The band recently shot a music video for the title track in their hometown of Corinth, Mississippi. In this unique example of total community participation, both the town and band came together to make this video.
They stood together to make a statement against the bullying epidemic in America and hope the video serves as a call for others to do the same. Still shots from the shoot can be seen above. Click HERE to watch the video for “Bringing Down The Giant”!
The band will release its brand new record “Bringing Down The Giant” tomorrow, July 17th, 2012.
“I’m so excited and proud to announce that we have signed to eOne. Thanks to them the world will get a chance to hear this amazing collection of songs,” says frontman Jared Weeks. “Bringing Down The Giant” is the bands follow up release to “Miss America,” released in 2010. The band has been hard at work since then and want fans to know they are back. Weeks continues, “We have taken the last year to write and record the best songs of our career.”
Saving Abel combined meat and potatoes rock with their eponymous Gold-selling 2008 debut, which topped the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The record spawned the platinum single “Addicted” and the followup barn-burners, “Drowning (Face Down)” and the emotional “18 Days.” Their second album, “Miss America,” topped the Hard Rock chart and imprinted the hearts and minds of radio listeners with the title cut, “Stupid Girl (Only in Hollywood)” and another Top 10 single, “The Sex is Good.”
After blazing their own path with two full lengths, six top ten singles with two of them reaching number one, SAVING ABEL is ready to break new ground with “Bringing Down The Giant.”
One of the greatest hard rock musicians to ever grace the keyboard passed away today. Former Deep Purple keyboardist suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was 71 years old.
We will never forget his awesome playing with Deep Purple and Whitesnake. Our condolences go out to Jon’s family, friends and former band mates.

Its hard to believe that its nearly been three years since BONAFIDE´s last full length offering “Something’s Dripping” was first released
Above all, BONAFIDE has been building an ever growing audience all over Europe by constant touring. 2 long European tours, covering 12 countries, headlining and as support. Add to this, the countless festival appearances and week long tours of Spain and the UK and it can be easily seen, that these boys are Rock n Roll Road Rats on the up.. Quite simply, BONAFIDE is a band that knows, that success and longevity can only be achieved by hard work, which inevitably means non stop touring and keeping it Live.
The third single from that second album was the song “Fill your head with Rock”. A single that actually became an EP of unreleased songs and videos that raced to number 1 in the Swedish Mid-price chart and gave BONAFIDE a spot among the top songs of 2011 on Classic Rock Magazine’s annual list! A successful UK tour followed, culminating in a show at Islington O2 Academy in London.
2012 marks the year of “ULTIMATE REBEL”. An album packed with loud, energetic yet melodic hard rock, firmly rooted in heavy electric blues and steaming hot old school r´n´b.
The first single “Doing the Pretty” has already been A listed and on continued heavy rotation on several European radio stations The main album release will be supported by a second single / video, which will be released prior to the album, early August 2012.
This hotly tipped monster of an album, was recorded during two hectic weeks in engineer Conny Wall´s Gig Studio’s in Stockholm in February, and was produced by band front man and main songwriter Pontus Snibb.
This Summer,.. BONAFIDE have just played to a record breaking audience of over 10K on Sweden Rock Festival’s Zeppelin stage, and will continue to play festivals and clubs, doing their outstanding live shows in both Scandinavia and the UK before heading out on yet another European tour this fall.
“ULTIMATE REBEL” is out August 15 2012. For full details go to www.offyerrocka.com

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release today of the ECLIPSE digital single “Bleed and Scream” taken from the forthcoming album with the same name to be released on August 24th in Europe and August 28th in North America.
The new single shows the vigorous new direction for the Swedish combo with hard hitting guitar riffs and monster hooklines. The single can be downloaded via iTunes and all other fine digital shops all over the world.
