Saving Abel

Formed in 2004 by vocalist Jared Weeks and guitarist Jason Null, Saving Abel combine riff-heavy hard rock with sexually charged lyrics and Southern rock influences. The quintet took root in Corinth, MS, where Weeks and Null cut their teeth in different bands before merging their songwriting talents. In early 2005, the duo attracted attention from producer Skidd Mills, who invited Weeks and Null to record in his Memphis studio. Juggling day jobs and regional gigs, the two began driving back and forth between Corinth and Memphis, sporadically recording their self-titled EP with Mills while putting together a full lineup consisting of guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor, and drummer Blake Dixon.

Within a year, the EP had earned Saving Abel a contract with Virgin Records, and Mills returned to produce the group's full-length debut. Combining new material with the EP's best songs, the self-titled album was issued in March 2008. It went gold within a year, with the lead single "Addicted" cracking the Top 40 and nearly topping the modern rock charts. While touring the country in support of the album, Saving Abel began playing new material, most of which appeared on the sophomore album Miss America in 2010.

Saving Abel is an American rock band formed by Jared Weeks and Jason Null in 2004.
The band's name references the biblical story of Cain and Abel. 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.”
Despite the name and its origin, they're not a Christian band.
Saving Abel released their self-titled, major label debut album on March 11, 2008. The album features the single "Addicted" which peaked at #2 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart.
On February 7, 2009, Null and another employee of the band were arraigned on charges of forced oral copulation and forced oral copulation on a minor. Police say that they forced a 17-year-old girl to perform a sex act following a concert in Oakland. The band posted bail for Null but left their guitar technician in jail despite his bail being lower. Both men pleaded not guilty. All charges against both men were dropped on February 11, 2009 after a video recording contradicted the girl's statements.
