CIRCLE II CIRCLE — the band led by ex-SAVATAGE singer Zak Stevens — has cancelled its previously announced shows in Houston, Fort Worth and San Antonio due to what it calls "unprofessional representation of the promoter and improperly executed contracts." The group adds in a statement, "Rest assured that from this point forward CIRCLE II CIRCLE will only associate itself with credible, professional people who will fulfill both their obligations and promises and that after the first of the year the band will find its way back through Texas and give the fans a show they will not forget."
Affected dates are as follows:
Dec. 10 - Houston, TX @ Fitzgerald's
Dec. 11 - San Antonio, TX @ Zombie's
Dec. 12 - Fort Worth, TX @ Ridglea Theater (w/ HELSTAR)
CIRCLE II CIRCLE recently parted ways with drummer Tom Drennan and replaced him with Johnny Osborn (X-THIRTIEN, DR. BUTCHER).
CIRCLE II CIRCLE has also decided to carry on as a four-piece. "Bill Hudson [guitar] is no longer with us," the group said. "He is pursuing his own band, WRITTEN IN BLOOD, which is an AMAZING band! Be on the lookout for them.
"There have been rumors of a new guitarist. That is what they are... rumors.
"We are happily moving forward as a four- piece and wish Tom and Bill much luck in their future endeavors."
CIRCLE II CIRCLE will begin recording its fifth album in early 2010 and is featured on the Triton Power Cruise, setting sail April 30, 2010. The band is coming off of a very successful showing at ProgPower USA in Atlanta, Georgia.
