Stubby Holders

If there has ever been a more beneficial invention to humankind's convenience than the stubby holder well, we don't care. Why? Because this is all we need. When it's hot it keeps your drink cold, when it's cold it keeps your hand warm. It can be used for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages alike, and you can wear it on your wrist in between drinks. Nobel prize contender? We think so.

Clean Design

Just a reminder that sometimes simple designs can be the most effective. We love this one for Miss V, the non-toxic cleaner. Shimmer silver on Earth Positive black Ts. Elegant simplicity.

"The Chair" at OWTN has had some talented rumps sit in it over the years, but we are stoked to welcome Annemarie Blades to the OWTN family. Annemarie has loads of experience - she has run her own clothing label and shop, has been a seller for OWTN for yonks and what she doesn't know about admin hasn't been invented yet. So next time you call the office, give her a friendly cheerio and make her feel welcome.

Merchandising company Out With The New has enjoyed a strong and long lasting affiliation with Brolga Design for many years now, and so have taken the next big step in their relationship and started co-habitating.  
As of March 1, Out With The New will be setting up shop inside the printing premises of Brolga, at 19 Mephan St in Footscray, VIC. This will ensure an even closer relationship with our suppliers and an even more hands on approach to producing your merchandise. We’re very excited for this new adventure within the production world.
So here's to an even more successful 2013, we are very much looking forward to increasing our efficiency and productivity in the year ahead!

Happy New Year - The office is OPEN

Best wishes for 2013. Out With The New has hit the ground running after a wonderful holiday break. Shows from Kerser, Missy Higgins and Ash Grunwald herald the start of the year along with awesome t-shirt designs for Songlines, Nahko, Tame Impala and JOY FM. It feels like it's going to be a great year.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Out With The New is kinda like a cat. Independent, always hungry, and living through nine lives. The past nine years we've worked right through Christmas to ensure a smooth flow of t-shirts throughout the festive season, but this year we've decided to rejuvenate and recharge our lives.

From December 14 through to January 14, the office will be closed as we sun ourselves on an anonymous beach in Fiji, sipping coconut water and catching up on some good books. It's been a great year for us and we hope for you too - wishing you the best over the holiday period and cheers to a successful and happy 2013. If you need anything, you've still got two weeks to get in touch!

Benefit for Miss Succulent

Late last year some good friends of ours opened a really cool café in Thornbury called Miss Succulent. A few weeks ago it burnt down (due to a faulty heater). Both proprietors were hospitalized and the damage bill is estimated at $100,000. In an effort to help out, Bodyjar will be performing a benefit show with very special guests, The Steel Birds and The Jonesez. This rockin’ event will take place at the Northcote Social Club on Thursday August 16th. Tickets are $25 and go on sale July 30th. They can be booked through the Northcote Social Club website. Doors are at 7:30 and all proceeds will go directly to Miss Succulent to help them re-open. Please spread the word, and head on down for a night of good times and great music, and help two good Aussie battler’s get back on their feet.

Razzle Dazzle

In the lyrics of the famous song, the way to win an audience's heart is to give 'em the ol' "razzle dazzle". Missy Higgins has made her name doing the exact opposite, preferencing honest, stripped back songwriting to any flashy tricks. Her new album tips a nod to this old classic, but we suspect she has lost none of that vulnerability that has seen her become one of the more recognised Australian talents of recent times. Her sold out tour, the first in five years, kicks off tomorrow night in Adelaide before winding its merry way through the capitals of the country. We've made all her merch too, so you can be assured of good quality, non-sweatshop gear, something close to Missy's own heart.

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Blue Mountains beatmeisters Hermitude have come a long way in the past eleven years, bringing a talented musical sensibility to an often derivative genre. Their new album HyperParadise is getting rave reviews and being called a landmark album. They've already sold out their Sydney show tomorrow night, but still have tickets left for a few more gigs around the country.

Do If You Damned, Damned If You're Not

What were you doing in 1976? I was busy being conceived. A group of guys from London were busy forming what would become a hugely influential punk act that, despite the occassional break up, legal wrangle and general transformations, is still releasing albums today. The Damned are playing a tour as fast as their music, hitting Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney over three days from January 19. We're damned excited to be printing and selling their merch. Who knows if they'll be back in this lifetime, so make sure you get to one of the shows.

