Saving Abel Tours With Sick Puppies

Memphis based Southern boys Saving Abel, whose self-titled Virgin Records debut is set to be released on March 11th have announced a string of tour dates as opening band for label mates Sick Puppies beginning today at the Canyon in Las Vegas, NV (full schedule below). With four weeks until Saving Abel’s debut hits stores, the southern rockers first single “Addicted” is quickly becoming a staple at rock and alternative radio. The infectious, sexually charged anthem has been one of the most added new songs at both formats for the last three weeks and charted at active rock during its first official week of airplay.

“We’re excited to tour with the Sick Puppies and we’re ready to take on the world with the release of our album, 08’ is going to be a big year for Saving Abel,” said frontman Jared Weeks.

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. Influenced by southern rock, hard rock and mainstream alternative, they went through several musicians before arriving at their current lineup which includes guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon – the perfect blend of chemistry and musical ability. The band’s first break came in 2005, when they hooked up with Skidd Mills (12 Stones, Saliva, Submersed), who produced their 2005 self-titled EP.
