“Two hours before we were supposed to leave for Australia, our bassist made it known that he would not be coming,” PEARS vocalist Zach Quinn says of their current tour. “Do we cancel? No. We ain’t fucking quitters. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep the train a-chuggin’ forward. So, I’ve been playing bass, Chris [Aiken] from Strung Out has been playing bass, Strung Out’s sound guy, David, has been playing bass. Nothing will stop us. Nothing.”

Then, Quinn broke his hand. When asked how—or possibly, why?—guitarist Brian Pretus replies, “He punched the stage.” Fair enough. Frankly, it doesn’t seem out of character.

Despite all of the tumult, the New Orleans band mean it when they say they’re not fucking quitters. PEARS will almost assuredly press on and complete their March Australian run, then return to the States as planned to play more dates through April, May, and June—including a stop in Kingston, Jamaica (see all their tour dates here). This blistering, hand-smashing schedule is all in support of Green Star, the band’s sophomore record, which drops April 1 on Fat Wreck Chords.

You can read the full PEARS feature in issue #24, but in the meantime check out the band’s new song “Cumshots” below.
