Less Than Jake Return to the Road

New Album Out 2006

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- Punk/pop heroes LESS THAN JAKE return to the West coast this September to road test new material and play old favorites. They will be recording this year with famed producer Howard Benson, who produced Less Than Jake's third album "Hello Rockview" as well as albums for My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects, Hoobastank, and P.O.D. The album will be set for release next year.

The band has released two albums since 2003, their debut on Sire Records, "Anthem" and a collection of previously unreleased tracks and European B-sides, as the title states, "B is for B-Sides," which contains songs that were not available domestically until now.

In other Less Than Jake news, drummer and entrepreneur Vinnie has redesigned Monkey vs. with brand-new toys such as Monkey Assassin Baker, Monkey Assassin Dictator, and of course, Space Monkey, all who join the original cast of Monkey Assassin, Science Guy and Robot Gorilla.

Band mates, Chris (vocals, guitar), Roger (vocals, bass) J.R. (horn section), Buddy (horn section), and Vinnie (drummer) first joined forces in 1992 in Gainesville, FL, and have never stopped touring since. Their live shows are incendiary events that continue to amass their hard-core global fan base. "Less than Jake'll be damned if this pop-punk wave passes them by." -- Rolling Stone.
