Less Than Jake has announced Sleep It Off, their own record label where they will re-release their back catalog and new album. You can read a message from the band below.
“When you are in a pop punk band in your 16th year, sometimes you don’t fit in the modern music industry,” drummer Vinnie Fiorello says. “You need to be a shiny new penny. We didn’t feel like the rest of our years as a band should fit in that narrow parameter.”
The first new release on Sleep It Off will be Less Than Jake’s ninth studio album to date, which the band will start recording in March.
“To be honest, I don’t really know what to expect,” Fiorello says. “All I do know is that we’re writing songs now and they seem to have the spirit of a tempo in mind, all very speedy but once we hit the record button they may be slower.” He admits that personally he’s looking to combine third wave ska and pop punk in each song, but that he’ll be “as surprised as everyone” when the album is complete.
