THE STORY of “Came for Blood” – As fate would have it, we recorded this song right before the pandemic hit. It was Jan 2020 and the band flew to LA to record some new songs with our producer Erik Ron (Godsmack, Panic at the Disco). The game plan was to release this first single and tour non-stop as usual. Fast forward the song came out on March 5th followed by the music video with an MMA /Fight Club Vibe. “Came for Blood” is about the underdog getting last licks and winning. It hits home more than we knew after the rest of 2020 ran it’s course.
Ron Williams aka RONZWORLD gained popularity among Rock fans and musicians in 2015 by partnering with The Music Experience to deliver custom/hand painted “Official Festival Guitars”to the Danny Wimmer Presents portfolio of music festivals (Welcome to Rockville, Epicenter, Sonic Temple, Bourbon & Beyond, HomeTowm Rising, Louder Than Life and Aftershock). Blameshift was fortunate enough to get Ron on board as they launched a contest around their new single, “Came for Blood.” The band’s good friends at PRS Guitars supplied the canvas and Ron got to work.
