This year Riot Fest will offer an exclusive sneak peek of Don't Break Down, a Jawbreaker documentary 10 years in the making. The clip will take place in Chicago during the period where they were excited to record their popular album 24 Hour Revenge Therapy with Steve Albini.
Don't Break Down tracks the journey of the beloved pop-punk band from inner band struggle, health issues, and the aftermath of signing to a major label to ceasing the band and reuniting in 2007 in a San Francisco recording studio. The documentary features interviews with Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Albini, Jessica Hopper, Graham Elliot, Chris Shiflett, Josh Caterer and more. Jawbreaker is slated to perform at Riot Fest 2017, scheduled to take place September 15-17 in Chicago's Douglas Park.
