Saving Abel Replace Frontman Jared Weeks

Saving Abel frontman Jared Weeks has announced that he has left the group to pursue a solo career and that the band have already selected Trash the Brand frontman Scott Austin to replace him.

Here is what Weeks had to say, "A lil over 10 years ago Jason Null and myself (Jared Weeks) started the band Saving Abel, and little did I know how much our lives would change for the better. It's been so amazing over the past decade, to meet so many fans, tour with so many of my favorite and amazing bands, and travel all over the world, to places I couldn't never imagine myself going. It really has been one hell of a ride for me. I've had such a great time experiencing all that we have accomplished with my brothers in SA: Scotty B. Eric T., Mikey M. & Jason N. these fellas have been a family to me on the road and part of my family at home, but most importantly all our FANS that have been there and supported us through thick and thin, through the good and bad. You guys have always held my head up and have always picked me up when I was down. I personally could never thank you enough for who you are and what you do for Saving Abel, 'Hell' what you do for Rock 'n Roll.

"With all that being said, and now that I'm writing this down for all to see, it seems a little harder for me to do, but sometimes you have to follow your heart even if you don't know where it's gonna take you. So as of today, I am following my heart and am NOT continuing on as the lead singer of Saving Abel.

"This wasn't a 'spur of the moment' decision, I have fought & thought about this with myself for sometime now. I have also spoken with the rest of the guys in SA and even helped get everything together for SA to keep doing what they always do, and that is… write Rock N Roll songs, keep Rockin and keep touring with the best live shows.

"Scott Austin will be replacing me as the New lead singer, he is the front man from a band called Trash the Brand, and he is very capable of the job. I have personally seen his live shows and know he will keep the SA train rolling successfully.

"As for me, I'm currently moving to Nashville TN to record a solo album with producer Skidd Mills. This was and is an amicable decision between both me and the Saving Abel fellas. As I said earlier those boys are part of my family and always will be, I do wish them all the best success and support them in their careers, as they do me.

"I apologize to any and all fans who might feel 'let down' or upset with my decision, but like I said before, sometimes you have to follow your heart, even if you don't know where it's gonna take you. I hope to have your support in the next couple of months while recording and I sure as hell hope to see you at the shows when I'm finished with the new album and back out touring. May God bless Saving Abel & may God bless you all."
