Interview: Chris DeMakes (Less Than Jake) discusses solo work, Vinnie’s truck stop bathroom adventures & more

Though most of my free time is spent writing for Dying Scene, I also help my friend Brian out with a Less Than Jake fan site / fan forum he runs.

I got to interview Chris DeMakes for the fan site when the Ska Goes Solo tour stopped in Tampa last night and we talked about everything from his plans to expand his solo catalogue to a fan of the band who recently passed away after being diagnosed with cancer.

Head over to to give the interview a listen and make sure to become a member of the site if you want a place to babble about how much you love Less Than Jake!

Details on when and where the remaining Ska Goes Solo shows will be taking place can be found below, along with info on all of Less Than Jake’s upcoming tour dates. The band’s new album “See The Light” was released on November 12th through Fat Wreck Chords.
