New Poets of the Fall Summer Merchandise
[Water Bottle, Tote Bags, Vest, and Fan]

This week, Poets of the Fall, the real-life band behind Old Gods of Asgard, celebrated the highly-awaited arrival of Summer with a series of new merchandise available at their official store!

The new wave brings an assortment of pieces perfect for keeping the heat at bay, including a branded water bottle, two tote bag designs, a vintage women's vest and a fan.

Water Bottle. Priced at 19,34€, the water bottle is set to be released on July 12th 2024 and is the most recent addition to the store. Constructed from aluminium, the 500ml canister bears the newly designed Poets of the Fall logo. Despite the logo, the bottle is safe for use in a dishwasher.

Tote Bags. Next up is the Morpho tote bag, which features the pinned butterfly/moth design used by the band at the start of their career. The design shows a repeated pattern ascending into the distance. There are two versions of the design; one with purple butterflies against a white background, and the other with multicolour butterflies against a black background. The bags are priced at 14,51€ each, measure 42x38cm and are made with 100% cotton. They will start to be sent out on July 5th.

Vest. The vintage black women's vest is a return of an old design. The vest showcases a distressed morpho with the original calligraphy-style Poets of the Fall logo. The item is made of 100% organic cotton and has been pre-shrunk, with recommendations to wash at 40 degrees and inside out to preserve the design. Priced at 29,03€, the item is available in S, M, L, and XL.

Fan. The final piece is a black fan, perfect for storing away in your bag for when things get a little too heated. The design features the new Poets of the Fall logo, with two morpho icons on either side. The fan is made from bamboo, with a length of 22cm and an open width of 38cm. 

A bit of information about the band: Although two of the band members were involved in Remedy's original Max Payne title, officially, the band's relationship started back in 2003 with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. For the game, Poets created their first song, Late Goodbye, based on a poem by Sam Lake, after a conversation between Marko and Sam about the formation of his new group.
Almost a decade later, the band returned for the studio's next game, Alan Wake, creating the custom songs, The Poet and the Muse and Children of the Elder God, under their alter-ego, Old Gods of Asgard. Their song War, from their album Twilight Theater, also made an appearance in the game. They returned again two years later for Alan Wake's American Nightmare, with the songs Balance Slays the Demon and The Happy Song (the latter also appearing in the album Temple of Thought). Around the same time, Can You Hear Me, created as an exclusive single to their Alchemy Vol 1 collection, also appeared in the studio's debut mobile game, Death Rally.

After Alan Wake, while they still worked alongside the studio, issues outside of both parties' control led to the absence of a unique track within Quantum Break. Although players can still hear elements in the reworked version of Labyrinth, heard in the Clearview album. It was only in 2019's Control that the band and studio were able to work once again, bringing Take Control to the table, used during the Control's memorable Ashtray Maze sequence, along with Ultraviolet's The Dark Disquiet making an appearance.

For Alan Wake 2, they returned with three unique songs custom-made for the adventures; Dark Ocean Summoning, Herald of Darkness, and Anger's Remorse. Weeks after the launch of the game, the Old Gods of Asgard debut album, Rebirth - The Greatest Hits was released, nicely coinciding with their performance on The Game Awards stage.
