Pasadena-based independent label Pure Noise Records has welcomed Gainesville punk band Less Than Jake to their roster. The band joins the label’s eclectic family, which includes acts like The Story So Far, Senses Fail, Four Year Strong and State Champs among others.
"These days putting out new records for LTJ has become a lesson in record collecting, but the choice of label is always about mutual respect,” says the band. “Watching Pure Noise work hard over the years and maneuver through the modern music industry should be a lesson for any labels that are just starting out. Couple that with how much they understand the history of LTJ, that they have favorite songs by the band, and understand where we are right now in our career, makes Pure Noise a perfect place for LTJ and the new release.”
The news comes in conjunction with the band’s announcement of a co-headline winter U.S. tour with San Diego rock band Pepper, which starts in Dallas, TX on Jan. 20 and wraps in St. Petersburg, FL on Feb. 28 and is sponsored by Hamburg, Germany-based St. Pauli football club. Dates are listed below. Spotify pre-sale are now available, and public on-sale is Friday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m. local time.
Less Than Jake commeting about the upcoming tour, "LTJ and Pepper will be bringing some summer to your winter in 2017 and the fact we get to tour with some good friends always makes for the best energy for a night of live music."
