Dear You is Jawbreaker's fourth and final full-length studio album. Originally released in September 1995 and taken out of print after the first pressing, "Dear You" became a cult favorite of a new crop of supporters who burned or eBay'd the album at collector nerd prices. Many new punk, hardcore, emo and pop bands cite JAWBREAKER (and "Dear You" in particular) as an influence. Now available again on vinyl.

Singer/guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach underwent surgery on his vocal chords shortly before the recording of Dear You. Containing much less raspy vocals, the record had higher production values compared to the band's previous albums. Schwarzenbach later confirmed that the move to DGC was necessary for the band to stay around, as they had been on the verge of breaking up. Considering this change in perception, along with the album's influence on the next wave of EMO and pop-punk music NME listed the album as one of "20 Emo Albums That Have Resolutely Stood The Test Of Time".
