While She Sleeps have released a new t-shirt to highlight the importance of buying merch from bands.
The free-to-use design aims to “highlight the realities of being a band today,” they explain, and is available for others to download and use as they wish.
“We’ve created this to try and shed some light on how much band merch does to support an artist. This isn’t a fashion statement, it’s here to explain in the simplest terms how important it is to support the artists you love and what’s the best way to do it.
“This T-shirt isn’t just for our band, it’s for all bands & we want it to become a staple in the positive change needed in the music industry. It’s for your band as much as ours. Here’s the print file - download it, print it and let it help your band too. This message isn’t ours alone, it’s for all of us.
“It’s here to show people how much of an impact buying merch has.
“Support the music you love.”
