For Abel


For Abel’s debut album, ‘Greater Inventions’, gained deserved rave reviews, with Loud Horizon / Artrocker scribe Colin Jackson writing “if they do not make the breakthrough to general acceptance this year I’m gonna have to chuck this reviewing lark! 10/10”. The track Yorkshire was also released on 5th Nov 2011 as a single on limited edition vinyl replica cd & download. Like the song says, Britain in 2011 looks “like a scene from ‘89”.

For Abel (formerly known as Nacional) have played Glastonbury, Rockness, SxSW Texas, GoNorth, In The City Manchester and 3 successful U.K tours. They previously released 2 singles on Art Goes Pop. Radio play has included Radio 1, 6 Music, NME and XFM with Steve Lamacq, Vic Galloway, Huw Stephens, Colin Murray, Tom Robinson, Jim Gellatly and Ally McCrae lending support. Press has included Artrocker, The Skinny and Rolling Stone. Sky Sports selected ‘On TV’, track 2 from the single, to soundtrack adverts for live football.

2012 sees the band about to unleash a killer second album.
