Former Members Of CIRCLE II CIRCLE Release Statement

Former CIRCLE II CIRCLE members — John Zahner (keyboards), Christopher Kinder (drums), Matt La Porte (guitars), Kevin Rothney (bass) and Shane French (guitars) — have issued the following statement regarding their departure from the group:

"As we approached the upcoming [European] tour with SAXON and DORO, there were many financial and logistical issues that needed to be discussed and finalized. We (5) attempted to have a business meeting with [singer] Zak Stevens and management. Our request was denied. After learning that the entire band was to be replaced after the tour was completed, it became apparent to all of us that management had decided that our concerns were of no concern to them. There were many issues which plagued the planning of the tour. The band was simply tired of the general lack of respect that we were receiving from 'C2C Inc.'

"It was a very tough decision for all of us. We have given 1000% to the success of this band and could no longer accept management's business practices.

"We would like to thank the fans for their incredible support. We always looked forward to meeting new faces at each show. That is one of the things that we will miss. But rest assured, we will see you all again very soon!"
