Saving Abel Embarking on Tour in Support of Miss America
Thu, 20 May 2010 09:39:49
June will be a banner month for Saving Abel, as the band will release Miss America on June 8. The album follows up to the band's breakthrough debut. In an official statement, guitarist Scott Bartlett said, "There is always anticipation when it comes to the release of a new record. You're nervous, excited, and vulnerable. The key is to remember that this is rock 'n' roll and those emotions don't matter once the record is done. We roll the dice and the game begins. We couldn't be more proud of the way it turned out. Now it's up to the public. Get ready." I'm ready, so bring it, Saving Abel.
The quintet continues their current world tour which has, over the past several months, touched down in India, Qatar, Kuwait, and Iraq (via a USO / Armed Forces Entertainment tour of the Persian Gulf), extensively across the U.S., and in the middle of the Pacific Ocean aboard the USS Carl Vinson as the vessel returned from Haiti. Previously announced appearances on the current run include Erie, PA (5/19), Poughkeepsie, NY (5/20), Hartford, CT (5/21), Rocklahoma (5/28), El Paso, TX (Balloonfest 5/29), Lafayette, LA (6/05), Boloxi, MS (6/25), and Springfield, MO (6/27). On June 30 in Kansas City, MO, headliner Saving Abel, will hit the road with direct support act We Are The Fallen, and openers American Bang and Taddy Porter.
