Less Than Jake posts live shows for purchase online

Less Than Jake Less than Jake have posted 5 live shoes online availble to purchase via digital download. on their myspace page available for digital download. The songs are DRM free and encoded at a bitrate of 320kbps in MP3 format at a price of $10.00 per show. From a recent blog post :

I think one of the best things about Less Than Jake is our live show. It has an energy that I don’t think we could ever duplicate recording in a studio. Here’s a collection of shows from our personal collections. These shows aren’t remixed or touched up like most “live” recordings. This is raw off the board recordings, these are time capsules of the past captured in the moment. These are songs played with passion and conviction across the globe or in your backyard, to a few hundred people or to forty plus thousand. Sometimes drunk, profane and sloppy with missed chords and forgotten words and sometimes perfectly played, every beat and note aligned together with great inspirational moments in between 3 chords. This is Less Than Jake, in every way possible

You can purchase the shows at the band’s MySpace page.

Thursday to release retrospective DVD/CD via Victory

Thursday Thursday has announced that they’ll be releasing a retrospective DVD/CD through their former label Victory Records. The band explains:

A lot of the footage from this DVD was taken during the time we spent on Victory and we thought it was appropriate to release it with them. On a more personal note, many of you know that our parting with Victory was bitter on both sides and we’re taking this chance to put that behind us. That label really helped us get to where we are and we helped them to establish themselves as well… “coming full circle” and “making amends” are some of the phrases that we could throw around here but we think you get the picture already. Tony’s passion for this project and his continued support of the band after all these years has helped to make this an easy decision.

The DVD will feature live footage from the past nine years, while the CD will feature several new tracks and alternate and demo versions of older songs.

After the completion of the DVD/CD, the band will begin work on their follow-up to last year’s A City by the Light Divided.
