Evans Blue is back at work.The first single “Sick Of It” is out. The self-titled album (due June 23rd) marks the debut of frontman Dan Chandler, a St. Louis singer who was selected after an extensive six-month nationwide search. According to Lauzon, “The transition has been virtually flawless. Chandler is a very easy guy to get along with, and he keeps a very open mind when it comes to songwriting, which is refreshing.”

With the addition of Chandler and the energy that he brings to the mix, Evans Blue is writing their best and most diverse collection of songs to date. The new material stays true to the core fans with signature dark and heavy riffs but is simultaneously uplifting. Chandler cites “confusing kindness for weakness,” “love and losing it,” and “finding comfort in difficult times” as some of the recurring themes on the album, but he notes that the beauty of music is that “we all seem to interpret songs or relate to them in our own personal way.”

Evans Blue debuted in 2006 with their first release, The Melody and the Energetic Nature of Volume, which spawned the Top 5 Active Rock single “Cold (But I'm Still Here).” Their second album, THE PURSUIT BEGINS WHEN THIS portrayal OF LIFE ENDS, was released in July 2007. Since then, the two albums have collectively sold over 650,000 units worldwide.

When asked what fans can expect from the new Evans Blue live show as the band hits the road again this summer, Lauzon simply replied, “Nothing less than 100% intensity!” Chandler elaborated, “Definitely expect to see ENERGY! I’ve always been a fan of seeing bands connect and have fun on stage. I think you just click with some people, and in this case it really feels like there’s a mutual respect for everyone in the group. It feels like I have known these guys longer than I have!” Evans Blue has evolved, and these five musicians are ready to take the band to a higher level
