>>>>>07.30.09 Sixth Tour Planned<<<<<
Plans for a small rock tour through Jackson, MS-Nashville, TN-Asheville, NC-Athens, GA-Mobile, AL are being worked out for October 15th through 19th. Keep an eye on the Tour calendar as more developments come.

>>>>>07.21.09 Chaos Narcotic Tracklist, Final Discontinuation<<<<<
Recording is wrapping up on Jak's new rock album "Chaos Narcotic". Here's the (more or less) finalized tracklist:
1: Color Coordinated; 2: Flavor Of The Week; 3: Wrecking Ball; 4: The Nothing At All; 5: Hannah; 6: Night Never Falls, It Crashes; 7: Rockin Broken Record; 8: Cyanide; 9: Good Luck; 10: Repeater; 11: Dreamless; 12: Beautiful Day To Be Dead; 13: Equus Ultima

"Battery Acid" will no longer be available for sale following "Chaos Narcotic"'s release. The explanation from Jak's recording log: "The reason I discontinue the earlier albums is because the recording quality is humiliatingly subpar on just about anything pre-2008. While I understand that the day may come when the most recent three albums are far outclassed by new techniques/equipment I acquire, the difference is that unlike pre-2008 material there's still enough clarity to be submission-worthy for radio, etc. Basically, I don't feel right promoting obviously inferior material, which is why you've seen me discontinue so many albums over the past two or so years."

>>>>>07.13.09 Give Me Your Money<<<<<
PayPal Donate button added to the front page. If you want to support Jak, show appreciation for the free downloads, or just like giving money away to people, please feel free to utilize it. Saying anything else would sound like panhandling.

>>>>>06.18.09 Summer Shows, Chaos Narcotic<<<<<
Jak plays The Continental in Slidell, LA for the first time on July 3rd. Definitely worth a trip out to this place. August 1st, Jak and Sick Like Sinatra join forces at Banks Street Bar once again like some kind of sexy Voltron or something. Also, the upcoming album "Chaos Narcotic" is tentatively scheduled for a late summer/early autumn release and will likely be 12 tracks. More details like tracklist and all that when they come about.

>>>>>04.07.09 New Stop On May/June Tour<<<<<
Warrensburg, MO gets a double shot of Jak this summer: May 29th at Bottomfeeder Bay and the next day May 30th down the street at 400 Club.

>>>>>03.31.09 One Shot Austin 4/15, Final Metal Show 4/17<<<<<
Direct from Jak: "Because of, well, life, the April 17th show at The Bar with Apathy Ensues, Cathercist and Mad Dog will be my last metal show for a while. The lineup is not breaking up, nobody hates anybody, and it's not a permanent thing--mainly until a number of things settle down, children are born, and everyone's schedules open up again. When we get back to it, there'll be a lot of new material to listen to while you watch us abuse and destroy ourselves onstage. In the meantime, I'll still be doing acoustic and rock sets, as well as more stuff with Banjo and a side project I'm not supposed to mention yet."

Jak's also just added an acoustic show in Austin at Thunderbird for April 15th. This is separate from the three day mini-tour from April 9th through 11th, so if you're in the area, make sure you come out and support the gas tank.

>>>>>03.24.09 Molotov Cocktail Video Shoot Video<<<<<
Get ready for repetitious words: The "The Making Of 'Molotov Cocktail' Music Video" video is available for streaming on the View page. One more of these videos is planned for the near future--it will cover the "Thrift Store Reject" shoot.

>>>>>03.14.09 Thrift Store Reject Music Video #1 of 2<<<<<
Andrew Elliott (who you'll remember from the music video he did for "Good Luck") recently gave Jak the raw footage from the "Thrift Store Reject" shoot they filmed two years ago and challenged Jak to an editing race. Jak's is finished and can now be seen via the View page; though he does want it mentioned that this shouldn't be considered the official video for that song, as Andy's will likely be far superior. Both will remain available when the other one is finished -- you can enjoy watching Jak's version right now.

>>>>>03.09.09 Good Luck Video Shoot Video<<<<<
Head over to the View page and check out the first in a series of three videos about the music video shoots--this one covers "Good Luck".

>>>>>03.08.09 Jak Locke On Twitter<<<<<

The plan is Memphis, TN; Eureka Springs, AR; Warrensburg, MO; Des Moines, IA; Lawrence, KS; Tulsa, OK; and Monroe, LA.

>>>>>01.25.09 The Texas Ripoff Massacre<<<<<
The last three shows in San Antonio, TX, Austin, TX and Lake Charles, LA were cancelled due to the theft of Jak, Zach and Jeremy's instruments. Apologies to everyone who had planned on coming out to those shows.
