The handmade, tie-dye specialists in Leo Valeri and Kyle Anderson of Brand of Sacrifice unveil their latest collection and it’s probably already gone.
Bridging the world of streetwear and heavy culture, Shibori Threads, in it’s short two year stretch has already become a championed brand among those in the know.
With collaborative drops brandishing some of the community’s most celebrated names like Killswitch Engage, August Burns Red, Spiritbox, Chelsea Grin and Dance Gavin Dance to name just a few, the label quickly established it’s footprint and backed it with the kind of quality that made it so people felt assured their money was well spent.
Far from the mass-produced rollouts of big box merch, these items are usually limited to 500 apiece and involved a detailed process that includes a custom cut, dye, and sew – underscoring the importance of quality and achieving a one-of-one kind of value. The most recent drops with Infant Annihilator, Bad Omens, and the ‘Darkbloom‘ drop that celebrated the release of the collaborative track with Brand of Sacrifice and We Came As Romans – were all quickly consumed by the label’s incredibly passionate fanbase.
For Shibori’s latest offering, the brand has linked with the likes of Beartooth, Northlane, The Devil Wears Prada and Silent Planet to deliver another drop of tie-dyed goods that are all fashionable, functional and heavy music-focused. With each of the bands included in the summer collection operating at the top of their game in the current moment, not only is the capsule relevant, it couldn’t have arrived at a more appropriate time.
Beartooth continues their reign at the top of their field. Touring in support of their lauded 2021 full length, Below, the band is also set to headline the 2022 Heavy Music Awards, where they are also nominated for ‘Best International Artist of the Year’ and ‘Best Album of the Year’.
Northlane just delivered their colossal new record Obsidian, and announced a North American run with Silent Planet set to begin this summer. The Devil Wears Prada have been rolling strong since the release of their ZII EP in 2021 and will revisit both Zombie EPs a decade apart with their late summer U.S. run that will feature the band playing both entries, in full, for the first time ever.
