New “Shark Week” tee from CHVRCHES

chvrches_blog

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!

Help us complete the YBP covers album!

YBP_GoodPeopleRock_CoverDesigns_blog

This is news and excitements. For many years, three to be concise, we’ve been hooking up indie rockers in the hopes of producing a covers compilation. YBP on YBP if ya know what we mean. And today’s the day we get to announce that we’re almost there man… so close. We’re almost there and boy oh goodness does it sound incredible. These guys have poured their hearts and guts into the tunings of their counterparts and it’s all coming up indie flavoured daisies. The songs are there, all 10 of ‘em, but alas, we need a booster to pay for the mastering, vinyl pressing, CD makin’, the distribution aspect and the creative geniuses in artwork and marketing to get this carriage in motion…

…enter the PledgeMusic Campaign..

Hover on down to see the wicked cool YBP artists that got behind this campaign and then check out the Pledge page. Each of these musical darlings used their own goods, their private time and mixed their tracks themselves to bring you an awesomely different rendition of your YBP faves. And you can be a part of it’s creation. Your hot little hands can help make it. And we’ve got heaps of sweet rewards for goings too. Let’s get the indie rockin’ music on high rotation.

Saunter over here and have a squiz.
