Saving Abel

Genre: Rock
Similar to: Hinder, Finger Eleven, Halestorm, Alter Bridge

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 Bartlet, 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 American in 2010.

Aterra Tale

Genre: Alternative Hard Rock
Similar to: The Used, Story of the Year, Black Sabbath

Aterra Tale is an original four-piece rock band based out of the southwestern Chicagoland suburbs. They have a diverse writing style and try to create something different and unique within each song. Their songs are meant to tell stories, some real and some fiction, and to paint pictures within the minds of their audience to bring those stories to life. This project started as nothing more than an outlet for a creative fix. The original intention was to be able to escape from other bands they play with and write some new music. The main idea was to be a “studio” recording group and to put out music at their will, but with the enthusiasm to play some shows here and there to support the tunes they put out. Aterra Tale just released their debut album, Of Fact and Fiction in 2012.
