Tours: Less Than Jake Announce West Coast Tour Dates

Less Than Jake announced today a set of new tour dates that will take the pioneering ska-punk band around the western United States and Canada. This latest batch of dates is the most recently announced leg of an ongoing, year-long tour in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary. So far in 2012, the group has played shows in the northeast and east coast, in South America, the UK and Europe, and they have announced a midwest U.S. leg for September.

The October west coast tour is just over two weeks long and will feature direct support from Mad Caddies on four dates and Reel Big Fish on the last eight dates. Flatfoot 56 will open the entire 14-show run. The west coast dates are sandwiched between the band’s midwest tour, which features stops at three different Riot Fest dates (Toronto, Chicago, Dallas) and a highly anticipated seven shows in the U.K. on the “Road To Warped” tour with New Found Glory, The Story So Far and Man Overboard.

Keeping the ball rolling, Less Than Jake will release a new album titled Greetings and Salutations in October. The album will be comprised of the two previously released EPsGreetings From Less Than Jake and Season’s Greetings From Less Than Jake, along with two brand-new, unheard songs. The group will be testing out some new material this weekend when it plays the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K., and more information about Greetings and Salutations will be available soon.

Less Than Jake recently put on a special art show during its Orlando show at the Beacham Theater on August 11. The art show featured 20 different custom Less Than Jake screenprinted posters celebrating the band’s illustrious career. These posters will be available for purchase again during the band’s back-to-back shows in its hometown of Gainesville, Fla., at the High Dive. The Gainesville performances will be broadcast via Stageit.com, where fans can exercise a pay-what-you-want option to watch the two shows. Each of the performances will feature an entirely different setlist spanning the band’s career.
