Well, the rollercoaster of the Jawbreaker reunion seems to be in full swing. Adam Pfahler took to the band’s Facebook page to address the interest’s craze this morning over the potential of a Jawbreaker reunion.
“I spoke very frankly about the possibility of a reunion at the Giant Robot Dear You 20th anniversary instore last month. But I was not hinting that we had immediate plans to do so. Just said that we’d talked about it, played and actually got pretty close a few years back. But it was not to be. Trust me, I’d be the first to break that kind of news…”
So, we’ll just have to keep hoping.
