The Rotted Comments On "Anarchogram" Postcard Problems

Guitarist Tim Carley of The Rotted has issued the following statement about a delay of postcards which feature their "Anarchogram" logo:

"In an annoying example of religion getting in the way of art on even the most basic level, we’ve had the manufacture of some merchandise for the tour delayed! The item in question, the postcards we had planned to give away at the shows next week features our ‘Anarchogram’ logo, and the printers have refused to print them due to the company's ‘Christian faith’. How outdated, mundane, backwards and boring! But its their right and their choice to lose out on some cash, so fuck 'em!!

"The Anarchogram is a logo we use to show our loyalty to, and unity between the metal, punk and hardcore scenes we love! The Anarchogram is a symbol we designed using a pentagram and an anarchy ‘A’ blended together, with the pentagram representing metal and the anarchy ‘A’ representing punk! The slogan ‘No Gods No Governments’ is a statement of intent, basically think for yourselves! Don’t believe the bullshit of religion and don’t believe the scaremongers and liars that run the world. Just try to be an individual and live life your way! Band members and friends of the band have already had the Anarchogram tattooed and we will be adding some tattoo flash (designed by Trudgill) to our websites for anyone to download and get tattooed if they like the idea too! We hope to get the postcards printed elsewhere in time for Sunday and the start of the tour with Alestorm. We had planned to offer them as signed limited edition freebies on the merchandise stalls so hopefully we can still do this.

"Anyway, rant over, there's far worse things happening in the world in the name of religion right now, but this was mine for the day. Long live metal, long live punk, long live free thought and artistic expression!"
