Guster's Adam Gardner and The Zamboni's Dave Schneider have joined forces to bring you an instant indie-pop Hanukkah classic. JDub Records / Reprise Records are proud to announce The LeeVees on tour, kicking off in Baltimore on November 28th, in support of their debut release, "Hanukkah Rocks."

The song styles range from the Beach Boys-esque "Latke Clan" to the punk crunch of Ramones-inspired, "Gelt Melts" to the Hawaiian-sounding ode to a retiree who longs to be in Florida, "At the Timeshare." Yes, every song is about Hanukkah. Some say such a concept is a bit obsessive but Adam and Dave prefer the phrase "extremely focused."

The LeeVees touring band also features rabbi's-kid Shank Bone (keyboards) and Michael Azzerad (drums) author of "This Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes From The American Indie Underground 1981-1991."
