It just turned 2018 and the first new music of the year came from A Perfect Circle. Singer Maynard James Keenan tweeted that something was coming for Tuesday on New Year's Eve.
A Perfect Circle has not released a full-length album since 2004’s Emotive, an album that consisted of primarily anti-war cover songs. Prior to that, the band has not released a collection of new original music since 2003’s Thirteenth Step.
On the status of the band’s long-awaited album, guitarist Billy Howerdel recently stated that they are “well over the midway point.” “I’ve got a studio on the road, and Maynard [James Keenan]’s still working and he’s still writing,” Howerdel explained. “It’s tough on the road; I knew it was gonna be hard, but it’s been tougher than I thought it would be to bet in a groove and keep going. But we’re about to have a stretch here in about a week when I think it’s going to be time to get a lot done.”
“Disillusioned” is available for digital purchase on 1/2. A limited edition 10″ single with previous APC single “The Doomed” is out 3/9 and available for pre-order here. https://store.aperfectcircle.com/products/the-doomed-disillusioned-10-vinyl
