Here’s a bit of good news from the scene in these trying times.
Pop punk veterans The Story So Far has decided to donate meals for every bit of merch they sell from April 8th to April 15th. A T-shirt, hat, or longsleeve equates to 1 meal, where 2 meals will be donated for hoodies and jackets. You can also score 15% off your order with the code “FRONTLINE15”. The meals will go straight to frontline workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Music scene fam, this is a not so pleasant article, so this is your trigger warning.
Just like every single one of you, I love local music. I love going out to festivals and coffee house shows to scope out the little guys fighting the good fight, watching them grow, and supporting them the best I can, but one thing I can not support any longer, is a terrible selection of band merch.
As was recently announced, Issues is going to be on tour with Falling In Reverse, Motionless In White, DangerKids, and Dead Girls Academy. This all commences tomorrow; although vocalist Tyler Carter has jumped the gun and posted their official tour setlist via Twitter. The theme and overall appearance is quite entertaining. Let’s take a look into their treasure chest of surprises.
The merch printing company I Need Merchhas just teamed up with Structure of Zero Design to launch the “Get Well Soon” merch sale where they will donate $1 to The Ghost Inside‘s injured members for each shirt purchased during the sale.
