DEBUT CAREER TO DATE FOR MISSISSIPPI ROCKERS
 Follow-up to gold-certified debut enters chart at number 24

New York, NY — Virgin Records Saving Abel have achieved another milestone in their notable career.  The quintet’s follow up to their gold-certified self-titled debut MISS AMERICA has entered the Billboard album chart at 24.  This is the highest position the band has held with any album on the Top 200.  Released June 8, 2010, MISS AMERICA and the band’s presence in the marketplace, has been delivered a level of critical mass that documents the arrival of Saving Abel.  The lead single “Stupid Girl (Only In Hollywood)” is flying up the rock charts, currently bulleted at 12, while the accompanying video is in rotation on MTV2.  Last week the band announced plans for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) on August 2.
 
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.  Following appearances in Biloxi on June 25 and Springfield, MO on June 27, a two-month run will begin the 30th in Kansas City, MO, when headliner Saving Abel will hit the road with direct support act We Are The Fallen, and openers American Bang and Taddy Porter.  The itinerary includes appearances in:
