Since their formation, Royal Bliss has been a powerful force in rock music. After thriving as an independent band, signing with Capitol Records, relentless touring, starting an exciting new partnership with Kartel, and seeing two of their latest singles hit the Top 20 Active Rock charts, the band known for persevering & surviving is more than ready for wherever this next chapter will take them.
After the abrupt shock the pandemic brought for the self-confessed “road warriors”, Royal Bliss spent the past year reflecting on the last few decades together as a band and how, despite all of the odds stacked against them, they survived. They also recorded a new album aptly titled, SURVIVAL.
After they released their Capitol Records debut record “Life In-Between,” there isn’t much Royal Bliss hasn’t already accomplished —from signing with a major label in 2007, garnering over 100 million streams and 300,000+ monthly listeners on Spotify, charting on the Billboard Top 20(twice), hitting #1 in Billboard Heatseekers, touring with the likes of Kid Rock, Chevelle to Lynyrd Skynyrd, and having 10 singles break the top 50 on Active Rock radio. A band that prides themselves on their storytelling and ability to deftly blend classic rock with modern rock elements, Royal Bliss is a one-of-a-kind rock band and has the feverish fan following to prove it.
Royal Bliss has now released 6 full-length studio albums —“After The Chaos II(2006),” the Capitol Records debut “Life In Between(2009),” “Waiting Out The Storm(2012),” “Chasing The Sun(2014),” 2019’s self-titled record “Royal Bliss,” and now we see their latest release “Survival(2023),” put out on their own label Air Castle Records. But even with all of those achievements, the band’s biggest career highlight can be described in one word: Surviving. “Surviving the last couple years was a highlight in and of itself” Neal laughs, touching on the band’s commitment to persevering for the sake of their music.
