Share New Merch Inspired by Latest Single
“Crooked Ways” Out Now
August 31, 2020 – Minneapolis, MN – Calling all members of the Boombox Generation: alternative rock band Motion City Soundtrack has shared new merch inspired by their latest single “Crooked Ways.” The new pieces are available now and can be purchased here: motioncitysoundtrack.manheadmerch.com.
Released on the heels of the band’s most successful tour ever, “Crooked Ways” is out now and can be streamed online via Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and more. The song was recorded almost a decade ago and produced by Mark Hoppus, though it was nearly forgotten about until recently. Upon its release, “Crooked Ways” caught the attention of Twilight series author and longtime fan Stephenie Meyer, who shared it on her personal blog.
“That post was crazy,” shares vocalist/guitarist Justin Pierre. “I remember fans telling me about her thanking us in the last book.”
Earlier today the band also announced their second collaboration with Legal Speed coffee roasters. The new batch of single origin beans is limited to 200 bags, with all proceeds donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. For more information, please visit: legalspeed.coffee.
Recently Motion City Soundtrack also released the remaining copies of an exclusive 7” that was available on tour earlier this year. The record features alternative versions of “Capital H” and “Mary Without Sound.” Sales provide assistance to the band’s touring crew as well as raise money for Save Our Stages.
