New Single "Pump It Up" OUT NOW!
LOS ANGELES – August 19, 2022 – Rock & Roll Hall of Fame®-inducted, Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Sammy Hagar today debuted the video for “Pump it Up,” with his Billboard chart-topping supergroup The Circle – watch the official video HERE. “Pump it Up,” a cover of Elvis Costello and the Attractions’ 1978 classic, was recorded live during a warm-up session, and on the encouragement of the album’s producer Dave Cobb, who also plays rhythm guitar on the track, it made the album. “Pump it Up” is available today on all digital and streaming platforms. The CD and vinyl configurations, including a translucent red color vinyl exclusive, are available for pre-order HERE. The music video was directed by Travis Detweiler.
 
Upon the release of the album’s title track “Crazy Times” in July, Guitar World said, “Front and center we have Hagar’s voice, … all syrup and gravel and soul. Stick your best pair of headphones on and listen to the track – you can hear that this choice is money well spent.” The album, set for release on Friday, Sept. 30 via Ume, finds Hagar, fellow Hall of Famer and longtime bassist Michael Anthony, Grammy-winning drummer Jason Bonham and Grammy-winning guitar virtuoso Vic Johnson changing course, traveling to Nashville’s RCA Studio A to record with Cobb. The 8-time Grammy Award-winning producer, who grew up obsessively listening to Hagar, set out to record “the definitive Sammy Hagar record.” The new album includes 10 songs, nine of which Hagar wrote or co-wrote, along with the notable cover, “Pump It Up.” As Hagar explained, “We went in the studio with six songs and came out with 10. We ended up cowriting three songs with Dave Cobb and he played rhythm guitar on every track. Pump it Up was a surprise, that when we played back we all went ‘that sounds f’ing great’.
 

In support of the album’s release, Sammy Hagar & The Circle will headline the Illinois State Fair on Sunday, Aug. 21, before returning to their critically acclaimed “Crazy Times” U.S. tour on Aug. 23 at Pine Knob Music Theatre in Michigan. Fans and critics have been raving about the new songs, which have found their way into the tour’s greatest hits-heavy setlist. Produced by Live Nation, the tour hits amphitheaters in major cities throughout the U.S. before wrapping on Saturday, Oct. 1 in Sacramento, CA. Following the tour, Hagar will celebrate his 75th birthday at his annual week of Birthday Bash concerts at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
