Rock quintet Saving Abel will be bringing their brand of hard, southern rock to the concert trail this summer, first on a 23-city headlining club tour May 28 – July 4. They will then join up with Puddle of Mudd for a two-month series of tour dates beginning July 5 in Biloxi, MS and ending up August 23 in Raleigh, NC.

Saving Abel was formed by Jared Weeks and guitarist Jason Null in 2004 in their hometown of Corinth, MS. Now based in Memphis, TN, the band’s complete lineup includes guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon. They are touring in support of their self-titled Skiddco/Virgin debut album, released in March. The album is a follow up to their 2005 self-titled EP.

The featured track from the new album, entitled “Addicted,” has rocketed to the No. 2 position nationally at active rock radio, also rising to the Top 10 at mainstream rock, and the Top 20 at the alternative rock format. The album has charted at No. 2 in Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart of developing artists and is Clear Channel radio’s featured rock band of the month.
