Jawbreaker confirm reunion, playing Riot Fest!
Jawbreaker have been talking about reuniting for so long, and it’s finally happening. A Riot Fest representative confirmed to Pitchfork that the band will reunite for Riot Fest Chicago this year, and that it’s currently a one-off exclusive with no other dates planned.
Jawbreaker haven’t played in 21 years and haven’t released an album since 1995’s then-controversial but now-highly-influential Dear You. In the time since their breakup, frontman Blake Schwarzenbach formed Jets To Brazil, Thorns of Life, Forgetters, and led a solo career.
Chicago is the only Riot Fest happening this year, no Denver.
