Watch SAMMY HAGAR's 'Space Between' Short Film

"Space Between" is an experimental short film based on SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE's concept album of the same name. The movie follows the main character, John, through a gluttonous and greed-filled arc of his life where newly inherited money consumes him as he chases an endless circle of drugs, gambling and parties. After bottoming out, he must make a choice to go back to that lifestyle or confront his own demons and begin a path toward enlightenment and truth.

"Space Between" was directed by ZZ Satriani, the son of Hagar's CHICKENFOOT bandmate Joe Satriani, and also features footage of THE CIRCLE in the studio and onstage at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

"I gave [ZZ] a whole bunch of money and said, 'Go crazy!'" Hagar told Billboard. "The reason I like this movie is it gives the album more legs. It's not just a record, and when you see this movie, you're gonna go back and listen to the record and go, 'Oh!' It elevates your listening and viewing experience."

Earlier in the year, Hagar said that he was unsure of how he planned to distribute the movie, explaining that he was hoping for a tour of film festivals and then a deal with Netflix or another outlet.

"I just want people to see it," he said. "It's expensive and self-indulgent as hell, but I love it. I want to have something to say; Even if it's just purely how I feel about the world, I'd rather do that than just make up some silly shit. It's the first time I've ever tried to do something deep. It makes me look forward to playing every night, and I'm excited for the first time in a long, long time."

In addition to Hagar, THE CIRCLE features Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson,

Formed in 2014, SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE quickly established itself as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on tour today, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from MONTROSE, VAN HALEN, SAMMY HAGAR AND THE WABORITAS and LED ZEPPELIN.

BMG signed a worldwide label deal with SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE for "Space Between", and will also include select Hagar catalog titles.
