A Possible Jawbreaker Reunion Is On The Way

Get ready to explode, emo-punk internet! A possible Jawbreaker reunion is underway, for real this time. 

Drummer Adam Pfhaler gave a talk at Los Angeles' Giant Robot 2 gallery last month where he outlined a possible comeback and sounded pretty optimistic:

"We’ve totally talked about it, and everyone is excited...We played a couple of songs just to see if we could still do it. We weren’t sure if we could still do it. We could still do it." 

When asked if the band—which released four albums in the early '90s, starting with the 1990 debut Unfun—has been given any offers for reunion, Pfhaler added:

"They start calling you and offering you crazy, crazy money. [Audience member mentions Coachella.] Anything you've heard is probably true...They offer you crazy money to do two shows, and that's amazing. But it just hasn't come to that. The kind of people we are, Blake [Schwarzenbach] would not do it for all the money in the world. And I would do it for nothing. So it's two sides of that same coin."

It really sounds like this is going to happen, guys. He continued:

"That's part of the reason we got together in New York. We were testing the waters, [like,] 'Can we hang out together? Could it be cool? Could it sound good?'...A couple of years back it got real close, but there was a bigger band, they were waiting on an answer to headline one of the festivals. And then sure enough they did it, they took their slot, and it relegated us to the following year. And the timing wasn't right the following year."
