Iceland’s Sigur Rós return to Australia this July, performing at Splendour in The Grass festival in Byron Bay, and concerts at Sydney’s Hordern Pavillion and Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena.

Having been made aware of recent comments by former tennis player Margaret Court, the band decided to commission a special tee-shirt celebrating positivity and inclusion, with proceeds going towards Australian Marriage Equality

The band approached London-based illustrator Andrew Rae to create a special crest.

Says Andrew: “What an amazing commission, combining awareness about marriage equality with the amazing Sigur Rós in a hand drawn crest to raise money to support Australian Marriage Equality… of course I’m saying yes.

That anyone still has to raise awareness about marriage equality in this day and age seems bizarre to me. As long as some people still think they have the right to decide who other people fall in love with then there’s still work to be done.”

Sigur Rós add: “We know Margaret Court’s opinions are not shared by the majority of Australians. We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia — right here on Margaret Court Arena itself. Australia should be a country that celebrates positivity and inclusion, as well as achievement on the sporting field.”

The tee-shirt will be available at all of the band’s Australian performances including Splendour in The Grass. International customers ro fans nto attending the perfomances will be able to buy the t-shirt via sigur-ros.co.uk and bandtshirts.com.au
