Saving Abel, ‘Blood Stained Revolution’ – Exclusive Album Stream
The next era of Saving Abel is officially upon us. Though the band's 'Blood Stained Revolution' album doesn't arrive until next Tuesday (Nov. 11), the group is exclusively streaming the disc in advance here at Loudwire.
Plus, they've also launched a digital pre-release via Rokbiz in which the complete album is available for $5.00 with 10 percent of the gross proceeds going to military veterans organizations. All purchases from now through midnight on Nov. 10 will aid the charitable organizations who work on behalf of those who've served. Check out the pre-sale here.
Earlier this year, the band debuted the lead single and title track right here at Loudwire. You can check out the remainder of the album in the player provided below.
This marks the band's first release with new members Scotty Austin on vocals and Steven Pulley behind the drum kit. But the bond with the new members has grown quickly as the band has come together as a cohesive unit while touring and recording over the past year.
Saving Abel guitarist Scott Bartlett tells Loudwire, "We had no idea what to expect when we hit the studio. Just because everyone can write and play their asses off doesn't always translate to good writing and collaboration. There was no formula. Just a bunch of guys bouncing ideas off each other and it was incredibly refreshing. There's something to be said for writing from a pure place instead of banging your head against the wall trying to write a "hit."
Bartlett went on to add of the album title, "There don't seem to be any true leaders or positive role models out there. Everyone just complains about their problems without seeking for real solutions. 'Blood Stained Revolution' is symbolism for all of us starting with a clean slate. There's no propaganda behind it … it's an idea that's enticing and we just hope it makes people think and try to take action to better themselves instead of complaining."
As for Saving Abel's support of the military, that just continues a long-standing tradition the band have kept while playing many a show for military personnel. When it came time to release the new album, it made perfect sense for the band to offer up the disc on Veterans' Day. You can catch the band on tour for the remainder of 2014 supporting the disc. Dates can be found below the album stream.
