Southern Rock outfit Saving Abel is playing the Railyard Ale House on Wednesday, July 9.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. General admission tickets for the 21 and older show are $15 in advance and at the door. Additional fees may apply.

Since 2008 Saving Abel has embodied the definition of Southern rock. Even before their debut LP, they were barnstorming the country making fans by being themselves — simple, down-home, charming country boys with talent. Their first single, “Addicted,” hit No. 1 on several charts and follow-up singles “18 Days” and “Drowning (Face Down)” helped sell more than 750,000 copies of their debut album.

They toured heavily in support of this album, playing with Buckcherry and Avenged Sevenfold, and later on Nickelback, in arenas across North America.

Saving Abel has been a supporter of the men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. “18 Days,” “Drowning (Face Down)” and “Miss America” were all written and dedicated to the military. Since 2009, Saving Abel has played for the troops in some of the most remote and dangerous places in the world, including Iraq, Qatar, Cuba, Japan and India.

In the spring of 2013, Saving Abel set out on an acoustic tour with no agenda other than to play music together for the love of it. During that tour they released a new EP, “Crackin’ The Safe,” on their own label, Hell No Pickin’.

In January, the band embarked on a new chapter as singer Jared Weeks and drummer Michael McManus left to pursue solo careers. Saving Abel, working with their new manager Jeff Hanson, found singer Scotty Austin and drummer Steven Pulley to join the band. They join Jason Null (guitar), Scott Bartlett (guitar) and Eric Taylor (bass).
