Abrasive Rock will be hosting a live fan chat with CIRCLE II CIRCLE mainman Zachary Stevens Monday, November 14 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific (7:00 p.m. Eastern). Fans will be able to talk to Stevens directly about the group's critically acclaimed second album, "The Middle of Nowhere", as well as anything else they want to know.

Stevens sang for SAVATAGE from 1992 to 2000, replacing Jon Oliva. CIRCLE II CIRCLE's debut album, "Watching In Silence", came out in 2003. Now, with compositional/instrumental help from Oliva, Stevens has upped the ante on his promising solo career with "In the Middle of Nowhere", delivering 10 studio tracks that are being described as "a distinct synthesis of progressive rock and power metal." Considering his longtime musical pedigree, and the musicians he's surrounded himself with, this South Carolinian is primed and poised to take the prog-power sub-genre to new heights with CIRCLE II CIRCLE.
