Intromental Management, which represents CIRCLE II CIRCLE (the band led by ex-SAVATAGE singer Zak Stevens), has issued the following statement:"It is with extreme disappointment and reluctance that we must announce that CIRCLE II CIRCLE will not be participating in the previously announced North American tour scheduled for the spring of 2008 with CIRCUS MAXIMUS and MANTICORA. Due to reasons beyond the band's control, the new album, 'Delusions of Grandeur', will not be released to coincide with the tour as previously planned. Intromental Management, AFM Records, and CIRCLE II CIRCLE have agreed unanimously that it would be in the band's best interest to focus all resources and effort on completing the new record and properly promoting it prior to touring. While we cannot announce anything at the moment, we are beyond excited at the potential tour partners for the band both Europe and North America in 2008. "The previously announced North American 'working vacation' will continue as planned with CIRCUS MAXIMUS stepping up into the headline slot and a third band added to the opening slot. Expectations for both bands on this tour are completely realistic. However, they are dedicated to getting out on the road in North America, spreading the word, and performing special, exclusive sets for their North American fans. A revised tour schedule will be released in the immediate future."
