Some of the most popular band t shirts of the past year have been revealed by top alternative t shirt retailer Blue Banana, providing very interesting reading for fans of music and followers of the biggest trends in band merchandise.
In amongst the top ten most popular band tees sold in the last year was Bring Me The Horizon, with the British metalcore band seeing a huge surge in popularity following a very successful year on the alternative music scene. Thanks to this and several successful gigs, their Zombie Brain t shirt was amongst the most popular band t shirt merchandise consistently throughout the year.
The success of the metalcore alternative scene in general saw a giant leap in merchandise sales for other bands associated with the music genre, not least Asking Alexandria, who although did not release an album during 2012, still managed to pick up some massive t shirt sales thanks to their energetic performances and the free release of the single called ‘Run Free’, which was made available to download through a promotion with Axe.
Asking Alexandria’s most popular shirt of the year turned out to be their Eyeballs t shirt, which features a purple background, orange branding and an absolutely crazy graphic which has the added advantage of grabbing people’s attention no matter who is wearing it.
The most popular alternative scene band t shirt of 2012 had to be something special, and it had to be from a band who have taken the scene by storm in recent years. Black Veil Brides are an American rock band featuring Andy Biersack on lead vocals, and they’ve grown and grown since their formation in 2006 to now have one of the biggest ranges of band merchandise available.
From this selection, it was their skinny fit On Fire shirt which blew all the competition away last year, proving to be the most popular alternative band top by a country mile.
