2018 release. Saves the Day have been through a lot over the past two decades: Van accidents, member changes, the emo explosion, and the adventures that carried the act and their fans from adolescence to adulthood. But they've never had a proper history of the band... until now. Saves the Day's ninth album 9 tells the story of the band from the perspective of the band's founder Chris Conley and does it in a way that's as exhaustive as it is poetic and makes the listener a part of the songwriting process. On the surface, 9 chronicles the epic story of a group of kids from New Jersey who realized their dream and became international sensations but on another level it shows how Conley "woke up" and became aware of his own consciousness through his relationship with music and the unbelievable adventures it inspired since he formed the act in 1997.
