Jawbreaker gave fans an unexpected reunion in 2017 at Riot Fest, and promised new music in 2018 (that we still haven’t gotten). As we await a potential Jawbreaker record, the band has announced a 25th anniversary tour for its last album, 1995's Dear You. Yes, it’s been over 25 years since 1995, but as the band joked in a statement, “the last two years don’t count.”
Getting to see Jawbreaker live is great enough news, but the upcoming tour’s openers make it even better. Built To Spill, Descendents, Jawbox, Face to Face, Best Coast, Team Dresch, and The Linda Lindas are all accompanying Jawbreaker on tour.
Some of the shows will also feature sets by comedians, including Chris Gethard—who is all set to open the New York City shows.
It’s a short tour that makes stops in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, and New York City. Tickets are bound to sell out very quickly, but those in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York get two shows, so there are slightly more opportunities to get tickets.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 21 at 10am local time. There’s a presale for Citibank cardholders on Wednesday, January 19 at 10am ET until January 20 at 10 p.m. local time.
