Less Than Jake, currently riding high with their radio hit “The Science Of Selling Yourself Short,” took time out during the So Cal swing of the Warped Tour to play the grand opening of the Apple Store in Santa Monica, CA on July 11th. With a line of fans circling around the block waiting to get in, the band launched into a first- time-ever acoustic set for their devoted followers. Four songs from that performance, “Suburban Myth,” “The Ghosts of You and Me,” “History of a Boring Town” and “Welcome to the New South” will be available exclusively on Apple iTunes Music Store as a digital EP called “Less Than Jake – Live From The Apple Store.” The EP will sell for $3.95. (the tracks are also available individually for $.99). This exclusive Less Than Jake / Apple promotion starts August 19, 2003. Less Than Jake fans should not delay! Log on and show your support of legal and unique digital downloads!
As an added bonus, the in-store performance was videotaped digitally and will be made available through a unique partnership with QuickTime. Less Than Jake fans will also be able to view band performing at the event through this digital streaming promotion. The QuickTime video launches the same day as the iTunes Music Store promotion and it’s free!
