LESS THAN JAKE
MILLIE MANDERS & THE SHUT-UP
Tue 29th Mar 2022
Whelan’s Main Venue
Live Free Tourbooking are very happy to announce the very welcomed return of the legendary Floridan ska-punk maestros Less Than Jake to Ireland for two shows in March 2022! Following the band’s two sold out shows in 2019, the band come back to celebrate their 30th anniversary together. The band are set to be joined by upcoming English rockers Millie Manders and The Shut Up as special guests on both dates, and Live Free DJs spinning everything you want to hear (except Nickelback).
In 2020, the band released their latest studio effort via Fat Wreck Chords, ‘Silver Linings’. For the band, Silver Linings also doubles as a bunch of sonic diary pages and a mission statement that cements their conviction after two decades in this rock ‘n’ roll circus. Indeed, LTJ—frontman/guitarist Chris DeMakes, bassist/vocalist Roger Lima, trombonist Buddy Schaub, saxophonist Peter “JR” Wasilewski and new drummer Matt Yonker—have escaped most (but not all) forms of ennui, depression and violence against screen-based objects to create an endorsement of humanity. Wasilewski continues: “We’re not looking for silver linings,” he clarifies. “The record is about appreciating them. Nobody appreciates them until maybe it’s too late or maybe it’s after the fact.”
Known for top level skanks and bangers such as ‘All My Best Friends are Metalheads’, ‘Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Sellouts’, ‘The Science of Selling Yourself Short’ and most recently ‘Lie to Me’ – The story of Less Than Jake isn’t told in their sizable discography or road miles travelled (but somewhere in the region of two Van Allen belts.) Less Than Jake’s cumulative worth is all about what they bring to your party. From sweaty club shows to uproarious festival dates to opening up for America’s most beloved rock acts, these five lifers’ deeds are best measured in the smiles they’ve slapped on the faces of true believers and new listeners, alike.
