Locomotive Records has set an August 30 U.S. release date for the new album from CIRCLE II CIRCLE, the band founded by former SAVATAGE lead singer Zachary Stevens.
Stevens sang for SAVATAGE from 1992 to 2000, replacing Jon Oliva. CIRCLE II CIRCLE's debut solo album, "Watching in Silence", set the scene in 2003. Now, with compositional/instrumental help from Oliva, Stevens has upped the ante on his promising solo career with "The Middle of Nowhere", delivering "a work of art that was pains takenly constructed over a 10-month period of recording seclusion, devastating hurricanes, and many of life's trials and tribulations," according to a press release. "The record flows like a twisting tale of insanity, devastation, and illusion that takes you on a cynical roller coaster ride with a cleansing conclusion of triumph over diversity."
"The Middle of Nowhere" was produced by Stevens with Jim Morris and Dan Campbell and features the songwriting talents of Stevens, Oliva and Chris Caffery (both of SAVATAGE). Also contributing two tracks to the CD is new songwriting partner Bernd Aufermann of RUNNING WILD.
CIRCLE II CIRCLE lineup:
Zachary Stevens - Vocals
Paul Micheal Stewart – Bass, Vocals
Thomas Drennan – Drums, Vocals
Evan Christopher - Guitars, Vocals
Andrew Lee - Guitars, Vocals
