Rock cellist Gordon Withers, who currently plays with The J. Robbins Band as well as solo, and has also worked Office Of Future Plans (Dischord) and BELLS>, will release the tribute-minded Jawbreaker on Cello on New Granada Records on Nov. 1.
Withers work is also featured in the upcoming Don't Break Down Jawbreaker documentary.
Speaking of the album and Jawbreaker's influence on his life, Gordon says:
Not only did Jawbreaker's music influence thousands of bands, but they lifted the spirits of entire scenes and communities en masse. Their songs formed focal points for countless kids' formative experiences, enabling friendships and connections that would last forever. Jawbreaker's music saved at least one troubled teenage life in my own close circle and directly influenced nearly every musician I know. I am honored to be able to pay tribute to their legacy with this album.
The record releases on Nov. 1, followed by a live set at The Fest 18 in Gainesville, FL on Nov. 2.
