Less Than Jake are an American ska-punk band from Gainesville, Florida, currently consisting of Chris Demakes, Roger Manganelli, Vinnie Fiorello, Buddy Schaub, and Peter 'JR' Wasilewski.
Formed in 1992 the band released their debut album, 'Pezcore', in 1995, but it wasn’t until their fifth album, ‘Anthem’ in 2003, which spawned the single, ‘The Science of Selling Yourself Short’, that the band gained commercial wider acclaim. Their latest release was 2013’s ‘See the Light,’ their ninth studio record.
In the last few years the band have headlined tours across the UK, USA and Australia, as well as co-headlining a tour with Yellowcard, and a one off London show with Anti-Flag, as well as having played festivals such as Slam Dunk Festival, NASS, Y Not, Kendal Calling and Rebellion.
