The $18 shirt features the band's name and a red rose on the front with the words "I hop you find your way," with the back offering some sobering statistics on the rate of domestic violence in the U.S. "On average in the United States, 24 people per minute are victims of physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner. More than 12 million women and men over the course of a year." 

According to the National Gun Violence Memorial page, Tomerlin, 36, was the victim of an Oct. 14, 2018, murder-suicide in Louisville, Kentucky committed by her boyfriend. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
