Saving Abel (currently composed of Jared Weeks, Jason Null, Scott Bartlett, Eric Taylor and Blake Dixon) was founded by Weeks and Null in 2004. The group self-released their first album in 2006, and they finally got their big break when they signed with Virgin Records almost a year later. Their first major studio album, a self-titled release, was produced in 2008. It reached #49 on the Billboard 200 (plus #4 on the U.S. hard rock charts and #5 on the U.S. rock charts) and achieved gold record status in the United States.

The group has continued its recording success, releasing an EP called “18 Days Tour” in 2009. The group has been busy touring as well, joining with Nickelback in the spring of 2009 and continuing to tour throughout the summer, co-headlining with Hinder, Papa Roach and Nickelback as well as performing on their own.
