Local Releases: Royally Ruining The Blissful Valley

Brand new releases from Royal Bliss, Vincent Draper, Mythic Valley and more.


This weekend is full of events: Gaming Con, Pride, 48 Hour Film, etc. But there are still some awesome release shows to check out if you're getting burned out on the festivals. We've got two shows this weekend and a third later next week, but first, we have new digital albums for you to check out below.

Grant Platt - Vicissitudes

Housewarming PartyBetween Two Mountains
Ricky Paramore - Eroding (EP)
Soleil et Lune - Orchid
CERCI - Archetypical (EP)


The first of two shows on Saturday features Royal Bliss. Probably one of the most well-known bands in the state, they've had a pretty good run as a rock band being able to tour and still call Utah their home. The rock sound has shifted more towards southern and country, which is the primary focus of their latest album, The Truth. (read our feature here). The group will be throwing an all-ages release show at The Royal (the club they actually own) at 3 p.m. with Candy's Riverhouse, Wayne Hoskins Band, and the School Of Rock, all on an outdoor stage.  Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of show.


The other show happening on Saturday comes to us from Vincent Draper. But I won't need to say much here because I already wrote him up for this week's issue of City Weekly! Go read that article, and then join him at The State Room as he releases his latest album Ruiner with Dan Fletcher opening.


The final release show over the next week happens on June 9, as we see the debut EP from Mythic Valley. This is a rock duo from SLC comprising Tommy Gunn and Tony Aman, who have been playing around the Wasatch Front for a little over a year now with an Americana-type sound. They'll be releasing their debut EP, Full Moon, this Thursday with Kimber Packer and Brian Bingham playing their show at Muse Music. Tickets are just $6 and the show starts at 8 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local!
