Mansfield’s finest Violent Soho have lived up to the promise guitarist/beard-lord James Tidswell told us about during our podcast with him earlier in the year by teaming up with local junior rugby league club Easts Mount Gravatt and creating a jersey with all profits going towards the club… Hell Fuck Yeah indeed!
The limited edition jersey features the famous Violent Soho blazing skull logo, embellished with rugby league headgear and a mouthguard on the front, while the reverse is emblazoned with the number 4122, the South Brisbane postcode Violent Soho fans have come to recognise so well.
On the idea, Easts Mount Gravatt vice-president Daniel Giuffrida said:
“…the club are thrilled with the exclusive jersey, and the fact all four band members have registered as club volunteers. And that the profits from the Violent Soho jerseys would be a welcome source of income amidst the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
For those who have been following the boys for the past decade would know they’ve been involved with the club for years, they even filmed their music video for ‘No Shade‘ with a stack of fans, including our very own head honcho Browny who took us behind-the-scenes of the shoot back in 2016.
Violent Soho‘s latest album Everything Is A-OK (our review here) debuted at #1 on the ARIA Charts and despite the fact they can’t tour at the moment, they wanted to give back to their local community and being the mad dogs they are, what better way than supporting the little legends of the game who’ll remember this for years to come and maybe, you’ll catch them crowd surfing at the first Soho show back!
What a bunch of good
To get your limited edition jersey (and support a great cause at the same time) head here on Thursday AUG 27th 12pm AEST. Limited to 100 only!
