This awesome 80s band tee is for the new wave band Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark. The shirt commemorates their 1985 Crush Tour. The tour promoted the group's sixth studio album Crush. It was the first of two albums which were produced by Stephen Hague who also worked with Pet Shop Boys, New order, and Peter Gabriel. The album helped to take the group's sound into a more commercial direction and it was accompanied by the release of the long form video Crush-The Movie, which showed interviews with the band and performances of songs from the album. The album included the singles "So in love", "Secret", and "La Femme Accident".
The same year as the tour, OMD was contacted to write a song for the John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink. The group recorded "Goddess of Love" but after test audiences responded negatively to the song it was replaced with "If You Leave" which went on to become a top 5 hit for the group.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is a small repair on the front, see pics.
