CIRCLE II CIRCLE, the band led by former SAVATAGE frontman Zak Stevens, has released a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET in response to a press release issued by the group's former manager, Dan Campbell of Global Artists Management, in which Campbell reveals that he has filed a lawsuit against Stevens claiming "breach of contract" and accusing the singer of "attempting to embezzle funds from the partnership."
"It is unfortunate that our former manager has chosen to issue a press release with false accusations after the termination of his services," Stevens writes. "The decision to part ways with Global Artists was unanimous within the band as a result of our dissatisfaction with recent decisions and behavior exhibited by our former manager. I am confident this matter will be resolved swiftly once the details are examined by legal parties. CIRCLE II CIRCLE members stand united on this situation and look forward to the completion of the new album this fall."
CIRCLE II CIRCLE's latest album, "Burden of Truth", was released last October. The CD was recorded at Tampa's Morrisound Recording.
