On February 3rd, everyone’s favourite Ska-punk band, Less than Jake, will release a new killer EP “Sound the Alarm”.
Kicking things off is the infectious punkness of “Call to arms” before switching to a more ska song with “Whatever the weather”. Then there is “Bomb Drop”, which is one of the more energetic songs on the EP, with the double vocals and mix of ska and punk, this is definitely a song to get the crowd going. “Welcome to my life” calms things down a bit with its more chilled out feel before kicking back into another upbeat energetic song “Good Sign”. The EP finishes off with the ska infused “Years of living dangerously” and fast paced “Things change”.
After being around for as long as Less than Jake have, you really have nothing to prove. While this is nothing new and is typical Less than Jake. They stay true to their roots. The way they alternate from punk to ska to a combination throughout the EP, you know no two songs are going to be the same. That is not to mention how incredible the music itself is. This EP is one stellar EP. As per usual you will be singing these songs for weeks after listening to them.
Catch Less than Jake at Slam Dunk festival this year on the Fireball Stage.
