Contrary to a statement by former SAVATAGE vocalist Zack Stevens (CIRCLE II CIRCLE) published by the Greek webzine, singer Damond Jiniya is still an active member of SAVATAGE, the group's management has confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "There are no changes in anything that has to do with SAVATAGE," the band's vocalist/mastermind Jon Oliva said in a statement. "We are currently working on new music."

As reported here earlier today, Stevens disputed a previous statement by SAVATAGE guitarist Chris Caffery that the group's next studio album would feature contributions from three singers — Jiniya, Jon Oliva and Stevens. "I don't think there will be three singers," Stevens told "I really don't think Damond is part of it anymore. To tell you the truth, from what I've seen, it's over. It's just gonna be either Jon, or Jon and me. It could be just Jon, but I really don't think Damond is in the picture anymore. I've just been hearing conversations, I just don't think it really worked out. That's me, that's my opinion for the conversations that are going around...could be wrong, but it won't be three singers."