Optimism At Its Best

Festival Of The Sun in Port Macquarie is one of our favourites, even though almost every single goddamn year it seems to rain. This year seems to be shaping up to be no exception, according to our man on the ground up there. However, check out the line up - Art Vs Science, Ladyhawke, Dan Sultan, Hungry Kids Of Hungary, Floatingme, The Snowdroppers, Young Revelry, Brothers Grim, Guineafowl, King Cannons... let's face it, you're probably already wet just thinking about it. It happens next weekend, December 9 and 10 at the Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park.

Enter, pursued by a bear

Nothing like a bit of Shakespearian misappropriation on a Friday night. It's all we had though, Sydney's Boy And Bear are too freakin' good to poke fun at personally - we just got their album Moonfire a couple of weeks back and its restoring our faith in not only music but in the whole damn human race. They're heading out on a national tour to support said album in a couple of weeks, so here's advance warning to get tickets early. It starts on November 2 in Newcastle at Panthers (Panthers and Boy and Bear, oh my!) and wraps up exactly one month later at the casino in Hobart. Buy up big on merch so they can put it all on black and make another album.

Ghost Stories

Perth maestros Eskimo Joe are back with a new album called Ghosts Of The Past. If I'd been asked for my input before the tour, I would have suggested playing in old, haunted hotels everywhere. It's probably why I'm not often asked for my input. They have loads of awesome merch so get along and say hi to our incredibly good looking sellers. And keep alert for plasma under the couches or whispering voices in your ear.

Sparking Off

Sparkadia, or Alexander Burnett as his mum calls him, spends far more time skipping about the venues of Europe and the US than he does back here in his home country, so to see him here again proves an increasingly rare treat. He begins a national tour tonight at the Astor in Perth, and he hints on his website that it may be the last we'll see of him for some time.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011
The Real Rapture

Jesus didn't return on May 21, but his cousins Jesus Jones are back as of tomorrow night. It's been a while since we've seen these '90s indie darlings, and the wait is well worth it for they're joined by not only The Wonder Stuff but a reunion of our very own The Clouds. My old flatmate Wes will be literally wetting himself with glee. Can't wait to see the merch!

Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Final sale weeks!

We're closing in on the final weeks of our big Webstore Clearance Sale! If we had cheap red signs and a late night TV ad spot we'd be telling you that we're closing our webstore doors and everything must go. You can get some ridiculous bargains, like that gorgeous green Beautiful Girls T you can see next to us for only $5. It finishes end of August, so don't tarry!

Thursday, July 28, 2011
Ash And Yo Mama

Ash Grunwald's gritty yet touching blues hybrid sounds just reached a new demographic - yo mama. His latest and greatest release is an album entitled Hot Mama Vibes, and he'll be wooing the mamas all over Australia in yet another very national tour. It started tonight and if it doesn't reach your town, you probably don't have a live music venue.

Saturday, July 23, 2011
Seeker Lover Keeper...Again

So we talked about them not long back but we saw them play this week and just have to say again, GO SEE SEEKER LOVER KEEPER! They are ten times of awesome, and so is the little talked about rhythm section of Dave Symes and Jim White. We also printed their t-shirts and chocolate covered tea towels. The whole tour is sold out so you may have to sneak in a back entrance, but just do it, okay?

Friday, July 15, 2011
Out With The Merch

We've decided that spending all day in warehouses is not nearly as much fun as spending all night at gigs, so we're closing down our webstore to focus on the live merch. To that end, there are loads of deals happening in the store right now from many of the artists we sell for. Have a look through and nab a bargain. To entice you, here's a photo of Bluejuice's Jake Stone modelling an Evermore t-shirt before he became famous. We've been waiting for our chance to ride his coat tails to fame and fortune ever since.

Searched it, loved it, kept it

There is nothing more wonderful than seeing the kids grow up. Not that we're the parents, but Sarah Blasko, Holly Throsby and Sally Seltmann have been near and dear to the OWTN hearts for many years now, and it brings a tear to our eye that not only have they all come together to times the awesomeness of their music by three with Seeker Lover Keeper, but they've also asked us to spruik for them on their first ever Australian tour. It kicks off tomorrow night at the Factory in Marrickville, and if you're lucky there may still be a couple of shows with tickets available.

