Gainesville, Florida‘s own Less Than Jake will release a new album titled Silver Linings on Dec. 11. It’ll be the ska/punk band’s ninth studio album to date and the follow-up to 2017’s Sound the Alarm EP.

The band shared a music video for “Lie to Me” as a preview of the new record:

By now, Less Than Jake are true veterans of the scene, having outlasted the Vans Warped Tour (which they played many times) and many of their peers in the ska scene — so it’s great to see them forging ahead with new music.

The band would ordinarily be out pounding the pavement hard in support of a new record, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made that an impossibility. Instead, Less Than Jake will host a live stream concert, the band’s first-ever, on release day, Dec. 11, promising all kinds of entertainment for fans:

“We thought just playing to a bunch of cameras could be kind of weird, so we had to do some stuff to make the show more us,” explains bassist and vocalist Roger Lima. “I’m super stoked for this night since it’s also release day! Come join us for a rare and memorable celebration! We’ll be jamming some classics along with songs off of our new album. You can bet that we have a few surprises up our sleeves as well … ”

Less Than Jake is Chris DeMakes (vocals, guitar), Roger Lima (vocals, bass), Buddy Schaub (trombone), Peter “JR” Wasilewski (saxophone), and Matt Yonker (drums).
