Hessismore X Isaora, Band Jersey $80

We teamed up with one of our favorite New York brands ISAORA to make these terrific band jerseys. Ricky and Marc at ISAORA literally selected the fabric, created the fit and details to get it just right for the special occasion. Artwork is designed by NR2154 and the Jerseys are pretty stupidly nice overall.

Oh and wait, there is more. If you show up to a Hessismore concert with this Jersey on you get in for free. At least till next time we release an album. (Seriously).

Sheet Music, Limited Edition $30

Is anyone wondering what note Michael is playing on the “4 and" in bar 37 of “Stupidface” ? If so, this full transcription of the album will give you the answer. Or, you might just want to read along in the chart while you listen to the record ?

This is a neat little book, designed by NR2154 and signed by the entire band.
