The Billboard
“Comfort is the one thing you cannot get by looking for it. If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth—only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with and, in the end, despair.” – C.S. Lewis

“Oh, the devil wants to drag my soul, drag my soul down to the lake of fire,” shouts Abel vocalist Kevin Kneifel in “Fire Walk With Me”—the first single off the Poughkeepsie, New York native’s upcoming full-length, Make It Right. Recorded with producer Matt Malpass (Manchester Orchestra, Lydia, Copeland), the album is raw and vibrant, catchy and real.

Formed by four close friends with a passion for creating honest art, Abel released their first full-length, Lesser Men, in late 2010 to over 14,000 downloads and an aggressive touring schedule. “The band was really thriving,” Kneifel explains, “but I watched a lot of close relationships break down that year—it was a difficult time for all of us and our loved ones.”

Born from the weight of those experiences, Make It Right showcases a darker and more pragmatic Abel. From the aggressive bite of the opening track, “I’ll Be Waiting”, to the faith-stretching questions in the closing measures, Make It Right is an indie-rock diary, achieving moments of real musical honesty.

“It’s about coming to terms with failures and unfulfilled expectations,” Kneifel continues, “I think that’s a really universal feeling, and I hope that people who hear these songs will be reminded that they’re not alone—and that those times can challenge us to become better people.”

Make It Right will be available on September 18, 2012 through iTunes, Amazon, and all digital retailers.
