Hometown: New Orleans, LA


At only 8 months old, PEARS (all caps, no "the") is New Orleans' newest punk band, and have come from deep within the voodoo juju gris gris swamps of the French Quarter to give you fleas/scabies/bedbugs. Their mixture of hardcore riffs, pop-punk melodies, and sludgy breaks creates a sound that belongs to them, only them, shut up.

PEARS released their critically acclaimed album, "Go To Prison", in June 2014, and was released on vinyl in September 2014 via Ryan Young's (Off With Their Heads) podcast/label, Anxious and Angry, and is soon being released in Europe via Gunner Records, and now they are on forever tour to support the album. So get ready, and bring them some birthday cake.
