Saving Abel is a Corinth, Mississippi based American rock music group. The band was created in 2004 by Jared Weeks (lead vocals) and Jason Null (lead guitar, backing vocals). Other band members include Scott Bartlett (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Eric Taylor(bass guitar, backing vocals) and Blake Dixon (drums).
The band gets its name from the ancient biblical story of Cain and Abel about a brother who killed his own brother. Band member Jason Null came up with the band's name saying "I Googled the story of Cain and Abel and found a line about 'there was no saving Abel,' which just jumped out at me."
Saving Abel released their self-titled, major label debut album on March 11, 2008. The lead song "Addicted," rose to #2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs charts, and the CD peaked at #49 on the Billboard 200 and achieved Gold certification. The band released its 18 Days Tour EP on April 7, 2009, and its second CD "Miss America" was released on June 8, 2010. A third Saving Abel is scheduled to come out in the middle of 2011.
