                      DROPS MARCH 11

(New York, NY – January 16th, 2008) - In preparation for the March 11 release of
their self-titled major label debut from Virgin Records, southern rockers Saving
Abel will hit the road with Days of The New. The tour launches January 17 in
Charlotte, North Carolina and hits eight cities before wrapping up January 30 in
Atlanta (full schedule below).

Saving Abel will be touring behind their gangbuster single “Addicted,” which
recently received Top New Artist kudos from Clear Channel Radio. The band
wrote the infectious, sexually charged anthem for their 2006 self-released CD,
but it didn‟t stay underground for long; in no time, radio stations across the
country embraced the undeniable, hook-laden tune.

Upon hearing the addictive track, Virgin Records felt so confident in Saving Abel
that they snatched them up and sent them into the studio with accomplished
producer Skidd Mills, who has previously worked with artists including 12 Stones,
Saliva, and Submersed. In no time, the band – singer Jared Weeks, guitarists
Jason Null and Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon – had
recorded their major label debut, which includes a newly recorded version of
“Addicted,” as well as the raunchy, hard-rockin‟ tour tale “New Tattoo” and the
aching, harmonious “She Got Over Me.”

While “Addicted” has been the shot in the arm that catapulted Saving Abel into
the mainstream, the band wrote the track back in the early days when singer
Jared Weeks was still working at the local hospital drawing blood. “I‟d have to be
there at 4:30 in the morning,” he says. “I‟d be walking around the hospital,
singing „Addicted‟ in my head, writing down lyrics on patients‟ napkins and doctor
script pads.”

Weeks and Null formed Saving Abel – named after the Biblical sibling of Cain –
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 – the perfect blend of chemistry and musical
ability. The band‟s first break came in 2005, when they hooked up with Mills, who
produced their self-titled EP.
Since then, the band‟s ascent has been rapid, and things are about to get
meteoric. Saving Abel plan to spend much of 2008 on the road supporting their
album and more singles, videos and promotional appearances will surely follow.
