Less Than Jake To Perform, Hello Rockview, In Full During Oct Tour with The Bennies & Young Offenders

Ska-rockin’ maestros Less Than Jake are returning to Australia this October and November, marking the groups first visit in 7 long years.

In their own words, the band consider Australia “One of our favourite places in the world. It is paradise with koala bears and flat whites.”

Released in 1998, Hello Rockview is considered one of the seminal albums of its era. NME listed it as one of “20 Pop Punk Albums Which Will Make You Nostalgic” Featuring the huge tracks ‘All My Best Friends Are Metalheads’ which is closing in on 60 million spins and ‘History Of A Boring Town’ the album is the soundtrack to many a late Gen X or young Millennial youth,

One of the most enduring live acts on the scene today with over three decades of existence under their belts, Less Than Jake’s deeds are best measured in the smiles they’ve slapped on the faces of true believers and new listeners, alike.

Their brass led grooves, insanely catchy choruses and joyous vibes get everyone moving while their often reflective and deeper lyrics get everyone thinking.

Joining Less than Jake on all shows are The Bennies and Young Offenders:

The Bennies have described themselves as  “psychedelic reggae ska doom metal punk rock from Hell” but if thats not enough for you, their reputation for putting on blistering, high-energy live shows and anthems like Party Machine, Heavy Disco and latest single, Let’s Have A Party should give you an indication of what’s instore for you when they take the stage.

Hailing from Adelaide, Young Offenders have shared the stage with the likes of the Dead Kennedys, The Dropkick Murphy’s, The Exploited and The Bronx, plus stints in the UK where they have played Glastonbury not once but twice, their dues are well and truly paid! Wearing their social and political concerns on their sleeves, they aim to expose the absurdity of the modern lifestyle many of us blindly follow.

Armed with Hello Rockview and classics including The Science of Selling Yourself Short and Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Sellouts, Less Than Jake are set to bust out hit after hit.

No matter if you’re an old school fan who has been there since ’93 or are just now discovering that Less Than Jake are one of the greats of their generation, get to a show near you and experience ‘Hello Rockview Down Under‘ in the flesh!

Never resting on their laurels, Less Than Jake just released a new single “Broken Words” (June 20) which delivers the ska, the pop-punk and the horn lines that feel like a Less Than Jake party!
