Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Royal Bliss has been making their mark for years with a consistent work ethic of writing, recording, and touring that have helped build the success of the band. Their wide variety of influences from Led Zeppelin to Johnny Cash mold the sound that is uniquely theirs and cannot be denied. Their music speaks to the common man, tells a story and rocks out with a good party crowd, all the while being delivered by the inimitable deep and raspy voice of front man, Neal Middleton.
Royal Bliss began as a rock band achieving early success with their music on several rock radio stations. In 2009 their Capitol Records debut Life In-Between charted on the Billboard Top 200 and was #1 in Billboard Heatseekers. In 2012, the independently released Waiting Out The Storm reached #9 on the iTunes Rock Chart and hit #2 in Billboard Heatseekers. In 2014, Chasing The Sun was recorded and released again on their own label, Air Castle Records, with distribution through Universal (INgrooves) Music Group. On the Chasing The Sun album the alternative roots of the band shined on the album’s single “Cry Sister” that climbed the Active Rock chart to (#31) and was Royal Bliss’ 6th Single to crack the top 50 on Active Rock radio. After a brief hiatus from the Rock World, Royal Bliss came back in 2018 with a vengeance. They released “Devil with Angel Eyes” which made it to Top 50 on Mediabase and BDS charts and headlined a tour across the United States. 2019 looks to be a big year for Royal Bliss as their first single, “Hard and Loud,” charted in the top 40 Active Rock Chart, the second single “Pain” broke Top 30 on all charts, and the current single “Paranoid,” has already broke Top 25 at Mediabase and Billboard, and Top 20 at BDS Indicator and the Foundations Chart. Royal Bliss also released a new self-titled album ROYAL BLISS in April 2019.
Royal Bliss has headlined many tours, toured with acts in the Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative genres, and have grown into seasoned and dynamic live performers with a solid fan base across the country. “We have always done our own thing by singing songs about things that are real and that are happening to us in the current state of the world” Says Middleton.
Royal Bliss has a successful History at Rock Radio. They are currently on their 9th Charting single at the format. We planned to release 2 singles prior to the CD release to ramp up its launch. The 1st single, “Devil With Angel Eyes” was Royal Bliss’ introduction back into the Rock World. It was a huge success, as it charted, and the video has almost 600K views – https://youtu.be/vjzF8_Kn9lw. Next, we released the 2nd single “Hard and Loud” to Active Rock. “Hard and Loud” continued to bring Royal Bliss back to Rock Radio by breaking Top 40 on Mediabase and BDS Rock Charts. The 3rd single “Pain” was recently released to Rock Radio to coincide with the release of the new album ROYAL BLISS. “Pain” quickly began climbing the radio charts and has already broke Top 30 on Mediabase, BDS Indicator charts.
