Badass Bands and their Pink Vinyl Records

Pink vinyl records look as sweet as candy that’s why it’s interesting that a lot of rock bands choose them for their albums… and they look so cool!

If you’re a metal/punk/rock band, you’re likely “locked” in the colors black, red and white for your website, merch, CD packaging, and uhmmm… everything else. That’s the stereotype. But if you want to become more badass than you already are, try something totally unexpected. Why don’t you try a girly color like pink! Apparently, this is not a very new idea and lots of artists (even the hardcore ones) have released pink Vinyl LPs and 7’s. And they all look good! Again, we do vinyl pressing so hit us up if you need anything.
