This video is a good introduction to Jason Lives. It contains live and studio footage of the band, as well as random crazy footage filmed over the years.

We are a punkish/metalish band from the fine town of Warragul in Australia. Ross tries to play guitar and sing, Luke pretends to sing and play bass and Dave tries to call himself a musician by hitting pig skins. We write about such things as horror movies, personal experience, world issues and food. We do not restrict ourselves musically or lyrically.
Why this name?
We all like horror movies. We were first called The Voorhees after Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies but we later found out there was another band with that name so when we reformed we called ourselves Jason Lives.
Do you play live?
Normally in Warragul or Melbourne. Every show is a lot of fun. There have been so many special and funny moments.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think it is great for both artists and fans. It's a great way for bands to get their music heard and promote themselves. It is also a great way for people to find out about new bands.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Especially if they told us we had to write more love songs, give up creative control and wear pink skin tight outfits on stage. But seriously, YES.
We formed as The Voorhees in 1996, played gigs and released 2 demos (Sprich Nomed and The Doug Conspiracy) then split in 1999. We reformed in 2003, recorded an EP called 'Life' and did gigs, original drummer Dan left and Dave joined, did more gigs and recorded next CD '13'. During our time we have had exposure in such publications as Kerrang and Buzz, made a special TV appearence, performed live on several radio showsand had our music used on DVDs including Home Grown Maniacs.
I don't believe we sound the same as any of these bands but we are inspired by many such as Bad Religion, SNFU, Strung Out, Guttermouth, The Vandals, Lagwagon, Iron Maiden, Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir.
