Hypnotic Dirge Updates and News

Hypnotic Dirge Tote Bags Available!

March 23, 2024
We have a small run of Hypnotic Dirge totebags available to order now! 
Featuring the artwork of Moonroot art, these are high-quality totes in a reasonable size (39cm x 35cm). 

EU Store | North America Store

Honestly no idea if there's any interest in this sort of thing so we just did a short run of 50 - and some will be given away to bands and friends, so quantity is pretty limited, but if there seems to be sufficient demand, we'll print more!

These will start shipping on Monday to everywhere except Canada/USA. Canada/USA shipment will start in about 10 days or so (the totes are currently en route to Canada)
