"Watch Out For a HOT Chicago Group.."

"You might want to watch out for a hot, DIY Chicago group: the Blissters. Their sound (think new wave infused with heavy rock, complete with catchy boy-girl harmonies) is as diverse as the influences they bring to the table, which range from Spice Girls and Abba to The Beatles and The Pixies." - Windy City Times, 10/1/08 - Windy City Times


"Local power-pop quartet The Blissters make swirly, catchy pop of the radio-ready variety." - Time Out Chicago, 9/11/08 - Time Out Chicago

"Blockbuster Record"

"Right or Reason is a high energy tune with hit written all over it, and A-OK is a perfect follow up. I really dig the surprise keyboard interludes - they give these tunes a healthy 80s vibe that works perfectly. {The Blissters are} very promising and should excite any music biz hotshot worth his or her salt to give this band the resources they need to make a blockbuster record. If you like pop punk with a new wave 80s flavor, check out The Blissters." - Bill's Music Forum, 9/4/08 - Bill's Music Forum

"[Erica C] Very Appealing.."

"Singer and guitarist Erica C. has a very appealing rough-and-ready-yet-tuneful delivery that helps to give the tracks some extra edge for a nice balance of pop and rock." - The Examiner, 9/3/08 - The Examiner

"The Blissters Lodge In Your Brain"

"The Blissters' [music] immediately lodges in your brain and you can't get rid of it." - Mark W., The Rock and Roll Report, Canada, 8/26/08
- The Rock and Roll Report

"The Blissters - Radio and MTV.."

“I can easily hear [I Heart New Wave] being played on the radio and MTV. There are a lot of bands in the oversaturated pop rock genre and I truly believe this is one of the better ones.” - Chicago’s Rock Magazine, 12/19/06 - Chicago's Rock Magazine

Music Video for "Is It Monday" -



The Blissters were formed in the Summer of '04 when former bandmates Arnold and Erica (ex The Envoys) reunited to record an EP for Arnold's project Combination F. The recording went super swell, so the kids decided to stick together and form a brand new band. Scott (ex of NYC's The Letdowns) joined up after a brief drummer search and hot new bassist Johnny D completes the group, and all is well with the world. The Blissters have been a staple in the Chicago music scene, performing at bars and nightclubs, since 2004. They performed at Chicago's Taste of Lincoln in Summer of 07, which attracts 50,000+ attendees, played the International Pop Overthrow Festival for the third straight year, and won the WXRT/Starbucks competition in the Midwest with the fierce number "Just Like You". They have received significant airplay on WXRT and WLUW, and are currently recording songs for another album. The Blissters music soothes the soul but shakes the naughty areas, combining melodic harmonies, upbeat tunes, and high energy live performances. With Erica's sexy voice, Arnold's catchy riffs, Johnny's tight bass lines, and Scotties spastic drumfills, The Blissters want you to sing-a-long and enjoy the music. Hope you do!
