Commented Stevens: "It's always special to perform on the same bill with Jon Oliva, especially here in the States! Obviously, Jon has been a huge influence on my musical career and I remain one of his biggest fans. This tour will be a special event for all our fans that have enjoyed our work throughout the SAVATAGE years and now into the new generation of JON OLIVA'S PAIN and CIRCLE II CIRCLE music."

The band's last album, "Burden of Truth", was released in October 2006 via AFM Records.