Thursday, June 30, 2011
The Science Of Art

We've never been so excited about the end of financial year as today, which coincides with the start of a new Art Vs Science tour. (I might be lying actually, sometimes Anita gets so excited by end of financial year she turns all Hunter S. Thompson on us. We won't see her for a week and when we do it's in a photograph postcard sent from Kangaroo Island where she's skinny dipping with dolphins and having absynthe for breakfast.) In the tradition of our accounts ledgers, The Experiment is the name of the new AvS album, and the artwork alone is worth forgetting we live in a digital age now. Tour begins tonight in Perth and runs right through July.

A Message From Martin

You might know him as the drummer from Killing Joke, or you might know him as the guy who helped you get your own business off the ground. Martin Atkins is one of those flexible people who can turn his mind from a hi-hat shuffle to a lecture tour without blinking. We thought you might like to read an interview with him on The Rumpus. Our favourite quote is: "You’re always selling something; that’s the theater of it. Some musicians are still trying to get their heads around that fact. “We don’t have any tee-shirts.” Fuck off, then. You’re not nurturing your brand when you don’t have tee-shirts. That’s not about money. It’s about somebody going home with your shirt, waking up in that shirt, remembering your band, so when you play again, they’ll come and see you because there’s an affinity. You’ve used a physical object to memorialize and sustain the relationship you created the evening of the performance. Bands get so short sighted about that."

Thoughts Of New Zealand

As the city of Christchurch rapidly succumbs to the power of Mother Nature, many of our thoughts are turning to New Zealand and her people. Roots reggae act Katchafire are from the northern city of Hamilton, but we're sure they'll be emotionally charged as they tour their new album, On The Road Again around Australia as of next week. Go and find out why they're one of the world's most respected acts in their genre.

Happy In The Middle East

Townsville born The Middle East are one of those mysterious type bands that reveal next to nothing about themselves except for their music. Sometimes, with other bands, this is a ploy to detract from how terrible the music is, but in this case the music is all you need to know. They've been quietly wowing discerning listeners for so long that they're no longer able to remain a secret. They started a national tour last night in Fremantle, and will probably be in Adelaide by the time you read this. Their shows have also most likely sold out. Yes, they're that good. If you miss out on tickets, get a copy of their new album, I Want That You Are Always Happy.

Friday, May 27, 2011

It seems we were a little ambitious when we moved into our new offices in Brunswick a few months back. Sure, we had some great plans for a room dedicated solely to those little burial balls, so when you opened the door you could jump in and get buried under them, but do you know how much those suckers cost by the thousands? Instead, we have decided to lease out one of our offices. It's $150 per week (plus GST), and I'd love to give you the technical specs like square metres and all but I'm in Sydney right now and I don't have a tape measure that long. I can tell you you'd be sharing with some awesome folks who love good music and are not averse to buying you hot chips at lunch time if they're headed out that way. For more information contact Anita Morgan on 03 9386 6005, or email anita@outwiththenew.com.

Suffering The Bends Gladly

We're always a little excited when Architecture In Helsinki get in touch, and not just because they do some of the coolest t-shirt designs we've come across. This time they have a new album called Moment Bends, and to celebrate they're traipsing about the country (with some aforementioned cool design merch). They're strange, beautiful and we love them like we love ginger cake.

Thursday, May 05, 2011
Autumn Touring Craziness

When it rains, it pours. After recently lamenting the lack of tours happening, suddenly we're inundated with gigs around the country. Join us in the fun for bands like Jebediah, Eskimo Joe, Amy Meredith, Boy And Bear, Pegz, Blue King Brown and Mark Seymour. Just the thing to warm our bones as the air gets chillier.

