When you’re as frenetic and consistently on-the-go as Less Than Jake, you need to release that energy somehow. On June 21, 2011, these punk/pop/ska rockers are unleashing a whole lot of energy by way of a four DVD digipack called Anthology on the band’s own label, Sleep It Off Records. With over eight hours of music spanning six records, Anthology is a collection of live performances of each of the band’s albums in sequence: Pezcore (1995), Losing Streak (1996), Hello Rockview (1998), Borders & Boundaries (2000), Anthem (2003) and In With the Out Crowd (2006).
Recorded in Less Than Jake’s home state of Florida, the band played two nights each in St. Petersburg, Orlando and Jacksonville during the winter of 2007, capturing each of the shows in three different venues. A bonus DVD is included, jam-packed with footage spanning the band’s touring career with clips dating as far back as the mid 90’s up to present day. Each concert DVD was recorded with high definition cameras and multi-tracked audio, and edited by band members Buddy Schaub and mixed by Roger Lima at The Moat House.
Having headlining slots on Tavares, FL’s Rock Steady Fest on May 7th and the full Vans Warped Tour this Summer, Less Than Jake aren’t planning on slowing down anytime soon.
