Sigur Rós have released a brand new shirt in support of marriage equality. The t-shirt comes just as they are prepping a brief run of shows in Australia and want to take advantage of that moment, notably with the recent controversy surrounding comments made by Australian tennis great Margaret Court.
“We know Margaret Court's opinions are not shared by the majority of Australians. We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia - right here on Margaret Court Arena itself,” says Sigur Rós in a statement. “Australia should be a country that celebrates positivity and inclusion, as well as achievement on the sporting field."
They will perform on July 27th on Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne as the final date of their tour.
London-based illustrator, Andrew, Rae was approached to create the crest on the shirt.
Proceeds from the shirt will go towards Australian Marriage Equality. It will be available at all of their gigs down under, but also online for the rest of the world who can’t make it. Pick up a shirt via their online store and find their tour dates below.
