New t-shirt from John Grant


It is our privilege to announce the newest addition to the YBP t-shirt family, from the one and only John Grant.

The t-shirt, designed by Toby Triumph, bears an illustrated portrait of John himself, holding an owl with the phrase: ALL BETS ARE OFF written underneath.

The aforementioned phrase is a lyric from the chorus of his new single, ‘Grey Tickles, Black Pressure‘, where he sings: “There are children who have cancer… so all bets are off.”

Proceeds from this tee will benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – a facility that has literally changed the way the world treats children with cancer and other diseases.

T-shirt available here.

New “Shark Week” tee from CHVRCHES


Check out our latest t-shirt design from CHVRCHES. Here’s the story, according to the band, of how this tee came to be:

The idea for this design is an easy one to explain. In the early days of the band… we came up with the hare-brained idea that we were going to play a few warm-up shows under a pseudonym… “Shark Week”. In the end we chose not to go with that name because we would probably have gotten sued by a popular television channel but also because it sounded a bit fierce, a bit loaded. Chvrches was more universal, bigger sounding, more of a blank canvas, so that’s what we went for in the end. This t-shirt design is a tribute to the electronic pop outfit whose career was very short lived indeed. Just three short but sweet shows in their home territory.

Note: as a Black Friday / Cyber Monday spesh, we’re offering FREE SHIPPING for all North American customers – from now until Monday only!
