Stay Up to date with VRATIM
We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these times.
As we all do our best to practice social distancing and staying home, we know that sometimes it's still necessary to go out for essential items like food...and toilet paper. We also know it's been getting more difficult to find masks to wear when going out for essential items.
We were able to purchase some extra masks and will be giving away a mask with each order along with our normal stickers and coupons.
We know it isn't much, but hopefully it comes in handy.
Also, if you don't need the mask, we encourage you to give it to someone else that might need one!
Here's to working together so we can all get back to touring, going to shows, and being around friends!

P.S. If you desperately need a mask, please send us a message/email and we'll help as best we can.

I know this is probably the millionth message you've read like this, so I'll try to make it a little different by offering some insight into our operations and bringing attention to the effects of all that has been happening.
First and foremost we're still conducting business like normal...mostly:
Personally, I have been practicing additional quarantining as my band was recently on tour in Japan. The tour went very well (and I could go on forever about it) but, we had to leave Japan earlier than expected as the situation changed.
While the daily operations at VRATIM have been mostly unaffected (although we do find ourselves with some extra free time) many of our endorsed artists and industry friends are not in the same position. Most, if not all, tours over the next few months have been postponed or outright cancelled. This includes everything from smaller tours to major, big-name tours. This not only affects the bands/artists, but also the promoters, tour managers, venues, associated venue staff, and even photographers, graphic designers, and recording studios.
During this difficult time, more than ever, it is important to support your favorite artists and venues. Even if you cannot contribute financially, streaming music, sharing your favorite local venue’s GoFundMe, and other simple things like that can be beneficial to those affected.
Hopefully we will all be back at shows and enjoying the company of friends soon.
Please take care of yourself and loved ones.
Stay healthy and stay safe!
