Album drops this fall

Sammy Hagar and The Circle, featuring Jason Bonham, Michael Anthony and Vic Johnson, will release their second studio album, Crazy Times, this fall via BMG. The project will be available on CD and digital on September 30th and vinyl on October 28th. The album’s first single and title track, “Crazy Times,” is now available digitally.

“This song is basically about how I feel coming out the other side of everything we’ve all gone through together the last couple years,” Hagar shares. “These are some crazy times.”

The 12 track album was recorded in Nashville with producer Dave Cobb, showing a new side of the band.

“It’s The Circle’s second studio record, done with Dave Cobb,” Hagar shares. “Yeah, uh huh, I’m excited. I can’t wait. You’re gonna love it. Whoa! It’s been a long time coming. Number two studio album for The Circle.”

Crazy Times is the fourth project from the band, which includes last year’s Lockdown 2020 that was recorded on iPhones during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, their 2019 studio debut Space Between, and their 2015 double live project, At Your Service.

The group is currently on their Crazy Times North American summer amphitheater tour with special guests George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Produced by Live Nation and presented by Hagar’s portfolio of spirits, the trek concludes on September 17th in Irving, TX, after adding two Texas dates due to overwhelming demand.

Formed in 2014, the acclaimed supergroup, made up of Hagar on guitar and vocals, bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson, has established itself as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on tour today, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from Montrose, Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas and Led Zeppelin.

Cool video. Sounds like ‘Right Now’.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

With a dash of “Me Wise Magic” tossed in every time they go into the quick break.
