Vintage The Rival Mob “The Mob Rules!” Long Sleeve Shirt
The Rival Mob were a hardcore band from Boston formed in 2007. The band featured members of some of the most important and well-respected Boston bands in recent history, like Mind Eraser, No Tolerance, Free Spirit, and Mental. Rival Mob released a few tapes and EPs on various labels over the course a few years and quickly became one of the more popular bands on the scene. They would be put on every fest and get a good reaction and still be able to play a democore show. They released their LP Mob Justice on Revelation Records in 2013 and started to wind down. Some of the members' other bands, like Magic Circle and Innumerable Forms, started to take off, sure, but also they kind of achieved everything a hardcore band could. What else was there for them to do? So Rival Mob toured Australia in 2015 and made one last little tape to go along with it entitled If You Listen To Fools... The Mob Rules! before they called it a day. The tape featured three new songs and a cover of Rampage's classic "Ox Must Plow" and was released by seminal label Trash King Productions (I'm legally obligated to say that). This shirt, which features the text-based cover on the front and back along with a great repeated logo sleeve print, is in deadstock condition.
