  • Less Than Jake lead singer Chris Demakes describes this as a "slow ska summer song." He tells us that they wrote it in anticipation of the 2011 Warped Tour. Said Chris: "We knew we were going to be going on the Warped Tour and we wanted to have a song that when you walk by our stage and we're playing it, it's palatable to anybody. It's like, Oh, yeah, I could listen to this. We're not screaming at you or anything like that." (Here's our full interview with Chris Demakes)
