Last November, the early 2000s New Jersey punk rock band Pencey Prep resurfaced with a surprise merch drop.
Before they disbanded in 2002, Pencey Prep consisted of Frank Iero in his pre-My Chemical Romance days, John McGuire, Neil Sabatino, Shaun Simon, and Tim Hagevik. They released their one and only full-length album, Heartbreak In Stereo, in 2001.
The merch drop, which was released via Iero’s Kings Road Merch webstore, included a limited run of t-shirts, a pullover hoodie printed on Champion, and the long-awaited vinyl pressing of Heartbreak In Stereo (limited to 1000 copies). Although everything sold out, Iero took to social media last night to announce that they will be doing a very limited repress of the hoodie.
dere phrends, we have decided to do a very limited repress of our Pencey Prep pullover champion hoodie. Preorder starts tomorrow Feb 5th at 12pm EST and will go until Sunday Feb 7th at 11:59 pm on our @kingsroadmerch stores so set your alarms and happy hunting!
