Robert Bloomfield and Matthew Hasting of the band MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE are proud to announce the launch of their very own clothing company, VICIOUS WORLD.

“We were very picky about the designs we wanted,” comments Matthew Hasting.  “We want to make people think. Question everything around you. The world we live in is full of corruption. Whether you want to be or not, we are all apart of this vicious world.”

VICIOUS WORLD started with both founders wanting another avenue of creative expression and also being upset with how shirts never fitted them correctly. As a result, you have perfectly fitted garments with killer designs and slogans such as “It’s A Vicious World After All,” and “’Til Death Do We Art.”

Creating a new and refreshing design that caters to youth culture is something that both Robert Bloomfield and Matthew Hasting aspire to. VICIOUS WORLD will be manufacturing a limited edition line of new shirts and the full line can be viewed here.
