ROCK BAND EVANS BLUE TEAMS WITH FORMULA 51 INK COMPANY
TO CREATE “EVANS BLUE” TATTOO INK COLOR
“Evans Blue” Ink and Evans Blue Album “Graveyard Of Empires” Due Out April 17th
LOS ANGELES, CA – MARCH 28, 2012 – Music and tattoos are intrinsically linked, so it was only a matter of time before a rock band received a tattoo ink named for them. The time is now, the ink company is Formula 51 Ink and the color is blue…Evans Blue.
Million-selling rock band Evans Blue - Dan Chandler (vocals), Parker Lauzon, (guitar), V (guitar) and Joe Pitter (bass) - broke onto the scene in 2006 with their #1 debut on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart with The Melody and the Energetic Nature of Volume, which spawned the Top 5 single “Cold (But I'm Still Here).” The band is set to unleash their forthcoming album Graveyard of Empires on April 17th, which boasts infectious anthems and indelible rock bravado. With Graveyard of Empires, the band delivers an irrefutable musical powerhouse. First single “This Time It’s Different” is Top 30 on the Rock charts, and climbing.
Founded in 2011, Formula 51 Ink was conceived by owners and respected tattoo artists Chris 51 and Joshua South, who were fueled by a mission to provide quality ink featuring an array of unique colors and premium needles at a fair price. Pride in their products and unquestionable integrity has made the company the hottest new tattoo ink maker in the U.S. Formula 51 Ink lives by the motto: Made by tattoo artists for tattoo artists.
Formula 51 Ink decided that formally uniting music and tattoo ink was long overdue, so they approached Evans Blue to join forces. Chris 51 explains, “We are huge fans of Evans Blue, so the band was an easy, obvious, perfect choice for us to contact with our ink idea. We’re thrilled they said ‘’yes’.” “This partnership will break new ground for both the music and tattoo industries,” adds South. “We are excited for Formula 51 to blaze this new path together with Evans Blue. No one rocks harder than Evans Blue, and no one cares as much about tattoo ink than us.”
Evans Blue singer Dan Chandler says, “We are excited to merge our name with Formula 51 Ink, and with the tattoo industry as a whole. I’m stoked to be the first person tattooed with our namesake color!”
