Rival Schools were a band started in 1999 by Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Project X, WarZone, Quicksand, World's Fastest Car, Memory of a Free Festival), Ian Love (weird incarnations of Burn and Supertouch), Cache Tolman (Iceburn), and Sam Seigler (Side by Side, Youth of Today, Project X, Judge, Civ). Despite the bands hardcore pedigree, the four piece played a melodic yet still off-beat style of rock. People called it post-hardcore because of where it fell in the band member's lineage. Others called it indie rock. Their 2001 debut LP is entitled United By Fate, a nod to the Capcom video game Rival Schools: United By Fate, and was produced by Grammy Award winner Luke Ebbin and released by Island. The band broke up shortly after its release, in 2003. Since then, they reunited in 2008 and released another album, Pedals, in 2011. This original Rival Schools shirt, lightly worn in great condition, features the album art from the band's debut album, United By Fate.
