CIRCLE II CIRCLE executive producer/co-founder/manager Dan Campbell of Global Artists Management has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the group's frontman Zak Stevens claiming "breach of contract" and accusing Stevens of "attempting to embezzle funds from the partnership." According to a press release issued by Campbell, "The two have been in business for five years together with the relationship beginning in 1993 when Dan introduced Zak to his longtime friend and partner Criss Oliva which led to the employment of Zak as the new vocalist for the band SAVATAGE.
"After leaving SAVATAGE for family reasons Zak co-founded the band CIRCLE II CIRCLE with Dan in 2002, leading to three very successful releases on AFM Records. As executive producer and manager of the band, Dan secured several recording agreements and pushed the band to new heights throughout the early 2000s, leading up to the brilliant 'Burden of Truth'."
"Burden of Truth" was released last October. The CD was recorded at Tampa's Morrisound Recording.
