Just when you thought you’d have to wait until February 3rd to hear Less Than Jake’s brand new EP Sound The Alarm, the ska-punk OGs have decided to share the seven-track release in full one week ahead of schedule.
That’s right! While we’re unsure whether the Gainsville outfit choose to stream the EP early in celebration of their co-headlining tour with Pepper kicking off today or they just felt like listeners needed a bit of a pick-me-up, we’re incredibly happy either way.
In regards to the new release, drummer Vincent Fiorello shared a little insight saying:
“Right when you get your footing, and you get a foothold, that’s when your life flips upside down. That’s the world we live in sometimes, where calm turns into chaos and we have to push forward to gain some clarity. These seven songs could be the soundtrack to that passing moment, from calm to chaos back to clarity. We continue to push forward as a band, and mix everything we learned along the way into these tracks. You learn from history or are doomed to repeat the mistakes is what someone said and that is a truth on everything we do in this world. Sound The Alarm has [LTJ bassist] Roger Lima at the helm again as was Jason Livermore from Blasting Room mixing and this release feels like a good continuing arc from our last full length See The Light. We keep refining what the modern LTJ is.”