Saturday, April 30, 2011
The Next Washington

There have been many great entities over time with the moniker of Washington, and the latest incarnation is young Megan, a prodigious lass who has got people like Paul Kelly and Tim Finn gushing like love-struck teenage boys. Her voice could stop a rabid pitbull in its tracks and her songwriting makes us suspect she may have some kind of computer songwriting circuitry for a brain. Needless to say, we are beside ourselves to be working with her on her current tour.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011
The Original Buffy

There are few people who deserve the tag "legendary", but Canadian songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie could not be called anything less. Her songs have been performed by Elvis Presley, Barbara Streisand, Neil Diamond and Cher, she was on a Lyndon Johnson blacklist of music that "deserved to be suppressed" and was a cast member of Sesame Street for five years. She's also worked tirelessly as an activist for indigenous rights and peace. She's in Australia once again playing a very limited number of shows this week, and we're honoured to be working for her!

Thursday, April 14, 2011
Dead Star Renegade Will Rock You

Melbourne's Dead Star Renegade are the kind of band that make fathers with teenage girls start to sweat. The word "rock" will never be a suitable enough description for a band that treats the subject as more a religion than a musical genre. As such, we are happy to get our rock on with the guys on April 16 at Revolver in Prahran for the launch of their debut album, Blackwing.

Thursday, April 07, 2011
Festivus For The Rest Of Us

There are not many things we enjoy more than ridiculous rhyming, and Geelong's forthcoming Festivus For The Rest Of Us certainly delivers (although we would have preferred the spelling to be "Restivus"). They also deliver on the music, with acts like Little Red, Children Collide, Bag Raiders, Muscles, After The Fall and loads more. It all happens both inside the Carlton Hotel and outside in the carpark on Easter Sunday, April 24.

Thursday, March 17, 2011
Beautiful Friday

This Friday our ol' pals The Beautiful Girls are heading up to Brisbane, this time without their gumboots. In January they had planned to play the Hi-Fi, but as half the city had turned into an aquarium they were forced to postpone until now. Tickets for the January show are still valid, even if they're still a little damp.

Tuesday, March 08, 2011
Second Impressions

Former Sydney band now London songwriter (with a band) Sparkadia will soon be back to their old stomping grounds to tour their second album, The Great Impression. The album's out March 18 and the national tour starts March 24. Young upstarts Operator Please and Alpine will be along for the ride. We'll see you at the merch desk!

Friday, February 25, 2011
End Of Kelly

It's been a fine month and a bit but the inimitable Paul Kelly winds up his A-Z Tour in style next week in the classy establishment of Melbourne's Athenaem Theatre. Weird subconscious - I just wrote "anathema" instead, something Paul Kelly certainly is not. Maybe I'm just jealous I'm not in Melbourne. In any event, if you miss him you can still purchase his new book/CD set How To Make Gravy or read one of his increasingly frequent articles in The Monthly.

Friday, February 18, 2011
Evil Live

We do love a good palindrome here at Out With The New. Our general tradition here is to work with lovely, talented, good looking artists, and for once we're happy to break that tradition and work a couple of shows for the man we hate to love, Evil Eddie. You might know him as the frontman for Butterfingers, or the guy who keeps sending your mother dirty text messages. He's playing three shows next week, in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and if he doesn't get strung up by his genitals beforehand, you should make the effort to go see him.

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

What does Out With The New, Harvard University and New Kids On The Block have in common? All three are constantly finding talented folks, taking them under their wing and then unleashing them to bigger and better things around the world. Plus, we all have a fantastic dress code.

It is with some sadness and quite a bit of soothing alcohol that we bid farewell to our office queen Cat Clarke. Tomorrow she goes to Thailand for a much needed rest after her strenuous Out With The New duties, and if she doesn't decide to become a ladyboy in a smoke-filled basement nightclub, she'll be returning home to a new job with 3D World.

What does that mean for us? Nothing! We're used to it! We change office geniuses more regularly than you change your Facebook status! We already have the delightful Kristi in the big chair (much to Cat's disgust, she hasn't finished for the day), and until she accepts a placement with Apple or Universal or Buckingham Palace, she can be contacted about any Out With The New stuff at kristi@outwiththenew.com. Phone number is the new one at the new office - 03 9386 6005. Call her and ask her for a quote on a really difficult print run, or book a long gnarly tour in, nothing like jumping in the deep end I say.

