A True Hollywood Tale About ROYAL BLISS

"I saw them live twice this week (somewhat acoustic at the Capitol Studios & totally plugged in opening for Candlebox). THEY ROCK!!!!" said Jacki from EMI. I mean honestly a record label person getting this excited about a new release. WOW!

She continued...
"They've been touring since the release came out and are currently on tour with Candlebox. Followed by tour dates with Buckcherry/Chevelle including the Rock on the Range festival."

"Key tracks to check out: "We Did Nothing Wrong", "Save Me", "I Was Drunk", "Devils & Angels". You can review them by clicking here http://www.royalbliss.com/ and then clicking on the widget. "

Okay, okay so then I checked out the video.


...and loved it.

Then the record label lad-de-da sorta stuff....

They delivered the following results the first week out the box (1/13 street):
#184 on Billboard Comprehensive Albums
#151 on The Billboard 200 chart
#4 on Top Heat Seekers chart
#2 on Taste Makers chart
#1 on Top Heat Seekers chart (Mountain region)

But wait...this isnt part of the normal rhetoric! She went on to tell me...well, just keep reading.
"Besides being a rockin' band, these guys are actually REALLY cool and I would love to see them succeed. Let's help make that happen!"

Okay, by now I already love the song, the video and now I want to meet them, too! No matter what, I can dig any label chick that gives a rat's arse about thier bands and beyond that...she has good taste.

So here's the real deal.
