MISSOULA, Mont.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vault Comics, the critically acclaimed comics publisher and entertainment company, today announces its partnership with Skullcandy, the Park City, Utah-based lifestyle audio company.
Skullcandy will exclusively supply headphones and other audio accessories to accompany special editions of Vault’s Headshell graphic novel line. These limited-edition headphones will incorporate design elements from the Headshell graphic novels and will only be available with purchase of a Headshell graphic novel.
In late 2022, Vault announced Headshell, a new line of graphic novels from iconic recording artists, including Metallica, Def Leppard, The Beach Boys, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Redman, and more. Headshell graphic novels present original stories inspired by artists’ careers and music, giving fans an all-new way to connect with the artists and music they love. Together, Headshell artists have sold many hundreds of millions of albums, generated billions of streams and views, and have hundreds of millions of followers across social media platforms.
“Skullcandy has always been an innovator in the space of audio culture and our team at Vault is excited to work with them on this,” said Vault CEO Damian Wassel. “As we work on our Headshell graphic novels, our overriding focus is creating meaningful connections between our partner artists and their fans, and this headphone partnership adds another dimension to how our readers can connect with the musicians they love, quite literally giving them a new way to listen to their favorites.”
“When we had the opportunity to talk with the team at Vault, and to learn about what they’re building with Headshell, we knew we wanted to work together immediately,” said Brian Garofalow, CEO of Skullcandy. “The roster of artists Vault has assembled for their Headshell lineup is unrivaled, and Skullcandy is excited to join forces with Vault to deliver unique, collectible, premium headphones for Headshell readers.”
The Headshell X Skullcandy partnership will kick off with a special, limited-edition headphone only available with purchase of the special limited-edition copies of Dying Inside, the upcoming graphic novel from writer Hannah Klein, artist Lisa Sterle, and Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz.
