Watch Steve Albini Talk Jawbreaker in Don’t Break Down, a New Documentary About the Band
Just in time for Jawbreaker’s upcoming reunion at Chicago’s Riot Fest in mid-September, the festival has shared a clip from an upcoming documentary about the band, Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker. There’s no release date or official trailer for the film yet, but according to a press release, it captures the band coming together for an impromptu reunion in 2007 to reminiscence on their rise to fame and time in the pop-punk spotlight in the 1990s. There will also be interviews with Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Albini, Jessica Hopper, Graham Elliot, Chris Shifflet, and Josh Caterer; in this clip, Albini appears to discuss the making of the band’s seminal 1994 album 24 Hour Therapy, and admits to often confusing Jawbreaker with Jawbox.
