true original, Tony Sly. While we continue to mourn Tony our friend, we also celebrate Tony the artist through his songs. On October 29th, we will officially release The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute. We can’t express how much it means to us and Tony’s family that each of the artists and bands on this album took the time and effort to contribute such meaningful and interesting interpretations of Tony’s songs. All proceeds from this compilation will go to the Tony Sly Memorial Fund.
