The Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, Every Time I Die and many more bands have launched their own Christmas jumpers for 2017.

August Burns Red, Cro Mags, Sikth, Bury Your Dead, Stick To Your Guns and Tesseract have also unveiled their own sweaters on Merch Limited as part of the website’s festive range.

Festive jumpers from Architects and Thy Art Is Murder are also available on Impericon, while Iron Maiden launched a festive scarf and jumper through alternative fashion brand Middle Of Beyond earlier this month.

Meanwhile, The Dillinger Escape Plan recently reported that they plan to release leftover material from their Dissociation sessions after they split following tour next year.

Vocalist Ben Weinman said they were bowing out on their own terms, adding: “Going in to an album that we feel really proud of and doing an entire touring cycle knowing that this would be the end was scary.

“But it sounded so much more exciting and meaningful than anything we had done over the past 20 years. How can you not follow that instinct once you realise that?”
