Less then jake & zebrahead to tour uk november
 
You'd think that almost two full years of near-nonstop touring they would deserve a long break,
but that is not the case for our favourite ska/punk/pop pioneers LESS THAN JAKE who are continuing their trek across the Atlantic and into the UK with punk-rap legends Zebrahead. “We were used to being in the UK and Europe three times a year like clockwork but we took some time away for some new projects,” says LTJ drummer Vinnie Fiorello. “Now we are coming back and can't wait to be back doing a full tour.”

This tour with Zebrahead is special as the bands have been friends for over a decade. “We've known the Zebrahead guys since 1997” says Vinnie “and being able to share a tour with them again makes the journey full circle”.

The affinity between bands is reciprocal, as Zebrahead’s bassist Ben Osmundson adds, “Zebrahead is beyond stoked to be bringing the Peace, Love and Beer back to the UK with our favorite band the almighty Less Than Jake!”.

We Are the Union will also be joining the trek along with some new UK talent who have been hand picked by the band themselves to support. Vinnie says “ Some of my favourite young UK bands are joining us on the tour – we are really excited to have them on board”

Tickets for the UK dates are available at ArtistTicket.com. Fans who choose to purchase their tickets in this manner will receive a special bonus: six live tracks from Less Than Jake’s upcoming new DVD anthology release, including “A Still Life Franchise” (from In with the Out Crowd), “All My Best Friends Are Metal Heads” (Hello, Rockview), “Dopeman” (Losing Streak), “Liquor Store” (Pezcore), “Look What Happened” (Borders and Bounderies) and “Plastic Cup Politics” (Anthem).

Hotly celebrated as a return to form, Less Than Jake's seventh album GNV FLA has received plaudits from the media and fans alike, generating praise from newspapers such as Buffalo News who remarked,

"Less Than Jake have only gotten better and better at creating a sound all their own"

and Denver Post who gushed,

"Less Than Jake are just, well, awesome."

AMP Magazine said, "[GNV FLA] is damn sure a great album," while AbsolutePunk proclaims, "Less Than Jake aren't going anywhere except in steady rotation in your iPod, and GNV FLA proves that unequivocally."
