The Tearaways are a Santa Barbara, California-based power-pop band, most well known as part of a flourishing of indie pop bands from the 1990s that were defined by the Poptopia and International Pop Overthrow festivals. Their greatest claim to fame is perhaps being the most unknown band to have a track ("Jessica Something") included on the '90s installment of the 3 volume "Poptopia" power-pop primer compilation series. The band has remained only intermittently active throughout their entire existence, releasing records years apart and playing small local shows only occasionally.
Forming in late 2009 The Tearaways are a draw on a range of different influences from Rockabilly, Folk & Country to Punk, Ska & Reggae combined to create hard hitting songs of the common struggle that are straight from the heart. With live shows that are as honest as the working day is long and as passionate as a manís love for beer itís a family gathering and youíre all invited!
