LESS THAN JAKE – SOUND...

The new EP from ultra fun ska-punk legends, Less Than Jake. “We started writing this set of songs, similar to our last record See The Light, sitting around a table in our warehouse with some acoustic guitars, lyrics scribbled on scraps of paper, and a constant barrage of ideas,” Fiorello explains. “Trying ideas as they would come out, sometimes chasing the idea, or getting connected or not connected to an idea right away. We had been writing and were planning on fleshing out the ideas while on Warped Tour.” Speaking about the new song, lyricist and drummer Vinnie Fiorello says “the only thing constant is change” is one of the lines in the chorus of the song and such a massive truth to me. The sooner you could realize this, digest it, and embrace it the better off you’re going to be. Let it all move forward, at lightning speed. Everything and ...

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT...

Jack Russell's Great White will release their new album, He Saw It Comin’, on January 27th. “For me this is so much more than a collection of songs, it is the culmination of a lifetime of living. It is about addictions , love, pain and many facets of the human condition. I tend to write autobiographically and on this album I dealt with topics I've never explored,” explains Russell of the new record. Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity’s storied origins, Jack Russell set his sights on the future. In December 2011, Jack Russell’s Great White first bared its teeth. Robby Lochner has been with Jack since it's inception, they soon welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana - this time as a guitar player and keyboardist - they then added drummer Dicki Fliszar, then bassist Dan McNay.
