PEARS is an American punk rock/hardcore punk band formed in 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
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 band mate 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 (band), which gained the interest of Ryan Young. After a short run with two drummers (Bourgeois and Tim Harman), PEARS enrolled Jarret Nathan of the Philadelphia band Push Ups.
PEARS debut album Go To Prison was self released by the band. The band went on United States tours with bands such as Dwarves (band), Red City Radio (band), Teenage Bottlerocket, Off With Their Heads (band), Direct Hit (band), 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 and Brian Pretus are also in the band Little Bags.
