The Gainesville punks responsible for fashioning a generation’s suburban discontent, social isolation and ‘plastic cup politics’ into irresistibly tasty punk ska hooks are returning to Australia in 2017.
25 years and more than 300 releases since their original formation in small town Florida, the inimitable LESS THAN JAKE return to a loyal local audience to play five headlining dates this October. This most excellent news follows the release of their new EP, Sound The Alarm, in February.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10am this Friday, June 30.
My Live Nation members may secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning at 9am tomorrow, June 29.

The punk rock veterans were last on our shores with their US contemporaries Reel Big Fish and Aus. locals The Bennies in 2015, drawing massive crowds to a quick succession of East Coast dates.
“We never stopped touring or trying to be an active band”, the band suggest of their success that has comfortably spanned two and a half decades. Less Than Jake have been self managed for more than five years and show no signs of easing their break neck touring pace that sees them routinely smash out in excess of 150 dates a year.
