Saving Abel Will Join Puddle Of Mudd On Summer Tour; Southern Rockers Hook Radio On 'Addicted'

May 28, 2008

Since the March release of the band's self-titled Skiddco/Virgin debut album, the featured track "Addicted" has zoomed to the No. 2 position nationally at active rock radio, also rising in the Top 10 at mainstream rock, and the Top 20 at the alternative rock format. The Saving Abel album, increasing in sales in each of its four weeks of release, has also charted at No. 2 in Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart of developing artists. They are the Clear Channel radio chain's New! rock band of the month.

Online, the Saving Abel page has amassed over 1.2 million song streams, increasing by thousands daily. A special unrated version of the "Addicted" video premiered on in March.  The video reached #5 on the iTunes video chart.  Buzz has also followed the band as frontman Jared Weeks has been reported to be dating Spike TV Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling star Angelina Love.

Saving Abel - named after the Biblical sibling of Cain - was formed by Jared Weeks and guitarist Jason Null in 2004 in their hometown of Corinth, Mississippi. Now based in Memphis, Tennessee, the band's complete lineup includes guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon. Combining influences of southern rock, hard rock and mainstream alternative music with an irresistible, rowdy work-hard, play-hard attitude, the band's first break came in 2005, when Skidd Mills (12 Stones, Saliva, Submersed) produced their self-titled EP.
