Virgin Records will release Saving Abel’s MISS AMERICA on June 8, 2010. The follow-up to the band’s breakthrough debut (“Addicted” anyone??) has reached critical mass via strong support at radio, adds at key video channels, widespread positioning at retail, and a world tour that has been underway for three months. The lead single “Stupid Girl (Only In Hollywood)” is flying up the rock charts, currently bulleted at 13, while the accompanying video is in rotation on MTV2. MISS AMERICA has been selected for the coveted Wal-Mart Sound Check Program, yielding 150 million impressions, and will be positioned at every retailer under the sun on street date. The video for “Stupid Girl (Only In Hollywood)” (above) is all over broadcast, cable and the Internet.
In front of the imminent release of MISS AMERICA, guitarist Scott Bartlett shares, “There is always anticipation when it comes to the release of a new record. You’re nervous, excited, and vulnerable. The key is to remember that this is rock and roll and those emotions don’t matter once the record is done. We roll the dice and the game begins. We couldn’t be more proud of the way it turned out. Now it’s up to the public. Get ready.” Guitarist Jason Null adds, “It’s been a great past 2 1/2 years and we’ve been very blessed with the success of the first record. With that said, we are really proud of this album. Every song on Miss America is special to us, and each has a purpose for being on there. I love this record and everything about it, our story down to the cover art.”