Friday, February 11, 2011

That isn't a typo, Out With The New has moved offices! We decided to get out of Pascoe Vale for many reasons, one being our neighbour's house getting set on fire and another discovering that Tony Martin works around there somewhere (that suburb is only big enough for one comedic genius), and so we moved to the infinitely more chic Brunswick. We're now situated at 52 Holmes St, East Brunswick. Exciting things about this address are: The East Brunswick is just down the street. RRR is just around the corner. A tattoo parlour and bar is at the end of the road. There's a tram stop for numbers 1 and 8 (awesome numbers) right outside our door. But the coolest thing ever is that our toilet is inside a bank vault, and there's a panic button to press that sounds an alarm if you get locked in. The fun we're going to have with that bad boy over time. Anyway, we're in the middle of painting and filing and getting set up, so if you've tried calling or emailing or popping in please understand and we'll be across everything as quickly as possible. Likewise, if you're handy with a paintbrush, don't hesitate to drop in and say "Hi" or "Where can I start?"

Friday, February 04, 2011
Getaway Then Get Back

There were some broken hearts (and probably some thankful parents) when The Getaway Plan called it quits back in 2009, not least of all their own. Like Jason Vorhees at camp time, they just couldn't resist coming back to do what they love best, and before heading back to the studio to record some of the new tunes they've been working on, they'll be starting a national tour next week to showcase them live. The shows are already selling out everywhere, so get a move on.

Saturday, January 29, 2011
Rites of Passage

Throughout history there have been many examples of rites of passage, initiations that usually involve young boys having to overcome incredible hardships to prove they are ready to become young men. It is not uncommon in these practices for the boys to have to go wandering in dangerous jungles for days or fight gigantic animals that are hungry and rabid. Melbourne has come up with a new Rites Of Passage, a festival of art, music and tattoos, and some might argue it is just as challenging and fearful. But aside from featuring tattoo artists, art exhibitions, and more you'll be able to see artists including Dallas Frasca, Bomba, Tijuana Cartel, Spencer T. Jones, Abby Dobson, Abbie Cardwell. If that's not worth a little personal growth, we don't know what is. We're slap bang in the middle of the festival right now so if you're looking for something to do this weekend, you've just found it.

Friday, January 21, 2011
The Letters Of Kelly

Paul Kelly has more sides to him than a decimated Rubik's Cube, but possibly the most fun of all is his A-Z peformances. They're almost as famous as the songwriter himself, and he's back on the roadas of last night to take these evenings of mirth and enjoyment around the country. He's also promoting a new book called How To Make Gravy, a companion piece to the A-Z Recordings that come in a special pack with the book, and contains many writings that place so many of his songs into context. If you've read any of Kelly's works you'll know he is as masterful with the pen as he is with the guitar.


Thursday, January 13, 2011

We knew this would end up happening - with the crazy weather up in Queensland many shows will be getting cancelled or shifted and unfortunately The Beautiful Girls is one of them. They posted this apology for their fans:

We are very sorry to announce that the Hi Fi Brisbane show has had to be postponed. The show will now take place on the 18th of March. Tickets for Saturday nights show will be valid for the 18th or can be refunded at the point of purchase. VIP comp winners will be still valid for the 18th. The Coolangatta Hotel and Kings Beach Tavern will be on.

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Or if you're not into violence, give them a hug. It's been a long and exciting year and we are all very relieved to be taking a short break to get as drunk as possible (while Craig drinks milk) and kiss every person possible under our trademarked mobile mistletoe. We'll be closing up at end of business today (which is now, why aren't we at the pub?), and re-opening on Wednesday January 5. Come the new year, we're very excited to be working with fine upstanding acts including The Shout Out Louds, Shihad, The Beautiful Girls, Missy Higgins and Royal Crown Revue, and that's just in January. Have a really tops Christmas and a smashing New Year, and we'll see you on the other side of the hangover.

Tour time

It's been a little while since we name dropped, so here are the folks we're happy to be sharing tour vans with over the next few weeks - Angus & Julia Stone, Art Vs Science, Shihad, PVT, Paul Dempsey and Funkoars. We're also more than a little excited to be helping out the good folks at Caloundra Music Festival in October, who are hosting some sets from the likes of Powderfinger and Paul Kelly. But more on that later!

