Week 9 - Monday 14th October 2019

Hello & welcome to week 9 of our blog!!

So, we have moved right into the busiest part of the year. Stock is flying in & out. The new designs that we launched this year have been doing incredibly well. The ‘We Listened’ campaign was such a success for us & the feedback has been brilliant. Which brings me nicely to the latest introduction we have this year....

Babymetal Merchandise

BABYMETAL

This creative girl group from Japan have broken a mould & created this idea of a new type of metal, and in order to achieve this, the members of the band receive "divine messages" from the Fox God… You know, the famous Fox god. (Is it Basil Brush?) Anyway, if that’s not a new way of looking at this band then I don’t know what is!

Push that though to one side for a moment though, the fanbase is HUGE!!!!! As is the desire for their merch. Get involved!!

Official Licensed Tool Merchandise

TOOL

Formed in 1990 the band has released five studio albums, one EP and one box set. They emerged with a heavy metal sound on their first studio album, Undertow (1993), and became a dominant act in the alternative metal movement going forward. Huge fanbase! Up there in terms of quality Metal bands. Well worth a punt!!!
