Sammy Hagar Offers First Preview Of Supergroup The Circle’s New Album

Having wrapped up his band The Circle’s new album just last month, Sammy Hagar posted to his Instagram account a clip of himself listening to the record in the studio and singing along with it. The Circle is Hagar’s latest band that also includes bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson. It’s the first LP of original material by the group, whose previous effort, 2015’s At Your Service, was a live record that incorporated hits from Hagar’s past, as well as some Led Zeppelin covers in a nod to Bonham’s late father. A couple of weeks ago, Bonham said the album is a “concept kind of album” in that it’s meant to be played in order, from start to finish. On his Instagram clip, Hagar used the hashtags “#lastsongonrecord,” suggesting that the song is the album’s closer, and “#january,” which could be anything from when he plans to release the record to the name of the track. . ...Read Full Story
