Vintage Step Forward Records "Drug Free Youth" Tank Top
Step Forward Records was a hardcore record label from Tempe, AZ. The label was short lived and their discography small, but for those interested in straight edge hardcore they were relevant for a number of reasons. First, they released records by somewhat deep cut straight edge bands like Winds Of Change who have the best promo pic ever and Freewill who had an unreleased record on Wishingwell. Second, they released the only 7" by the more notable Unit Pride. And third, they made incredible straight edge merch, with their tiled "Drug Free Youth" front print and "The Straight Edge" back. Their design aesthetic was maximalist and bold which somewhat separated them from other youth crew bands and labels at the time but made for a unique look that is still their own. This original Step Forward Records tank top is in great condition.
