Saves The Day are heading out on tour this fall to celebrate the release of 9, the band’s first album in 5 years. The band will be coming through Pittsburgh at Mr. Smalls on November 9th with support from Kevin Devine and An Horse.
9 offers the first ever autobiographical look into the history of Saves The Day, as told from the perspective of its founder, Chris Conley. As Conley puts it “This album is the story of Saves The Day and my own personal journey through life, which all unfolded as my relationship with music progressed”. On the surface, 9 chronicles the epic story of a group of kids from New Jersey who realized their dream and became an international sensation. On a deeper level, it shows how Conley “woke up” and became aware of his own consciousness through his relationship with music and the unbelievable adventures it has inspired since he formed the act in 1997.
The current line-up of Saves The Day includes vocalist and guitarist Chris Conley, guitarist Arun Bali, bassist Rodrigo Palma, and drummer Dennis Wilson. Having a catalog across 24 years and nine albums, the band’s set is sure to be a lively journey through the decades showcasing new tracks from 9 and fan favorites alike. The band’s latest video for single “Side By Side” reflects upon this journey, capturing the process of friends becoming bandmates and having the time of their lives at a Saves The Day concert before performing on their own.
