Circle II Circle Announce New Lineup

Circle II Circle, the new band fronted by former Savatage singer Zachary Stevens, have announced the details of their new lineup.

Commented Stevens: "Zak says, We have been very careful to select only the best musicians for the new band. All of these guys came highly recommended by a very good friend of ours, John 'Ozzy' Osborn, who had just filled in on drums for our Saxon/Doro tour. He really understood what kind of players we needed to go to that next level, and thank god he did, because he introduced us to some really great players and some really great friends.

"Mitch Stewart (bass/vocals) and Tom Drennan (drums/vocals) were able to get on board during the June/July tour with Blaze and Saxon. They were so absolutely fantastic and made such a HUGE impression on all of the fans and press that we knew they were the guys we were looking for.

"After the tour they recommended that we contact some great friends of theirs, Evan Christopher (guitars/vocals) and Andrew Lee (guitars/vocals), both of whom they had been performing with in Nashville for many years. On the December tour with Saxon and Doro, Circle II Circle hooked up with keyboard great Oliver Palotai of Doro to handle the intricate keyboard arrangements and soon he became Circle II Circle's sixth touring member."

Circle II Circle are currently completing work on their second album, "Faces In the Dark", tentatively due late February 2005 through AFM Records. The pre-production for the CD was completed at Cabin Fever Studios in Brooksville, Florida.

Commented Zak: "We have finally found our own Circle II Circle sound!

"We make 'classic heavy metal' in a modern way!! Pushing the old boundaries, and creating a new future for this style of music that we all love so much."

In 2005, Circle II Circle will hit the road once again with an extensive worldwide tour, including some great summer festivals and possibly a headlining tour in the fall.
