We're Royal Bliss from Salt Lake City, UT. We have been a band for fifteen years now. We've put out 3 nationally released albums, numerous singles some of which have charted in the top 40 and have been touring the US constantly, playing our asses off!
We have been independent, signed to a major label, an indie label, and now, on our new record, we want YOU to be our label. We want to make a record that involves you, the fan, since you are the reason why we are still here.
We are looking to record at least a 10-14 song full length album. Tentative song titles include: Alive To See, Impossible, Dreamer, Welcome To The World, It Haunts Me, Rock You All Night Long & Cry Sister to name a few. We'll be recording the album in Salt Lake City, UT with Matt Winegar & Rob Daiker(both of whom did our "After The Chaos II" and our Capitol Records debut "Life In-Between"). We have great chemistry with these two guys and are very excited to work with them again. We are also planning on shooting a few music videos directed by the extremely talented Chris Le(he did Crazy).
There are many costs that go into making a record and releasing it. Like studio time, recording engineers, mixing and mastering to CD duplication and distribution. We have a radio campaign and a marketing company lined up and ready to go. They're just waiting for the call from us. We will be setting up some amazing tours and we'll do our best to make it to your city and we are hoping to hit some new cities, towns, states and even countries that we've never been too as well.
For everyone who becomes a backer of this project we will give you a behind the scenes link and password to check in and see the progress(videos, pics, updates, mixes etc) as we go.
It would make us so proud to hit our goal and be able to record an album, distribute it to the world and let them hear what Royal Bliss is all about! We want you to be apart of this experience with us. And we want to say that honestly, we could not have done this without you the fans.

Risks and challenges
We've had a few friends use crowdsourcing for art, music and/or film projects, and we hope we have learned something from them about potential pitfalls in launching a record this way. This campaign places us in charge of direct manufacture and distribution for our patrons, and means we need to set up a one-time system to make that happen smoothly and efficiently. Things can go wrong, though. We've seen storms delay shipping, posters where shipping ended up costing more than the cost of the item, lost packages, and a vinyl pressing pushed back 2 months because The Beatles were reissuing on 12" and the pressing plants couldn't keep up with demand. Seriously that happened!
We have a small team helping us put together our plans, and our intent is to make the Kickstarter versions of the physical record something worth holding in your hands. It won't be the same package everyone else can get on the road or at the store. How different...we don't know yet. The art process is just starting. But we know we don't want to disappoint anyone.
We've tried to create items and packages we know we can provide, but there's no telling what the schedule will be yet, aside from that we want to get stuff out as quickly as we can and at the highest possible quality. We will keep you informed about which offers will be ready when, and let you know the process and the reasons why.
As for the in-person items, we will fit these in with our tour schedule and do our best to give you an experience worthy of your generosity. We've never done this before, but we'll be creative in working with you to make sure you're satisfied.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
