xRepentancex – The Sickness Of Eden LP
Alongside the No Turning Back LP ”Never Give Up,” this here LP was the first gate fold I’ve done. As with the shirts I’ve done for xRepentancex, we wanted to go for a 90s vibe here. At first we wanted to have John McKaig on board to paint something for the front cover, but it wasn’t to be. Instead, we got a fantastic print done by Sue Coe, an artist that has done shit loads of fantastic political art. I decided to go for various photos that can be tied to the subjects in the lyrics, and then blend them with photos of the band, all taken at the same show. The band logo is an outtake from when I did the ”vegan straight edge” shirt in 2013, that I thought looked perfect here.