Dugald is lugging around a truckload of merch and it's been selling like mad. If you haven't already got your tickets, check out the Tours page.

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Nerd alert!

Are you the kind of person who can't help but correct people when they recite Tom Waits's discography in the wrong order? Do you know the differences between Simon and Garfunkel? Could you name the ARIA winners for the last ten years? If so, you probably need to get laid. You might find someone who finds you attractive competing on RocKwiz, an incredibly funny show that quizzes contestants on things much more interesting than the above. They're on the road, we've printed the merch, I don't even need to give you the question, you know the answer to that. Check out the tour page for details.

ARIA winners!

Out With The New would love to extend large hugs and discreet bum pinches to Sarah Blasko, Hilltop Hoods and The Presets for their ARIA wins last night. We enjoy working with all these folk in a variety of ways, and look forward to pestering them to see if there really is chocolate inside that little pointy thing.

It is with very heavy hearts indeed that we bid farewell to our much loved webstore manager Henry and his faithful mutt Marley. We are losing him to the lures of Norway and life as a father, and although he's moving to a Nordic country in the middle of winter where he'll either be drained of blood by vampires thriving on the longer night hours or burned alive in a church by a black metal band looking for some publicity, we still hold out some hope he'll return at some point to weave his webstore magic once again. Thanks so much for everything guys, you'll be sorely missed.

Final shows ever for Bodyjar

For over a decade BODYJAR have experienced the complete gamut of rock … from playing to 3 people at the humble Tote Hotel, Collingwood to playing in front of 45,000 punters in Korea and selling out shows in Japan. They’ve been in the Who Weekly crossword, been referenced on "Neighbours", ignored by "Home And Away", and seemingly less importantly, ignored by Australian commercial radio … cos in the end the JAR still managed to pick up a couple of Gold Records along their way without any real support from mainstream radio. Guess there’s no fooling punters who know great music when they hear it. Get along to a show and pay your respects. See tour page for details.

As We Follow Blasko

It's no secret that we here at Out With The New are huge fans of Sarah Blasko, but even our devotion was raised more than a few notches with the release of her new album, As Day Follows Night. In our humble opinion it's one of the best damn records released in as many years as we can think of. Seriously, it's that good. Craig saw her in Bellingen last night and nearly didn't return, such was his enchantment from the performance. We're very excited to have printed brand new shirts for this run (based on the cute little character from her new video clip, No Turning Back), and they're selling like crazy. Make sure you get along to one of her shows, they are truly something to behold.

Dallas Frasca changed venue this Saturday

It shocked us all at OWTN today to discover that the beloved Peninsula Lounge in Mooroduc shut its doors today. Dallas Frasca was scheduled to play there on Saturday night, but due to all gigs being cancelled has rescheduled the show to The Baha Bar at 2409 Point Nepean Road, RYE. Tell all your friends and trek on down to Rye for some fresh sea air and what promises to be a great gig.

Out With The New are very, and I mean very, happy to officially welcome our new Super Manager to the fold, crazy Mexican Juan Cueller. He's like an office version of a rabies-mad wrestler. He comes with high credentials as well, having run merch for Rise Against for many years, as well as traveling with the massive Warped Tour. If there's anything you need in the realms of shirt production, staffing, or tips on making the most tasty quesadillas, you can reach him at juan@outwiththenew.com.

Happy New Year! Our dilatory greeting is not due to the nursing of hangovers but rather the resting of muscles, as the new years period was crazy for us. Big thanks go out to Rollercoaster Festival, Peats Ridge Festival and All Tomorrow's Parties for looking after us and ensuring we slept well the next day.

In other news, with the new year comes new beginnings and so it is for our wonderful staff Janet and Amy. Without mincing words they've been running this damn company for ages, and it is with great sadness that we bid them a fond adieu. However, we'll be welcoming a new team soon, so we'll keep you updated and make some formal introductions before too long.

In the meantime, there are plenty of tours to keep you interested in music for 2009 - including the likes of The Waifs, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Church, Something With Numbers and the triumphant return of funnyman Tim Minchin. See you at a show soon!

