The band is back together, and we couldn’t be more excited for Jawbox’s 2019 reunion tour. Since their tour announcement in January, fans have become absolutely ecstatic over it.
In the 90’s, Jawbox was the band every true rocker was listening to. The band was definitely heading in the right direction especially with a switch from a minor music label to a major music label, Atlantic Records. Gaining plays on the radio and MTV, Jawbox quickly established themselves in the music scene with notable hits like “Savory” and “Cooling Card”. The band’s 8 year run came to an end when the decision to call it quits happened in 1997. Fast forward to 2009, the reissue of For Your Own Special Sweetheart, 3rd album released by Jawbox in 1994, is on its way. In celebration for the reissue, Jawbox makes a surprise performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon playing a fan favorite, “Savory”. In the Late Night appearance, Jawbox not only thrilled their fans over their reunion performance but broke their hearts when they made it clear that no other performances will be made together as a band. Fortunately, these heartbreaks were later mended with a reunion tour this year!
This highly anticipated tour includes 12 dates happening in the Summer. Due to high demand, Jawbox has been adding 2nd shows to many of their dates so far! One of the major cities that Jawbox will be visiting is Los Angeles. The band has already sold out their first show at the Regent on June 13th but luckily a 2nd show has been added on June 14th so that every fan is given the chance to witness this legendary moment!
Grab your Jawbox tickets here for June 14th at the Regent!
