Film follows album of the same name
Sammy Hagar & The Circle have released Space Between: The Film digitally. Space Between is a 35 minute experimental short film based on Sammy Hagar & The Circle’s concept album of the same name. The movie follows the main character, John, through a gluttonous and greed-filled arc of his life where newly inherited money consumes him as he chases an endless circle of drugs, gambling and parties. After bottoming out, he must make a choice to go back to that lifestyle or confront his own demons and begin a path toward enlightenment and truth.
“At this stage in my life and career, I can’t do it for any other reason than inspiration,” Hagar shares. “Besides it being a concept record that made it different for me as a writer and as a musician, the process of doing it was I kept telling the story.”
Directed and edited by ZZ Satriani, the long form video takes fans inside the album with studio and live performance clips juxtaposed with scripted elements set to the music of Space Between.
Hagar serves as Executive Producer with Satriani, Ethan Anderson and Joe Siegal set as producers.
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.
