With the upcoming release of Space Between, the band harnesses the depth of their artistic experiences and seminal collaborative sound with Hagar's prolific writing vein to produce an album that builds and explodes, song after song, around the concepts of money, greed, enlightenment and truth. Formed in 2014, the acclaimed supergroup featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson, quickly established themselves 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.

“The 10 songs (or chapters) on the ‘Space Between’ are not just a bunch of new songs grouped together on an album. They were sewn together conceptually for a complete mental, emotional and physical experience (kind of a Three Lock Box). Once I had the overall vision, the lyrics and music began to just flow through me and the songs unfolded like chapters in a book.” - Sammy

Lyrically and musically, the collection of songs on Space Between build from intimate and introspective eye-openers to heart-pumping anthems. The music draws on the bands' substantial careers independently and collaboratively; presenting a veteran band still at the peak of their game. Sammy Hagar & The Circle will release Space Between on May 10 via BMG. The band will mount a large-scale tour of North American, in support of the new album, in the Spring of 2019.

BMG signed a worldwide label deal with Sammy Hagar & The Circle for the new album, Space Between, and will also include select Hagar catalog titles.

Well, well, well, finally a new album for all of you patient Redheads. 
The 10 chapters on the “Space Between” are not just a bunch of new songs grouped together on an album.  They were sewn together conceptually for a complete mental, emotional and physical experience (kind of a Three Lock Box). Inspiration is a beautiful thing for an artist and making this album is living proof that when the fire of creativity strikes, the songwriting process doesn’t have to be painful or a struggle.  Once I had the overall vision, the lyrics and music began to just flow through me. This record was recorded and written to be listened to in its entirety.
I’ve also buried some hidden treasures in there to help stimulate the minds of those who enjoy a good mental puzzle. 
Having The Circle, who are such great people, friends and musicians, has made it one of the easiest and enjoyable times in my life to write, create and record an album. 
To Mikey, Jason and Vic: “Thank you for taking this journey with me. We had a blast recording it and I can’t wait to get on stage with you guys and play it for the fans.”
And to the Redheads: “I’ve said it a million times and I will say it again — You are the best fans in the world! It’s amazing how many incarnations of my music and lifestyle you have hung in there for. You’ve showed up to the shows, parties, restaurants & bars and shared the experience with us, and together with other Redheads, like a big family gathering! That is special, and I am forever grateful. Thank you for allowing me the freedom to follow my heart and passions.”

Great album! Thanks for your music and artistry! I love how the album is more of an experience as a whole instead of each song being on its own. That is something I don't see a whole lot these days so thank you!

Sammy and Co.
Great album. I have followed Sammy and Mike for a long time and I have nothing but respect for you and the rest of the band. I have been a red rocker fan since I was 14 and I will adding 39 years since that day in a few months so I know how all of you have persevered through it all. Was hoping to see you guys but the world is in very scary predicament right now. I know some day I will be able to go out and get it. The world goes round and round and eventually it will be time for us to have the best of both worlds. God bless all of you and I hope again to see you again, twice is never enough.

I’m hoping I’ll meet Sammy one day. I had breast cancer last yr at 56, and it was devastating. Sammy was in Bensalem and I was in Delaware. My boyfriend was sweet enough to take him, but I was the only one that went by myself. I have seen Sammy for yrs. The first time he floored me In the 80’s when he was with Journey,Bryan Adams, John cougar and Tommy Tutone. After that I was floored. To show how much I love him, I’m including a pic of sneakers I had custom made that I will wear with love and pride. Love you Sammy!!Your shows never disappoint I can’t get the pic to come on, but it’s the pic of “unboxed” on them. Can’t wait!!!!

I went to DTE!!! Best show ever.
I bought a women's XL concert t-shirt and I'm not happy with it. It is definitely not a WOMEN'S t-shirt.
I'd like to get a new one. A 2xl would do the trick to house my tata's.
Where can I get a concert "T".
Can any of my fellow Red Heads help.
