Former frontman of the early augthts rock ’n’ roll institution The Strokes, Julian Casablancas formed The Voidz, previously known as Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, in 2013.

Sandbag’s negligence to identify certain items as sold out additionally led fans to place orders for merchandise that was no longer in stock. While shoppers that found themselves in such a situation were refunded, the refunds were slowly processed, exaggerating inconvenience.
The site’s stock has lately been noticeably depleted, with the vast majority of the items listed on the storefront categorized as sold out.
