It’s official: there will be new music from Jawbreaker!

After months of speculation of new music, Jawbreaker frontman Blake Schwarzenbach confirmed on the latest episode of the Going Off Track podcast that they are indeed planning to work on what will be their record since 1995’s Dear You. Here’s what he had to say:

“Our summer is just gonna be trying to write, jam. What we really wanna do is just riff out and see what comes. I’m spending the next month writing at home, and then we’re gonna converge in San Francisco and go in a studio and see what happens.”

He was also asked what the new Jawbreaker would sound like, “I like the more band-like jams that we have [like “Bivouac”] or “Jet Black” or songs like that, that could only be as a unit.”

And then Blake was asked why the band decided to work on new music for the first time in more than two decades since their breakup, and his response was, “It’s for our own excitement. We can’t keep playing these same songs. I mean, they’re wonderful for people who have not seen it — we’re lucky there are people that wanna see it — but we need some new songs to make it exciting.”

You can listen to the podcast right here. Talk about new music from Jawbreaker comes in around the hour and 37-minute mark.

Jawbreaker broke up in 1996, but reunited a year ago and have been playing shows sporadically ever since then.

Inkarceration: see some bands (Rise Against, Suicidal Tendencies), take in a sideshow, camp, get a prison tattoo

Do your summer plans feel lacking? Have you considered going to a festival at an abandoned prison in Ohio? If so, you may want to consider the inaugural Inkarceration Music and Tattoo Festival in Mansfield, Ohio. The 30+ bands include Rise Against, Suicidal Tendencies, A Day to Remember, Clutch, Black Label Society, and, stay with me here, because shit’s about to get real, Alien Ant Farm, Fuel, and Lit.

Besides the bands on two stages, the festival will include more than 70 tattoo booths, prison tours, RV camping (bring your folks! Or hey, bring your kids!), and a sideshow. It should be noted that this is the prison Shawshank Redemption was filmed in. If you’re lucky, maybe Tim Robbins will show up and crawl through a tube of shit. I can’t really think of a better way to close out a festival.

The festival runs from July 13 -15. Check out the Inkarceration website for more details. You can check out the flyer below.



Fans Petition Jawbreaker For a New Album

Inspired by the recent reunion shows, Jawbreaker fans are appealing to the band to write and record a new record by way of petition. It reads:

“The 90’s punk music scene wasn’t just all about bands like Green Day, The Offspring or even Blink-182. There was this band called Jawbreaker who released four amazing albums that remain a major influence on pop punk, emo and similar genres in general, including their last one from 1995 “Dear You”. The band went their separate ways in 1996, but have been back together since 2017.

Given how many years it’s been since the last Jawbreaker album was released, many fans would love to hear a new album. Our patience is running out, especially after too many years of waiting for a reunion, and Blake Schwarzenbach saying in the summer of 2017 that Jawbreaker has been trying to write what may be a new album. Let’s get this petition out there and shared to as many Jawbreaker fans as possible to let the band know that we want to hear at least one new song.”

If you’re behind the motion, head over to the petition page and add your name.

Davey Havok (AFI) releasing his book “Love Fast Los Angeles” February 6th

Any big readers out there? AFI vocalist Davey Havok is releasing his new book, “Love Fast Los Angeles” February 6th. Check out the book trailer below.

Davey had this to say about the novel: ““Initially I’d considered Score’s older brother to be the protagonist and the setting to be Los Vegas,” tells Havok. “When I recognized the unique character of the young party photographer, I knew Alvin had to voice this tale. I felt it would be fun to tell a modern love story below a harsh spotlight. With LFLA, as with Pop Kids, I’ve repeatedly experienced its moments come to life around me, if not identically, very close – it’s rather unnerving. In fact, just yesterday I was told of a young lady about town who speaks with Sky’s exact faux accent. This is already happening again in the very early stages of writing the third novel. No matter how extreme, life seems to match or outdo my characters.”



Angels & Airwaves release ‘We Don’t Need To Whisper’ acoustic EP

About ‘We Don’t Need To Whisper’ DeLonge had this to say: “It’s been about a year since we put out new music and I wanted to give the fans something while the band works on the soundtrack to the upcoming Strange Times film. Being in the studio brought back memories of AVA’s first album and I thought it’d be fun to reimagine those tracks and play around with the arrangements a bit. It’s the first time we’ve ever put out an all-acoustic release and it’s great to be able to do it with these songs, which are all pretty special to me.”
