Circle II Circle features the voice of Atlantic Records recording artists Savatage from 1992-2000, Zak Stevens, and was formed in 2003 in Tampa, FL. CIIC currently has five world-wide releases to its credit over the last nine years; "Watching in Silence"(2003)
To put CIIC in a specific genre style isn’t easy, but you can expect every live show to deliver the high-powered thunder of that Southern rock-edged, progressive metal/hard rock sound that has become their unique trademark. As always you can anticipate a heavy dose of Stevens’ over-the-top power and ultra-melodic rock vocals leading the charge. The current live set offers a tribute to Savatage with all of the most requested songs from Zak’s era, intertwining a powerful collection of CIIC songs from the past decade; in short … one amazing concert!!
Being able to reinvent themselves over and over again and staying relevant is extremely hard to do, and the fact that they are able to over-come this massive obstacle is something that very few bands have done. It proves that CIIC is here to stay, and with the recent signing to RageOn Stage Management, we’re told that lots of plans are in the works with this new merge and the buzz for more USA tour dates has started to gain attention from the media and loyal fans.
The band Circle II Circle includes: Zak Stevens (Vocals), Mitch Stewart (Bass), Bill Hudson (Guitars), Christian Wentz (Guitars), Henning Wanner (Keyboards), Adam Sagan (Drums ~ Tour Fill-in). For a complete list of tour dates please visit the official CIIC site.
