While Memphis was an unlikely place for an alternative rock/post-grunge band, Saliva was able to follow in the tradition of crafting post-grunge songs in a radio-friendly format popularized by the likes of Creed and Nickelback. After competing in the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Grammy Showcase competition, where they advanced to the final round in New York City, the group self-released their self-titled debut album which sold over 10,000 copies in their region, prompting Island Records to take notice. Their Island debut Every Six Seconds was released in 2001, followed by Back Into Your System in 2002 which included the chart topping hits 'Always', and 'Rest In Pieces' co-written by James Michael and Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. The band toured in 2003 opening for Kiss and Aerosmith.
On May 29, 2005, guitarist Chris D'abaldo announced he had left the band "for obvious reasons, as the band is not a unit anymore." He then shortly retracted his statement and apologized, declaring on the band's website that "there was a bit of an issue we're working through and we're looking forward to recording a new album later this year". However, band's website currently apologizes yet again for the confusion and confirms that due to "creative differences", D'abaldo is in fact leaving the band, but that Saliva "is completely moving forward as planned and [has] our best music ahead of us".
Recently, on the groups website, information has been given stating that Jonathan Montoya is Saliva's new guitar player. Montoya was previously with Full Devil Jacket before the band went their separate ways.
Saliva released a new album on January 23, 2007 titled Blood Stained Love Story. The single, titled "Ladies & Gentlemen" has been released to radio stations and has made it to #1 on the US Mainstream Rock charts. It can be heard on their MySpace profile.
