PEARS is an American hardcore punk band formed in 2014 in New Orleans.
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 Mardis Gras Day . 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.
