Saving Abel’s sophomore release 'Miss America' will hit stores on June 8th, and lead singer Jared Weeks recently explained why the band chose Miss America as their album title: "Miss America is actually a song on the album that Saving Abel co-wrote with producer Marty Fredrickson. Although we didn't believe we would release it as a single, we felt that we need to bring more attention to the song and its message. Having just returned from our USO tours in Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar, we all seemed to be on the same page when it came to naming the album. Just being out there with those men and women who do so much for us and the country we live in, we really wanted to give them something back.” During Saving Abel’s week-long USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour of the Persian Gulf, the band visited eight military bases, performing a total of seven concerts for the troops.
Fans who can’t wait for new music from Saving Abel are in luck. The lead single from 'Miss America', "Stupid Girl (Only in Hollywood)," will be available digitally on April 8th and will impact rock radio on April 19th.
