Sworn In Unhappy With Parody Band Sworn Out For Lifting Their Merch Designs


17

Sworn In‘s vocalist Tyler Dennen isn’t too pleased that parody band Sworn Out have taken to printing merch that repurposes the bands own logo and such (see here) for themselves. Dennen made numerous tweets on the matter, including:

“yo I get making fun of my band cause you don’t like us. But printing shirts to make money by using that bands name and image is frowned upon”

“it’s just a parody, it’s funny, lighten up” if this was your band you wouldn’t be saying that shit”

“I don’t mind the parody page at all. that’s not even the first one I’ve seen. just the t shirts being sold is the bothersome part. relax.”

Sworn Out said of the matter:

“Hey guys, to clear everything up for you on the shirt issue..

It wasn’t our idea whatsoever, to make SO shirts. We’re against making money off of this because, well, it’s not original content.
We aren’t selling them or making any money off their production.

(blegh)

Overthrown approached us about and and we just thought it’d be neat to see people reppin’ Sworn Out.

It is, in every sense of the word, limited–as in, I only intended for it to happen this once.

(fruck)

We’re in this not to make money, but to MAKE SUPER HEAVY WEE-OOH xDEATHxSTEPx MYCHEMCORE.

WHICH, BY THE WAY, IS DUE TO BE UP APRIL 1ST
OUR DEBUT TRACK “SUICIDE ROULETTE”

BLEGH”
