Vintage Desperate Measures "It's On Your Hands" T-Shirt
Desperate Measures were a unity hardcore band from Maryland formed in 2001. They self-released a demo the same year and followed it up with It's On Your Hands 7" and Never Enough Time LP in 2002 and 2003 respectively, both on Youngblood Records. The band didn't really sound anything like Leeway despite taking their name from their 1989 album, they were more similar to late 80s straight edge bands with some NYHC sprinkled in, kind of like a proto-democore band. DM broke up in 2004 and members went on to form Lion Of Judah and later Give. This original Desperate Measures shirt in great condition is the band's second design and features art by tattooer Matt Rinks.
