Packing heavy guitars, massive melodies, and a larger than life personality, Jobber are throwing down the gauntlet at the intersection of alternative music and professional wrestling to make songs that are sure to please fans of the squared circle and rockers alike. Led by Meizner (current member of The Glow, Hellrazor, and Maneka, as well as former touring member of Potty Mouth and Snail Mail) and drummer Mike Falcone (current member of Hellrazor and former member of Speedy Ortiz and Ovlov), Jobber explore the parallels between professional wrestling, life as a musician, and gig worker frustrations. The band's songs are delivered from the top rope with equal parts ferocity, melody, humor, and brains. It's an impressive amalgam that--like many of the best wrestlers--transcends the gimmick to tap into something true and potent. Start rooting for them now, because Jobber are coming for the championship belt.
