Mudvayne Unveils Black Light Album Artwork For New Record; Designed Exclusively By Paul Booth
MUDVAYNE have outdone themselves once again with the mind-blowing packaging for the new album. The new album is revolutionizing album artwork design, as this is the first album to ever use black light reactive ink. Every bit of art and text in the packaging of the record will be printed on ink that can only be seen with a black light.
MUDVAYNE’s self-titled album due out on December 22. The artwork was created exclusively by the Paul Booth. The world renowned tattoo artist had the following to say about the concept and artwork:
“This project has been absolutely killer to work on! The whole black light concept was totally experimental and quite the challenge, so of course, as an artist, I was drawn to it like a moth to a bugzapper. I am happy to see bands focusing more energy on their album art… something I thought the internet had killed. Hailz to MUDVAYNE and everyone at the label for going the extra mile!”
