ALTERNATIVE PRESS Launches New Clothing Brands to Celebrate 32nd Anniversary
Celebrate with us! Limited discounted ALTERNATIVE PRESS MUSIC AWARDS tickets are available now @ altpress.com/tickets!
To celebrate 32 years at the forefront of alternative music and youth culture, Alternative Press is excited to announce the launch of its new clothing brands.
Your Brand, which will launch later this month with four clothing designs and two accessories, will feature new designs inspired by youth music culture and its community. Each release will be a limited-edition launch exclusive to altpress.com. Future releases will include collaborative designs with popular artists featured by AP and iconic brands within the music community.
The Legacy line will feature classic designs released over the past three decades. These designs will be consistently available on altpress.com. To kick things off, AP has launch a small run of T-shirts, dubbed the APone collection, featuring rare artwork and prints handpicked from the very first issue of Alternative Press. The APone line can be found at altpress.com/apone.
“It’s a really exciting time in AP‘s office with the APMAs in only four weeks, and we are so stoked on the launch of our new clothing line,” says Alternative Press General Manager/CFO Joe Scarpelli. “APone is part of our Legacy brand, which is one of two new lines launching underneath our umbrella toward the end of June. We couldn’t be more excited to expand AP‘s brand with this new line of merch that celebrates both our history and future.”

AP 349 offers the ultimate guide to Vans Warped Tour!
The 22nd year of punk rock’s most enduring tour is about to kick off, and we’ve got the essential guide for any Vans Warped Tour warrior. This year, we’re looking backward and forward: We caught up with the frontmen of Attila, Creeper, Dance Gavin Dance, I Prevail, Knocked Loose, Movements and Too Close To Touch to find out their plans for superior rock domination this summer.
Plus, bands who have been a part of Vans Warped Tour’s history share their stories of that one time at punk-rock summer camp. From horses defecating in the pit (no, really) to setting actual world records, these are VWT’s best insider stories. Members of Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, All Time Low and Good Charlotte, among many others, share their stories! Spoiler alert: A lot of people were eager to reminisce on Katy Perry’s involvement in 2008. And, we brought back our special Vans Warped Tour coloring pages. Bundles include exclusive merch item from each band, a hand-signed poster from each cover star and both covers. You can pick up the new issue at altpress.com/newissue.
