Less Than Jake To Play Six Album Club Shows

US ska/punk/pop band Less Than Jake are to perform a series of shows at London's Mean Fiddler in September.

The infectious group will play a six-night residency, playing through a different album from their back catalogue each night, alongside b-sides and rarities.

Albums set to be played through are "Pezcore," "Losing Streak," "Hello Rockview," "Borders & Boundaries, "Anthem" and "In With The Out Crowd."

LTJ recently rehearsed 109 songs from their fifteen year career for a smilar residency event in their hometown of Florida.

The UK shows will run from September 11 to 16, with the order in which the albums will be performed yet to be determined. These will be the group's only intimate UK shows this year.

Founder member and drummer Vinnie says: "We feel that the UK is our second home and want to something special for our friends and fans there. Some of the best shows we have played were in the UK, some great memories to go with those shows. The six shows are the best and biggest thank you we could think of to give."

Tickets for individual shows are £14 from usual ticket outlets, however, a season ticket will be available via postal application from Straight Music, priced £76.50.
