Vinnie from Less Than Jake has once again updated his journal.
Journal Entry PreviewWe started writing a few new songs, mostly I have a stack of potential lyrics about lighting myself on fire, relgion versus work, a few people I know, and the meaning of music to me. A caustic start to a record chris promised (or misquoted) ďyouíd actually likeĒ. For me I loved most of the songs on IN WITH THE OUT CROWD but thought it was over produced and it bled any energy out of it, as Iíve said before. This record, I have a lot thatís been going on in my head lately and Iíd like to communicate it with how Iíve been feeling which is restless but positive, hopeful but lost, and learning from the past...

Mike's Journal EntryHey Everyone,

Happy New Year everyone, i hope it was a good one for all of you. Although we won't start doing full updates until Jan. 16th, i figured i'd check out this journal. It's good to be home and know that we will finally have a long overdue break and be able to concentrate on writing our new album. This past tour was amazing, and it's crazy to see where we've come in the past 4 years or so, so thank you all for coming out. While we were on tour we had our own little recording studio in the back, and were able to sit down and finish up a bunch of songs (about 5 completely done so far) and a bunch more in the works....

Below is Tom Delonge's latest journal entry from MacbethFootwear.com:

Tom Delonge Journal Entryso here is some news for you.....First of all, anybody claiming they heard demos are full of shit. They are hearing old shitty recordings of blink, the music does not sound like blink or box car, so the speculation should end there. Second, the song to be released on December 13 is finished, but the label is too excited to release just a song, so at the last minute it got changed. Let's see, third, it isn't some depressing emo project, it is music that is best described as.....well, the best stuff I have ever done.....too vague?.....well, I promise my fans will like this the most out of...
