about

For Abel released their debut album, ‘Greater Inventions’, on 16th May 2011. We’re not going to be shy. The album is magnificent. Vic Galloway was right!

But rather than bore you with superlatives, we’ll stick to the facts.

Sky Sports featured the track ‘On TV’ on Champions League trailers. The album followed 2 singles released on Art Goes Pop which gained radio play from BBC Radio 1 & 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Vic Galloway, Huw Stephens, Colin Murray, Tom Robinson and Jim Gellatly as well as NME radio’s Chris Martin and XFM. Press has included Artrocker, The Skinny, Rolling Stone Italy and a memorable feature in the Sunday Post. Video plays include Channel M, MTV2 and Popmorphic.

Highlights include playing Glastonbury, Rockness, SxSW Texas, GoNorth, In The City Manchester and 3 U.K tours. For Abel also won the Magnus Magnusson award and recording of the album attracted funding from Creative Scotland. For Abel featured on the 2011 Strummerville compilation and appeared on Artrocker’s ‘Jail Guitar Doors’ compilation.

To support the album release the band headed out on a UK tour. Guitarist Colin Healy defied medical advice to play the tour with a broken leg. But just how did Colin break his leg?
