About The Challenge
Flatfoot 56 is a Celtic punk band of brothers and friends from Chicago. Attend one of their shows or listen to one of their albums, and you’re guaranteed a high-energy mix of vocals, bagpipes, mosh-pitting, maybe a broken rib or two... you know, the kind of music you and your parents can really bond over!
To get ready for the release of the next album 'Toil' in July, your challenge is to channel the music of Flatfoot 56 and design a t-shirt to be worn by both die-hard fans and new fans to their music. So check out their past three albums for inspiration or download their new single from their upcoming album, and get started!
Your design should not include logos.

Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon the world for over 10 years now. Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first three label-backed records, 2006’s "Knuckles Up," 2007’s "Jungle of the Midwest Sea" and 2009's "Black Thorn." The band's new album, "Toil," will be released in July 2012 by Paper + Plastick in the United States, Stomp Records in Canada, and People Like You Records in Europe.