All Tomorrow's Parties Hits Australia!

All Tomorrow's Parties is a peripatetic festival that has, over the years, attracted a reputation as being one of the most magical and incredible festival experiences in the entire world. Curated by respected musicians, these excursions boast line ups of such talent that it's not uncommon for fans to travel overseas just to see the line up. I was trying to work out how to get to England for the Melvins/Fantômas one this week myself. For the first time in its illustrious history, All Tomorrow's Parties is coming to Australia, and who better to curate than Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds. They'll be presenting a stunning line up including acts like The Saints, The Dirty Three, Spiritualized, The Reels, Bill Callahan, Laughing Clowns and many, many more. Tonnes of sideshows will happen around the main events, and we're pleased as a punch drunk porpoise to be printing up a special run of All Tomorrow's Parties merchandise as well. For more information have a look at the tours page! Boo-ya!

We find it really hard to believe, but it seems our printers actually like to have a holiday over the Christmas break. Some people! As such, if you are a band or organisation that would like merchandise printed up over the next month or so, you'll be interested in our deadlines. These are:

Friday December 5
All artwork and quotes must be approved by this date if you would like your merch by the end of the year (it should be done by December 20 at the absolute latest). If you miss this, then the next deadline is:

Thursday January 15
This is the next date we'll be able to have your stock ready by, and this is assuming all artwork and quotes are approved by January 5.

Yes, it's a bit of a gap but we work those poor printers so hard all year we need to cut them a little slack to save them cutting our arms off. If you have any questions about production please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

We're stoked with our new Tshirt suppliers, but as luck would have it, we have a little stockpile of blank American Apparel shirts left over from a couple of orders. Our overordering becomes your party as we let them go out the door cheap as chips. Click here to pick yourself up a bargain.

What About Bob?

Our hearts are all a-flutter at the prospect of working with Perth's loveliest wandering minstrel, Mr. Bob Evans (if that is his real name...ahem). He'll be bringing a new band out on the road and playing a bunch of brand new tracks he's been recording in Nashville for his third album, Goodnight, Bull Creek!, due out around April/May next year. Check the tour page for details.

Being a company predominantly staffed by females, the whole “Movember” initiative of growing facial hair for charity becomes a little difficult. Not impossible, of course, but none of the Out With The New ladies have been prepared to ingest the necessary hormones for such a feat, and the three blokes are usually so unshaven it seems a bit of a pisstake to embark on such a scheme in any event. Instead, we are holding our own Movember, and this time the charity is you.

For the month of November, we will give you, our loyal bands who need merch manufactured, mo’ fo’ yo’ money. Movember. Get it? It’s a stretch, but we missed “Stocktober”, give us a break.

For the month of November, any stock ordered and paid for by November 30 will receive a 5% discount. This covers all of our super brand new stock (which, might I add, is cheaper than the old stuff even before this special deal) – the Organic range, the regular range, posters, bags, badges, everything. Anything at all you need us to put together, you will get a discount so long as it’s ordered and paid for by November 30. We’ll also cover reprints in this because we’re so goddamn excited. Please note this does not extend to stock on the webstore, this is a deal for the bands we print for. For a new catalogue or any further information please contact Amy or the office.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

We are most chuffed to be assisting one of the coolest bands around right now finish off their tour, and we are talking of none other than The Drones. I am in fact awaiting a copy of their new album as I type. They only have a few shows left in Sydney, Brisbane and the west side (WA), so don't miss out if you can avoid it, they don't really play too often. Dates on the tour page!

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Festival season seems to come around earlier every year. Before long we'll be celebrating the summer festivals in June. At any rate, we are very excited to be working with a whole range of crazy festivals both large and small in the coming weeks and months - namely Sounds In The Grounds at the Sydney Uni Manning Bar this Saturday October 18, Fat As Butter in Newcastle on Sunday November 2, Trackside in Canberra on Saturday November 22, Festival of the Sun in Port Macquarie over December 12 and 13 and, just confirmed, the massive Peats Ridge Festival on the NSW Central Coast over New Years Eve! Keep an eye on the tours page for details of who's playing, and make sure you bring your wallets a loaded and ready for action because there is going to be miles of merchandise!
