Jawbreaker TicketsJawbreaker's reunion has been well-received by fans and critics. Throughout the '90s, Jawbreaker garnered a devoted audience that related to its soaring and occasionally melancholic pop-punk as much as singer-guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach's understated lyrics. Songs like "Boxcar" became anthems that everyone could sing along with. Internal tensions led to a 21-year hiatus before the band reunited in 2017. Continuing to tour, Jawbreaker has connected with a newer audience as one of the originators of pop-punk.
Punks With Hearts of GoldFounded in New York by Schwarzenbach and Adam Pfahler in 1986, the duo was soon joined by bass player Chris Bauermeister. Influenced by an array of music, including hardcore punk, Jawbreaker recorded nearly two dozen songs between 1988 and 1990 before releasing its debut album, Unfun, in June 1990. Part of the underground scene that bred bands like Nirvana, Jawbreaker toured and relocated to San Francisco. On subsequent albums like Bivouac and 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, the band attracted a devoted following. With the grunge scene in full flower, the band signed to a major label and released Dear You in 1995. Noticeably more produced than its predecessors, the album proved less popular with some of the band's fanbase, and Jawbreaker soon broke up. Jawbreaker maintained its reputation as a group of intelligent punks unafraid to wear their collective hearts on their sleeves. They reunited for Chicago's Riot Fest in 2017.
