Pears - (Fat Wreck Chords)


The band was formed in early 2014 by Zach Quinn and Brian Pretus, a year after the breakup of their previous band The Lollies. Quinn and Pretus enlisted former bandmate Alex Talbot to play bass and friend John Bourgeois as their drummer. The band played their first show on Mardi Gras Day with Epitaph Records band Off With Their Heads, which gained the interest of Ryan Young. After a short run with two drummers Bourgeois (who recorded Go To Prison) and Tim Harman (who went out on their 1st tour), PEARS enrolled Jarret Nathan of the Philadelphia band Push Ups.


PEARS debut album Go To Prison was self-released by the band, and was later released on vinyl through Anxious and Angry records. The band went on United States tours with bands such as Dwarves, Red City Radio, Teenage Bottlerocket, Off With Their Heads, Direct Hit, Lagwagon, and The Suicide Machines; and their first European tour with Red City Radio off the heels of a European release of the record by German punk label Gunner Records


The band is currently signed to Fat Wreck Chords, and released their sophomore album, Green Star, on April 1, 2016. Band members Zach Quinn, Erich Goodyear, and Brian Pretus are also in the band Little Bags
