Saves The Day is back with their sixth studio album ‘Under The Boards’, out next Tuesday (October 30). Ahead of its release, you can listen to the album in full at myspace.com/savestheday.
While Saves The Day vocalist/guitarist Christopher Conley may write and belt out emotional lyrics, he admitted to Chart magazine the songs aren’t about him at all. “I make up most of the words,” Conley admitted. “The only factual things in the song lyrics are the emotions and they’re behind the veil of the words. So the words are totally imagined. It’s not like I’m talking about my own life. I’m not telling people, ‘Oh, this happened when I was 19’, or whatever. I’m just getting feelings off my chest – that’s all.”
Rock acts on television this week include Saves the Day, who performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday; Fuel, who performs on the Sharon Osbourne Show on Tuesday; Something Corporate, who perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday; and the Rapture, who perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday.

New York Newsday’s Glenn Gamboa talked to Saves The Day singer Chris Conley about the band’s breakthru success which he’s been overwhelmed by. Conley admits, “It’s been amazingly exciting. It’s been life-altering in a way, and we knew it at our first show after the album came out. I walked on stage and there was this huge, overwhelming noise released from the audience. That was a little shocking. Then people started throwing their hands in the air trying to reach out and touch my hand. It’s one of the most overwhelming things I’ve ever had to deal with.”
