The Black version of this shirt sold out of it’s limited run in a few days. After much discussion with the band and Thomas, we decided the offer a small run of this new colorway with GLOW IN THE DARK ink. Good Times!
STOP IT! The Locust and Thomas Hazelmyer have teamed up with us to produce 300 of these amazing garments. You’re probably already aware of the Locust’s Devo meets unholy WTF noise punk. This San Diego gang of freaks has been one of our favorites since we first heard their 1998 full length debut. Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to film them at several festivals and see them at various shows around the country. After working with Justin Pearson earlier this year on a shirt for his Three One G label; I mentioned that we would love to work on a shirt for The Locust. We just needed to find an artist that all 4 “opinionated old men” could agree on and come up with something everyone loved. I immediately thought of Thomas “Haze Xxl” Hazelmyer.
In 1986 Thomas founded Amphetamine Reptile Records; a label that all but defined 90s underground noise rock and became a model that many bands, labels, and artists still aspire to. Thomas’s linocut prints caught my eye a few years ago when he started releasing uber-limited Melvins releases featuring his hand printed work. As it turns out, The Locust were also fans. Thomas nailed this one on his first try (no pre-approved sketches or anything) and it’s an understatement when I say that we’re excited to offer this design for your consumption. -Charles Cardello/ Bifocal Media
