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
Mardi Gras
Day with
Epitaph Records
band
Off With Their Heads, which gained the interest of Ryan Young.[citation needed]
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 of the
Philadelphia
band Push Ups.

PEARS debut album
Go To Prison[2]
was self-released by the band.,[3]
and was later released on vinyl through Anxious and Angry records. The band went on United States tours with bands such as
Dwarves,
Red City Radio,
Teenage Bottlerocket,
Off With Their Heads,
Direct Hit,
Lagwagon, and
The Suicide Machines; and their first European tour

with

off the heels of a European release of the record by German punk label Gunner Records
