08-14-2014 | Band News
Cornith, Mississippi- Saving Abel and ROKBIZ Solutions announced today that they have entered into a multi-year partnership for ROKBIZ to exclusively design, manage and market an exciting new line of merchandise for the band. The line will be available at the band's live shows as well as through the band's own customized online store at SavingAbel.Rokbiz.com.
Through this partnership Saving Abel will be able to offer its fans a line of merchandise that will be constantly refreshed with new and unique products that are timed to celebrate certain band events or milestones. ROKBIZs unique on-demand printing technology offers a wide choice in designs, colors and styles that creates a more connected and personal experience for the fan.
"We aren't just another T-Shirt company," explains Shawn Kelly, ROKBIZ Chief Operating Officer. "In speaking with our customers, mostly touring musicians, we realized what they needed was much more than a T-Shirt printer, so we set out to create a more holistic solution by combining our proprietary web based technologies with traditional merchandising services." In addition to providing touring merchandise and an online store, ROKBIZ will also provide online marketing efforts that will fully integrate into Saving Abel's website and all its social networking platforms
This could not come at a better time for this "Tennessippi" hard rock band. Recently having replaced both their lead singer and drummer, 2014 is all about fueling the band's growth. The band will release a new album on its own label this fall. With the first single from the album about to hit radio, and in the midst of an over 60+ date national tour, aptly named "THE REVIVAL TOUR", Saving Abel is out to show the world that they are back and stronger than ever.
"ROKBIZ fits our needs perfectly" explained Scott Bartlett "We have had some hits, but we don't see ourselves as rock stars. We want to interact directly with our fans. You're talking directly to us when you post to our Facebook page or whatever, so if the fans tell us that they want something, like Saving Abel bandannas, we now have the ability to offer it almost simultaneously with the request. We hope this way we can give our fans more of what they want."
In celebration of this partnership, the band is offering a limited time special. Fans will receive a free Saving Abel drink koozie with purchase of the 2014 Revival Tour T-Shirt (available in 4 different styles). Visit SavingAbel.Rokbiz.com for more details.
