NASHVILLE, TN – Abel is releasing their Come&Live! debut, Lesser Men, this coming Tuesday. The ten track album will be available at comeandlive.com as a free download on October 19, 2010. The band is extremely excited to offer this to their listeners as a free gift, and one of the new tracks, entitled “Saints”, is now streaming on their Myspace page.

The new record showcases Abel’s soulful indie rock style and worshipful lyrics. “This album is about forgiveness,” shares Abel vocalist Kevin Kneifel. “That no matter how far you walk away from God, He will always take you back.”

Writing for Lesser Men began after a successful tour with Deas Vail in August 2009. The band’s creativity was stirred and they immediately began to pen new songs upon their return. However, this creativity only lasted so long. “We wrote about five or six songs right when we got back, but started getting frustrated with what we were making,” explains Kneifel. “We hit a brick wall.” Following winter touring, the band once again dove into the songwriting process. “A lot of the pressures from the previous year were gone when we got back in January,” shares Kneifel. “We really took some time to refocus on Christ and work together. That’s when the dam broke and we suddenly had a whole album ready.”


Releasing Lesser Men for free on Come&Live! is a step of faith for Abel, and clearly aligns with the band’s mission to glorify God through their art. “
The music industry is such an unstable place right now,” explains Kneifel. “And it reminds us that nothing is certain except for God’s provision. Joining Come&Live! has helped us see that more and more, and we’re excited to become a part of the ministry there–and to build our own as well.”

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
