Jawbreaker, the Punk icons who former in the late 80s, are the subject of a new documentary entitled Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker.
Set to premiere at the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in San Francisco in August, Don’t Break Down was directed by Tim Irwin and Keith Schieron.
Active for a decade during 1986 and 1996, Jawbreaker went on to influence a host of bands around the time and, as explained in the trailer below, many believed they had the ability to bridge the gap between the likes of Nirvana and Green Day.
The documentary features interviews from band members, producer Steve Albini, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett, and others.
Jawbreaker will reunite for their first show in 21 years as the headliner of the final night of Riot Fest in September 2017.
