Silver Linings is the name of the new Less Than Jake album, their first full-length for the Pure Noise label and the follow-up to 2013’s See The Light. Check out “Dear Me” from the album here.
“I wrote this song as a tribute to a few special people in my life who are no longer around,” says Peter “JR” Wasilewski. “What it is like to reach the impasse of where words can’t convey emotions. This is my internal struggle to understand their internal struggle.”
“We hope that the record transports you,” Wasilewski says. “We’ve always hoped our music takes listeners from the troubles of the world. Nowadays, that very act seems to be more important. Once you turn your phone and your TV off and venture outside with a mask, and actually talk to someone else, you realize that the world is not the worst place ever. We hope the takeaway from this album is that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s not that hard—it’s just easier to be downtrodden.”
