The classiest punk rock cover band and group of Bar Mitzvah ruiners on the planet has gone South. No, they haven't gone country (they did that back in 2006), they've taken a musical journey to Australia.
Florida ska-punkers LESS THAN JAKE have a long history of bringing some light-hearted humor into their music, and that same attitude takes center stage on their latest release, the TV EP. Crafted in terms of "Channels" as opposed to songs, the TV EP is meant to give listeners the experience of flipping channels on television, jumping from show-to-show, complete with commercial breaks in-between with the difference being that all of these are theme songs and jingles as covered by LTJ. Though undoubtedly throwing a nod to the 80's/early 90's, newer fare is here as well, all delivered as if you were still checking out your favorite shows on an analog set adorned with rabbit ears on top.
Recorded over the course of five days last month, ATREYU have assembled COVERS OF THE DAMNED, a brief, 5-track collection of cover songs featuring collaborations with members of the bands with whom they will join on the CONGREGATION OF THE DAMNED Tour later this month.
