American ska/punk/whatever band Less Than Jake has announced a new EP titled Sound The Alarm, which is set to be released on February 3 via their new label, Pure Noise Records.
Lyricist and drummer, Vinnie Fiorello, had this to say about it:
“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.”
And, after many years of releasing albums through a variety of major and independent labels, the band have settled on a Southern Californian based label called Pure Noise Records.
“When I met Jake at the San Francisco stop of Warped Tour, we talked about working together,” Fiorello adds. “He is a longtime fan, knows the history and the arch of LTJ and that’s important to know where we have to go. It’s always great to have a mutual respect between band and label and that is exactly what we have between LTJ and Pure Noise.”
