LESS THAN JAKE premiere new single “Dear Me”

2 mins read

Ska punk veterans LESS THAN JAKE have teamed up with New Noise Magazine to bring fans another new single from their forthcoming album, “Silver Linings”. “Dear Me” is available for streaming now. “Silver Linings” is set to be released on December 11th via Pure Noise Records and is available for pre-order at this location.

On the new single, the band shares: “I wrote this song as a tribute to a few special people in my life who are no longer around. What it is like to reach the impasse of where words can’t convey emotions. This is my internal struggle to understand their internal struggle”.

Nearly 30 years into an already impressive career – which includes 8 studio albums, tours with Descendents, blink-182, Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, Snoop Dogg, Bad Religion, and more, and over 365 shows on the Vans Warped Tour – Less Than Jake has never been a band to rest on its laurels. They have no plans of slowing down any time soon as they prepare for the release of their 9th studio album “Silver Linings” out December 11th via Pure Noise Records.

Less Than Jake

The story of ska-rockin’ maestros Less Than Jake isn’t told in their sizable discography. It can’t be calculated by the amount of road miles they’ve logged. (But if we’re forced to calculate, we think they might be a block or two short of the Van Allen belts.) Nah! Less Than Jake’s cumulative worth is all about what they bring to your party. From sweaty club shows to uproarious festival dates to opening up for America’s most beloved rock acts, these five lifers’ deeds are best measured in the smiles they’ve slapped on the faces of true believers and new listeners, alike.

“Dear Me” lyrics

Dear me, I confess. Most days I’m a mess
I still act like I’m with it but I’m all out of one more shots to give
They don’t know about me or what’s inside my head
But in the end, it’s me alone
Staring at my phone

How did it get so bad?
And does it sound crazy that I’d ask?
I really wanna know when it took its toll

Dear me, I’m not content.
All these years and my nerves are spent
And I’ve tried to be patient but why does it seem like I’ll never make it?
Maybe I resent all the time in life I spent
Staring at this phone, feeling so alone

How did it get so bad?
And does it sound crazy that I’d ask
I really wanna know when it took its toll
How did it get so bad?
I know it sounds crazy that I’d ask
I really hope you know what’s good for your soul

Maybe we’ll go on to be “good for now”
It’s better than being nowhere at all

Dear me, I’ll be fine. It’s hard to leave what
