When one of the modern legends of the ska punk genre announce they'll be releasing a new album in just a few weeks time, a lot of people tend to sit up and take notice. Well everyone should sit up and take notice of the fact that Less Than Jake are going to be doing just that. Fresh from appearing at Leeds and Reading 2012, Less Than Jakes's new album "Greetings & Salutations" will be released on October 15th through the uniquely titled Rude Records.
Greetings & Salutations is a treat for longtime fans of Less than Jake, with the album being comprised of tracks from two very rare E.Ps "Seasons Greetings" and "Greetings From Less Than Jake" as well as two brand new never released before tracks. LTJ's brand new single, entitled "Goodbye Mr Personality" is already available from iTunes and you can watch the video for it below:
