NEWS: Faris Badwan Designs Basges For Record Store Day 2012

In association with the Music Matters campaign, The Horrors’ frontman Faris Badwan has designed a limited edition range of badges exclusively for Record Store Day 2012. A run of 2012 badges will be distributed throughout the 192 record stores taking part in the annual event on 21st April.

Faris explains why he wanted to get involved in Record Store Day this year:
“I’ve discovered so much music through independent record shops, particularly Rough Trade. It’s not the same experience buying records on the internet. I’ve always thought Record Store Day was such a great idea, limited 7″s from musicians who share a love of making actual records”.

This latest limited edition Music Matters badge follows a range of exclusive BRIT Awards 2012 Music Matters badges, distributed to all guests at this year’s event and created by legendary pop artist and BRIT award designer Sir Peter Blake.

The Horrors’ third album ‘Skying’, released in 2011, gained universal critical acclaim upon it’s release, and recently won NME’s ‘Album Of The Year Award’; The band are currently on a tour of the US before heading back across the pond for a seven date UK headline tour in May.
