Band merch from around the world
We started to build our band merch range way back in 1986. At the time, it was as good as impossible to get band merch and vinyls from abroad. Maybe some of you still remember those days. Band shirts were only available at gigs, and if a band didn’t tour in the UK, you wouldn’t be able to get your hands on any merch. Unthinkable nowadays, isn’t it!
Over time, we brought more and more merch over to Europe from the USA and elsewhere. The scene grew and grew and since then we’ve been able to offer a huge range of band merch from all over the world. From band t-shirts to hoodies to high-quality metal accessories, you’ll find everything here. Of course we’ve also got all the right patches for you to sew on to your jacket as well.
Experience gigs and festivals with us
Can’t wait for the next show or festival? Us neither! With our band merch you can kit yourself out in style for the next gig. We also have everything you’ll need for festival season.
Come and see us at the next Bloodstock festival. With the right band merchandise, you’ll not only be equipped for the stage, but for the campsite too. Discover your favourite bands now in our band merch online shop.
Of course, you can also kit yourself out with alternative merch from the likes of Stone Sour and System of a Down. Or wait for the breakdown with our metalcore merchandise. Soak up some sun with the merch from Australia’s Parkway Drive, or enjoy a tea with the gentlemen from Bring Me The Horizon.
As well as loads of band shirts for men and women, you’ll also find band hoodies for those cooler spring and summer evenings, as well as for the colder months of the year, plus tops, tanks and all kinds of accessories and jewellery. But that’s not all. Lots of our band merchandise clothing is exclusively available from us and can’t be found anywhere else. From leather jackets to shirts and tops to trousers and leggings, it’s all there.
Legends from the rock and metal scene
The scene is growing and growing, and there are always cool new bands to discover. However, almost all of that can be traced back to a handful of legends who have left their mark on the music world.
For example, we’d point to some of the representatives of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Of course we’re talking about Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Motörhead. These bands, and many more, have had a huge influence on heavy metal, including latecomers like the gents of Ghost.
Thrash metal is another scene which developed very rapidly. Bands like Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax are key influences on the genre. Of course you’ll also find even more thrash metal pioneers like Death Angel, Testament, Kreator and Exodus at EMP.
While we’re talking about legends and pioneers, of course we couldn’t forget about AC/DC. With albums like "High Voltage" and "Back in Black”, they’ve made a lasting name for themselves in the rock world. Bands such as Volbeat, Airbourne and Avenged Sevenfold are just a few names who have been influenced by these pioneers.
Pay homage to your favourite bands and choose band t-shirts and more from our band merch online shop - for example from Linkin Park. We’ll see you next to the stage. You can also find lots more clothing, accessories and merch in the EMP Merchandise Shop.
