LESS THAN JAKE re-release "Losing Streak" and "Hello Rockview"! On tour too!

When they decided to start up their own label Sleep It Off Records three years ago to take back control of not only their future but also their legacy, punk/pop/ska band LESS THAN JAKE not only provided their fans with new music (full-length GNV FLA and EP TV/EP) but with re-releases of their classic catalog as well (Goodbye Blue And White, Pezcore, Losers, Kings And Things We Don't Understand, Peoples History Of Less Than Jake). Continuing down their path, they will be re-releasing their classic albums Losing Streak (1996) and Hello Rockview (1998) on March 1, 2011. "I'm crazy excited to add these to my already ridiculous collection of LTJ stuff," says Schwenker, Program Director/Afternoon Show on Friends Or Enemies Radio. "Every new ska album I hear gets compared to these two albums, and Less Than Jake wins almost every time. They started my obsession with ska and, actually, my radio career. I seriously love LTJ."

The physical release of both albums will include the original album along with a bonus DVD of live video recorded at various shows in their native Florida (the digital release will consist of the recorded audio from these shows only). All new artwork for the expanded packaging has been created by longtime LTJ artist Horsebites (

In support of the re-releases, Less Than Jake will be kicking off in mid-January and circling around the U.S. in preparation for some big plans in 2011. Support for these dates will be Supervillains and Off With Their Heads. Always plotting new ways to keep their music and live shows exciting, the band is looking forward to keeping things interesting. "We have a few tricks planned," says drummer Vinnie Fiorello, "but we like keeping the element of surprise to the show instead of hype."
