Jawbreaker have released an official live video of “Want” and “Boxcar” from their recent show 924 Gilman.
Jawbreaker confirm with Music Radar that they’re working on new music:
We’re writing right now and we’ve rescued a couple of old songs that we never had a chance to record right at the end of the band. We’re going to get together in San Francisco and get right back to it. We don’t have a label yet, and we haven’t booked any studio time. We’re just dipping our toes and taking it one step at a time.
Jawbreaker has announced some new tour dates.

The documentary Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker screened in New York last night. After the premiere Blake Schwarzenbach did a Q&A, Brooklyn Vegan reports:
Another highlight of the Q&A: Blake said Jawbreaker is “trying to” write new music, and while it doesn’t seem like we should hold our breath (this is a band who took 21 years to reunite, after all), he certainly didn’t rule out a new Jawbreaker album, and seemed like he would be excited if there was one.
Jawbreaker’s recent show in San Francisco was recorded and shared on YouTube by BayAreaPunkShows.
Nina Corcoran, writing for Sterogum, with a review of Jawbreaker’s San Francisco show:
On paper, Jawbreaker’s show at Rickshaw Stop seemed like a dream. It marked the band’s first headlining show in 21 years in their hometown of San Francisco, no less, at a 400-cap venue. Two local, since-defunct ‘90s punk bands — Monsula and Nuisance — opened. Jawbreaker kept to their DIY roots to a certain extent, opening it up to all ages and selling tickets for $20 with an intense anti-scalper will-call pick-up. For a band that swore it would never reunite, but then announced it would indeed reunite at Riot Fest 2017, performing a proper set in the small-sized venue setting they never broke out of during their career seemed as good as it could get. Yet somehow, Jawbreaker exceeded that.
Blake Schwarzenbach of Jawbreaker is on the first episode of the Missing Words podcast.
In our premiere episode, we discuss the relationship between nostalgia, reunions, and coming back to artistic creations after quite some time during these not-so-optimistic times.
Why exactly do certain records get dismissed by one generation only to find a whole new one appreciating it for different reasons? Why do we want bands to come back so we can experience something we may have missed being a part of?
Some videos from Jawbreaker’s first show in 21 years have appeared online. You can check out a few of those with the seven song setlist below.
Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker will premiere on August 11th. You can check out a new trailer on Vimeo.
