CIRCLE II CIRCLE, the new band fronted by former SAVATAGE singer Zachary Stevens, will perform at the Tampa Metalfest 2003 on July 4. Joining the group onstage will be "a VERY special guest on stage, a player we have never had live on stage with us before," the band write on their official web site. "Oh and *uhmm* maybe the Mountain King will show up, too -)"

According to the group, "a part of the proceeds will go to the families affected by The Station fire in Rhode Island, another part will be transferred to the Ty Longley Foundation to support Ty's unborn child. Ty was GREAT WHITE's late guitarist, who was among the 100 victims of the terrible tragedy."

CIRCLE II CIRCLE's debut album, "Watching In Silence", was released last month in Europe through Germany's AFM Records. All compositions on the CD were written by Stevens and SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva, with four exceptions, which were penned by Stevens and SAVATAGE guitarist Chris Caffery. In addition, the album features a duet between Zachary and Jon on a song called "Forgiven".
