Less Than Jake
WebsiteLess Than Jake
Less Than Jake’s breakthrough album, 1996’s Losing Streak, was well received by fans of speedy, hyperactive ska-punk, thanks in large part to non-stop grassroots touring. The band has stayed atop the pack since, not venturing too far outside its poppy formula but penning catchy songs nonetheless. In 2006, In With The Out Crowd found the band continuing to jog on the same musical treadmill, but still pulling in the fans. Dissatisfied with its major-label backer’s demands for a radio-friendly sound, Less Than Jake severed ties with Warner Bros. the following year to return to its self-made roots. Its last few releases, including 2008’s GNV FLA and several EPs, were released on the band’s own label, Sleep It Off.
