The Skinny: Saving Abel is an American rock band from Corinth, Mississippi, founded by members by Jared Weeks and Jason Null in 2004. The band’s name references the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Band member Jason Null came up with the 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, the Virgin Records debut produced by Mills, features mostly brand-new tunes, plus a few favorites from the indie EP, including the poignant, perfectly crafted “18 Days,” “Running From You,” and “Drowning Face Down.” The first single off the album, “Stupid Girl (Only In Hollywood)” was released to radio in April. This free acoustic download is a nice little teaser of what’s to expect on their hot new album.
