Less Than Jake with Anti Flag

Playing music is about moments. A collection of great moments defines an amazing record. An avalanche of powerful moments tumbles into an engaging live show. The moment when band and fan become one and the same,the moment of interaction, is the type of moment that lasts forever.

Twenty years into its pioneering journey, Gainesville, Fla., natives Less  Than Jake – comprised of lyricist/drummer Vinnie Fiorello, vocalist/guitarist Chris DeMakes, vocalist/bassist Roger Manganelli, saxophonist Peter “JR”Wasilewski, and trombonist Buddy Schaub – have had their fair share of moments. For a band obsessed with interacting with its fans, both online and after shows; for a band that is so concerned with making sure the fangetsthe perfect experience, with well-known hijinks in every live performance; for a band with seemingly unlimited creativity in the form of physical products, from custom-made cereal boxes to unique vinyl packaging;and for a band that is so passionate when writing new music, 20 years begins to seem like an even longer amount of time. A lot of moments add up over two decades – teenagers grow into men over two decades – dare we say, things change?

Ever-adapting to the constant change in an unsure music industry, Less Than Jake is still making cannonball-sized splashes in the deep end while many of its peers timidly eye shallow waters. With the release of Season’s Greetings From Less Than Jake this sentiment is as true as ever. A fivetrack release recorded at The Moathouse in Gainesville and produced by Less Than Jake’s own Roger Lima, Season’s Greetings is a wintertime accompaniment to last summer’s Greetings From Less Than Jake EP.Don’t let the title of the EP fool you, though. The five tracks on Season’s Greetings are barn-burners, more intended to get long-time fans and first-time listeners warmed up and moshing in their living rooms than meant to listen to while cuddling up to a warm fireplace. Keeping its signature mix of punk roots and horn-driven melodies, songs like “A Return To Headphones” and “Finer Points of Forgiveness” take the best of old-school Less Than Jake and put on a fresh coat of point for an ampedup listening experience.
