Danzig is the self-titled debut album from Glenn Danzig’s bluesy hard rock band that was released in August 1988. The album was the first release on producer Rick Rubin’s new label, Def American, and was slower, harder, heavier, cleaner, and more sonically spacious than anything Danzig had recorded with his previous bands. The album was reissued in the United States and the United Kingdom in 1998, and it remains the band’s best-selling album to date, having been certified Gold in the U.S. in 1994, and having since been certified Platinum. Danzig promoted the album with a successful world tour in 1988–1989. Although the record sounds like a lot of classic hard rock today, Danzig seemed almost unclassifiable at the time. Although this design is generally referred to as ‘The Danzig Skull,’ it was actually in use with Samhain and even then, it was originally lifted from the cover of a short-lived comic book, Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior volume 1, issue 8.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
