Ska-punk act Less Than Jake are preparing for a quick club trek, followed by runs in Japan and South America, all ahead of the late November release of "See the Light."

The veteran Florida outfit set out next week for a five-city club run that begins Aug. 20 in Norfolk, VA. Gigs throughout Japan and South America are scattered through September and October, after which the band will kick off their official "Fats Tour" Nov. 4 in Pensacola, FL. That leg of the itinerary hits 26 markets before wrapping up Dec. 6 in Houston, TX.

An early 2014 U.K. excursion closes out the current schedule.

Less Than Jake are preparing for the Nov. 12 release of "See the Light," the group's ninth studio album. The Fat Wreck Chords effort comes a little more than a year after "Greetings and Salutations from Less Than Jake," which combined two previously released EPs (2011's "Greetings From Less Than Jake" and 2012's "Seasons Greetings From Less Than Jake"), as well as two new tracks.

"If you're expecting retreads and repeats, this record will disappoint," singer and bassist Roger Manganelli said of the forthcoming album in a press release. "It's all new songs and new vibes, only recorded in our old school way."
