More than 35 years after forming on the campus of New York University, Jawbreaker remains one of the most beloved and influential bands of the post-punk era. Vocalist/guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister and drummer Adam Pfahler carved a unique niche in the emo and alternative scenes with indie classics such as 1990’s Unfun, 1992’s Bivouac (which led to tour dates with Nirvana) and 1994’s 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, which was included in Pitchfork’s Top 100 Favorite Records Of The 1990s.
Jawbreaker signed to a lucrative deal with the major label DGC Records ahead of the release of 1995’s Dear You, which further raised the band’s mainstream profile but inflamed long-simmering internal tensions. Jawbreaker disbanded in 1996 and its members moved onto other projects in and outside of music. After turning down regular offers to reunite for more than 20 years, the trio returned to the stage to headline the Riot Fest 2017 in Chicago and later toured North America and Europe. A career-spanning documentary, Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker, was also released in 2017, as well as a 33 1/3 book by Ronen Givony.
Rolling Stone lists Dear You as #4 in their “Top 40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time” and have noted “ their fingerprints are all over much of the rock that took over mainstream radio in the mid-2000s.” Countless bands cite them as inspiration and fans including Green Day, Blink 182, Dashboard Confessional, and Nirvana, who took the band on a 1992 tour.
