The rock band DIRK. has released a new song called ‘Komrad shoes’. When we heard this, we knew we had to do something more with it. In collaboration with them we released a Limited Edition sneaker: ‘The DIRKS. By Komrads’. Moreover, it was immediately clear to us that we wanted to share our joy about the song and we see this as the perfect opportunity to support the live event sector. After all, it’s a sector that’s close to our hearts, and it’s having a hard time these days.
The live music industry needs help
The live music sector is unplugged. It has been suffering from the corona virus for some time now and can use support from every angle. That’s why we donate the proceeds of the unique DIRKS. trainers with a lot of love to Live2020 #UnitedForLiveMusic. This organisation offers support to everyone who makes live music possible (from backliners to stagehands, from musicians to booking agents, from DJs to stage builders, from sound engineers to roadies). By supporting them, we hope to help build a brighter musical future!
Komrads loves DIRK.
Already in 2016 they conquered the bronze plaque at Humo’s Rock Rally. Anno 2020 DIRK. is the most popular – and most played – indie act in Belgium. The male quartet have been fans of Komrads for a long time and now they translate this enthusiasm into a unique song: ‘Komrad shoes’.
