Less Than Jake frontman Chris DeMakes and San Antonio’s Steve and the Neurotics will be releasing a split 7″ next January 17th. All proceeds from the split will be donated to the Tidewell Hospice Center of Port Charlotte, Florida, and The Cancer Research Institute of New York.
DeMakes will contribute one song to the 7″, an emotional tribute to his late grandmother, who was cared for by the people at Tidewell Hospice for six months before passing in 2015. Steve’s side will feature two songs he wrote after his own mother’s passing from cancer.
Pre-orders for the split titled We Miss You will be available here starting in mid-December. If you would like to donate to the Tidewell Hospice Center or the Cancer Research Institute right now, you can do so here and here, respectively.
You can listen to Chris DeMakes’ song “I’ll Be Your Eyes” below.

“These days putting out new records for LTJ has become a lesson in record collecting, but the choice of label is always about mutual respect. Watching Pure Noise work hard over the years and maneuver through the modern music industry should be a lesson for any labels that are just starting out. Couple that with how much they understand the history of LTJ, that they have favorite songs by the band, and understand where we are right now in our career, makes Pure Noise a perfect place for LTJ and the new release.”
The UK stretch is only eight shows, and then it’s on to the rest of Europe with Big D and the Kids Table

Back in March, Less Than Jake embarked on a short tour playing their classic albums Losing Streak and Hello Rockview in their entirety every night. If that tour didn’t stop in your city, we may have some good news for you. The Gainesville ska-punk veterans just announced a few more full-album shows for these records!
The newly announced shows will take place in Boston, Virginia Beach, and Long Island. The first two stops will see the band playing both albums front-to-back over the course of 2 nights. Long Island will be limited to one show, at which they will play Losing Streak.
More info and links to grab tickets can be found below.
Less Than Jake’s latest album See The Light was released in 2013 on Fat Wreck Chords.

It’s worth mentioning that if you’re reading this (hi dad!), understand that this is the second story that I wrote up that tried to capture all that is the 2016 edition of the Vans Warped Tour. It’s also worth mentioning that this version is much, much shorter than the original. You’re welcome. Seriously.
You see, if you’re of a certain age bracket (like, I don’t know, mid-30s) the continued existence of the traveling punk rock summer camp that is the Vans Warped Tour has obviously been a hot button topic in certain corners (read as: message boards and comment sections) of the punk community at large. We all can reminisce about years gone by, or compare which pre-2000 lineup was best, or patronizingly congratulate ourselves for even recognizing the names of any of the bands on the roster in the last handful of years.
The 2016 lineup is, as you’re probably aware, the best in recent memory, thanks in no small part to the fact that it draws from a handful of the bands that made it all that some of us remember being “back in the day.” And so I initially had a whole article (I hate, HATE, to use the word “thinkpiece”) written extolling the virtues of Kevin Lyman and company for helping the pendulum swing back toward something resembling Warped Tour normalcy. But then I was reminded of a quote from a wise old man that I always picture to be George Carlin but apparently, according to the internet, was actually “Author Unknown” and thus may not have actually been wise or old or male at all, “if something goes without saying, let it.” As such, I deleted the first story, and this is what you get as a result.
So anyway, the Vans Warped Tour rolled into Hartford on a thankfully warm but not blisteringly hot Sunday in July and…you know what…you really don’t care about all that stuff, do you? It’s the Warped Tour; you know this year’s lineup, you know how the individual set times get shuffled on a daily basis, you know there’s going to be a handful of bands you want to see, and handful of bands you want to avoid, and a whole bunch of people you’ve never heard of before and will most likely never hear again. For yours truly, the “who I have to see” list was dictated by a mix of nostalgia and recent fandom. From column A? New Found Glory, Less Than Jake and Sum 41. Column B, meanwhile, was represented by The Interrupters, Teenage Bottlerocket, and Masked Intruder. I could have (and, as it turns actually have) lived without seeing anybody else (sorry Motionless In White…), and as fate would have it, the schedule broke perfectly. NFG and LTJ played the same stage an hour apart. TBR and The Interrupters played neighboring stages back-to-back. Sum 41 played a set that wasn’t really in conflict with anybody, and Masked Intruder closed out one of the amphitheater stages. Perfect timing, really.
Say what you will, and there is certainly plenty you could say, about the Warped Tour (and, more specifically, about how you wish last year’s Lyman-produced It’s Not Dead Fest would become a nationally touring entity), but the crowd response at the Hartford stop and, we’re led to believe at a lot of other stops, indicates that it’s not just a select few old guys that miss the days of the skate punk and ska-core Warped lineups of yesteryear, and that there’s room for even more of the old guard at the table in the years to come.
Now if you’ll excuse us, get off our lawn. And check out our photo gallery of the six bands mentioned above down below.
