Less Than Jake to Support NOFX

Less Than Jake to Support NOFX at
O2 Academy Newcastle and O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire*
Tuesday 1st May; Punk rock icons, NOFX are pleased to announce that ska punk heroes, Less Than Jake, will be joining them for two of their UK live shows this June.
Supporting them on their dates at O2 Academy Newcastle (Jun 13) and their second London show, and final night of the tour, at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (Jun 17), fans can expect a double-dose of pure punk madness when these two phenomenal live acts join forces.
Vinnie from Less Than Jake commented, "We are stoked to be playing with the most popular spoken word comedy act in the world! No, really NOFX are one of those bands that we love as people and love as a band. We finally get to play a few club shows with them. Pretty great start to the summer right? YES."
Formed in L.A. back in 1983, NOFX has released some 10 studio full lengths, 6 EPs, and a metric ton of 7”s, selling over 6 million records worldwide. Their onstage banter and wild antics are the stuff of legend – a punk rock band with DIY ethics.
It’s been a wild and crazy ride for Gainesville’s Less Than Jake who in 2012, hit the 20 year mark and celebrate the band’s anniversary with these support slots and their own headline tour later in June.  
Other acts appearing on the bill are; Margate (all dates), UK Subs (Bournemouth), Snuff (Newcastle, Leeds, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire – 17 June), Abrasive Wheels (Leeds) and Varukers (O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire – 16 June)
