Less Than Jake will be entering the studio in March to record their ninth album, due for release in summer 2008.

"We're holed up in Fort Hooker, our warehouse, finishing up songs and dodging the homeless that hang around the parking lot,” says founding member/drummer Vinnie Fiorello. "With the new record, we've been more focused on heavy horns and a lot of melody. I personally look forward to some time in the studio. I miss that cabin fever feeling."

In the meantime they’re re-releasing some of their classic material, complete with all the usual bonus bits that go with such things.

On March 17 the band will reissue ‘Losers, Kings And Things We Don't Understand’, ‘Pezcore’ and ‘Goodbye Blue And White’, as well as a DVD of ‘Peoples History of Less Than Jake’. All albums come with an extra DVD and brand new artwork.

Their new album will come via the band’s own label, Sleep It Off.

"It's an amazing concept that a band can actually participate in 360 degrees of its career," explains Vinnie. "After a decade an a half of being in the band, we are now our own bosses for real and the excitement of that can peel paint off the walls."
