obey x off!

A good ol’ fashioned punk rock collaboration…

by Josh Madden

You know nothing is better than when two awesome things come together and in this case we're double stoked because this time it involves one of the raddest bands and one of our favorite brands! Artist Shepard Fairey recently worked with the band OFF! on a 7" sleeve for the Record Store Day release of their single "Learn To Obey."

Shepard wanted to work off the aesthetic Raymond Pettibon created for the band and mix in his style. The music and album art on records such as that of Black Flag, with art created by Pettibon, were a huge influence on him. The artist and band received so much good feedback on the cover that they decided to release as a limited edition tee.

If you don't know OFF!, go get familiar. The band is fronted by Keith Morris from Circle Jerks and Black Flag, along with Dimitri Coats from Burning Brides, members from Redd Kross, and Rocket from the Crypt. Check out the Tee HERE and get your mosh on to the "Learn To Obey" below. The two song single was recorded at the same sessions that yielded their forthcoming new albumOFF! is hitting the road in support of Wasted Years starting tomorrow--dates are below.
