Around this time last year, many people were at peace with knowing that Jawbreaker would probably never reunite. Things changed in an instant when they were announced as a headliner for the 2017 Riot Fest. While the band played the fest and held a few shows surrounding it, many fans from across the country hoped this reunion could lead to a tour. Today, the band answered that burning question, and for people living in one of the biggest cities in the country, this will be one of the hottest tickets in town.
The band will hold a three-night residency inside Brooklyn Steel from Feb. 26 through Feb. 28. On each night, they'll be joined by some special friends. Night one finds them with Charly Bliss and comedian Emily Flake, night two will have comedian Clare O’Kane, and the final night will feature comedian Kate Willett. Opening bands for the final two shows will be revealed closer to the event. This will be sandwiched between performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Tickets for these shows will go on sale to the general public this Friday (Jan. 12) at noon. These shows will sell out, so be sure to get yours ASAP. Their announced tour routing can be seen below. Over the summer, the band premiered their documentary "Don't Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker" in San Francisco and New York City. Last month, the band released a remixed and remastered version of their first demo from 1989.
