Wow, as if one Less Than Jake release isn’t enough for one month, we’ve got another! Over the last year, Less Than Jake sold a couple new EP’s on tour. Unfortunately, with the reach of the new EP’s limited to those who could attend a show, and with some of their strongest material in years, it seemed like a proper album was in order. So the band assembled the two EP’s, added 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks, and re-sequenced everything into one cohesive record, Greetings and Salutations. Pre-order for all formats starts NOW! Orders will ship as soon as we get our stock in early December, but the digital will deliver to you on October 16th!
Kicking off the Fat Tour 2012 at the Triple Rock in Minneapolis, Lagwagon, Dead To Me, The Flatliners and Useless ID will be playing 20 shows across the eastern United States and Canada, wrapping up at Fest 11 in Florida.

Preorder all of our upcoming releases now! Swingin’ Utters The Librarians are Hiding Something 7", Old Man Markley Blood on My Hands 7”, and The Flatliners Destroy To Create LP are all available to preorder now!
When the Swingin’ Utters released Here, Under Protest last April after an 8 year wait, we were stoked. Then, they started touring again and we dreamed, oh but a little, that they would keep going. Lo and behold, they just finished recording another new full length record, due out early next year! While that isn’t quite ready, a brand new two song 7” is! The Librarians Are Hiding Something will be out on November 6th, and what’s particularly cool about this single is that the A-side is a nice precursor to what can be expected from the full length. It’s the first appearance of new bassist Miles Peck on an Utters record AND marks Jack Dalrymple’s debut as a songwriter for the band, as he and vocalist Johnny Bonnel co-wrote Librarians. We really should be calling this a Double A-side record, as the flipside, Rude Little Rooms, is a classic Darius Koski composition, but only available on this single, while a new mix of The Librarians Are Hiding Something will show up on the upcoming full length. Additionally, this is a limited edition pressing. Stay focused folks, the operative word is “limited edition”. We are not pressing a lot of these. Keep your eyes peeled for our pre-order, we’ll be announcing it soon.
Read what Johnny had to say below:
I’ll simply say it is one of the happiest times in my years with Swingin’ Utters. Being able to create music with these dudes is pretty exciting and I’m looking forward to writing more!
Trailblazers Old Man Markley can’t be accused of resting on their laurels. With their epic touring schedule, a single & album released last year, the building of a home recording studio, and a newly recorded album under their belts, it’s been jam packed. The party (shack) continues on November 6th when we’ll be releasing a new two song 7” called Blood on My Hands in anticipation of their upcoming full length, due out early next year. Old Man Markley vocalist and guitar player Johnny Carey had this to say:
“Blood on My Hands” was the last song written for our upcoming record and turned out being one of our favorites. With Paddy’s approval, we recorded D4’s “folk song.” for the b-side, making it our third punk cover.
This 7” is a limited edition special one-time pressing. Pre-order is coming soon. Watch this video of Old Man Markley in the studio. Hungry for more? Well, Old Man Markley are true road warriors and just added new tour dates! Check them out here.
