Less Than Jake plot live vinyl release

Less Than Jake have announced that they’ll release a live album on vinyl later this year.

Live From Astoria was recorded during their three-night run at the London venue in 2001 and will be issued on April 29 via Saint November Records.

Saxophonist Peter ‘JR’ Wasilewski says: “The London Astoria was always a special place for us. For a certain time it almost felt like a homecoming every time we played there.

“For us to be able to play multiple nights there on several occasions needed to be documented somehow. We hope our fans enjoy it as much as we did making it.”

A full tracklist will be made available in due course.

Last week, the band announced four shows in England for May this year. It’s part of a wider trek which also takes in dates across the US and Europe.
