A Perfect Circle

A Perfect Circle tease new single and songs on tour

We’ve had a couple of posts from the Perfect Circle social media camp the last few days, suggestion that things are in motion for new songs this tour, putting further weight behind the claims an album is in the works.

First up was a post the other day from Maynard suggesting he had some new songs to work on for the coming APC dates:

With claims of #apc2018 some on twitter asked if Tool was off the cards for next year, to which Maynard’s response was “Both?”.  Despite that, I’d say it’s unlikely we’ll see a new Tool album next year, though perhaps they might actually get to a point where they can record it.

Also released this morning as a preview of sorts on the APC Facebook page.  It’s a short silent video with the text “The Doomed” on it.  I’d hazard to guess The Doomed is the name of a new song, and perhaps we’ll see this released in the near future (possibly the 17th according to this site).

Don’t forget that A Perfect Circle are touring across North America, kicking off in about a weeks time:

Justin’s custom pedal & A Perfect Circle tickets

There’s no real Tool news at the moment (nor will there be for some time I suspect) so we have to make do with some news that is only kinda interesting, depending on what floats your boat.

Anyway, what floats my boat are guitar pedals, and Justin Chancellorr has a fancy custom version of one by boutique pedal vendor KHDK Electronics.  It’s based on their overdrive pedal called Abyss, and has some cool art as you can see below.  Nothing to suggest this is going to turn into something you can buy, but seems cool none the less.

Did you guys remember that A Perfect Circle are touring later this year?  Well they are, with dates across the US.  If you’re too tight to pay for your own ticket, you could try entering the competition at Metal Sucks, who are giving away a few tickets for every non-Festival show on the tour.  The price is being spammed endlessly by Metal Sucks and A Perfect Circle.  Good luck!

A Perfect Circle play Aftershock in CA

This morning A Perfect Circle have been announced as part of the lineup for the 2017 Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California.  They will play on October 21st with acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Mastodon, Gojira and Code Orange.  Not a bad lineup at all!

A Perfect Circle sign with BMG

A Perfect Circle have signed with record label BMG with Billy Howerdel telling us:

We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC-2017!

A few music sites around the place were pretty quick to jump on the idea that A Perfect Circle would have an album out in 2017.  Maynard pretty quickly hosed down those suggestions with a typically to the point Twitter post:

My thoughts are that unless APC have an album in the bag, it seems unlikely that a 2017 release will happen.  With an A Perfect Circle and Tool tour in the coming months, I find it a little hard to believe either band will find the time to record before Maynard’s wine harvest duties commence.

Sure, they may have written some songs, and could be well down the track towards recording, but there doesn’t seem to be any suggestion they have yet.  It feels very similar to the Tool situation to me – plenty of songwriting, and possibly even some songs done but no actual confirmation of recording happening.

My expectation is that maybe we’ll see a single or EP by years end, with possibly a new song or two in the tour setlist, and then a new full length sometime in 2018.

The question is of course – can Tool and A Perfect Circle both release an album in 2018?

 

A Perfect Circle announce US dates

It was a while ago that A Perfect Circle announced the Hollywood show as well as two Festival dates, but finally we have a list of other shows for 2017:

  • April 7 & 8 Las Vegas, NV The Pearl
  • April 10 Phoenix, AZ Comerica Theatre
  • April 11 San Diego, CA Open Air Theatre
  • April 13 San Francisco Bill Graham Civic

These new shows will go on sale on Friday morning – check with your local ticket vendor.

Interestingly it seems to me mostly the southern parts of the US – no word on whether or not these are all the dates.

 

A Perfect Circle confirm Hollywood show

A Perfect Circle have put out a press release that confirms a show at the Hollywood Bowl on May 7th, with the promise of more shows to come:

We are happy to announce that A Perfect Circle will return this Spring for our first North American tour in six years. A home town show May 7 at the Hollywood Bowl is the first of the dates we can share with you. Tickets are on-sale Thursday, Dec. 15 at 10 am pacific. More dates will be announced soon.

Previously announced festival performances:
April 29 Jacksonville, FL Welcome To Rockville
April 30 Fort Myers, FL Fort Rock
May 5 Charlotte, NC Carolina Rebellion

Tickets for the LA show seem to be via Ticketmaster.

A Perfect Circle added to US festival dates

In case you haven’t been following social media, A Perfect Circle have been added to a couple of festival dates on Eastern USA in May next year including the Carolina Rebellion festival as well as two Florida based festivals – Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville and Fort Rock in For Myers.  Tickets for most of these are already on sale I think!

Acts joining A Perfect Circle on these festivals include Soundgarden, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Gojira as well as others that appeal to me at least anyway!

We’re expecting more dates to be announced in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Carolina Rebellion!

A Perfect Circle to tour in May 2017

According to a number of sources, Billy Howerdel and Maynard James Keenan confirmed at last nights Q&A that A Perfect Circle will be touring in 2017, with a show announced for the 7th of May at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

There’s not much other detail at this stage, but word is it will be a decent sized tour and that new material has been worked on.  More details to come soon I expect!

Maynard suggest Tool have found “common ground”

In a recent interview with The Press Enterprise, Maynard James Keenan mostly talks about Puscifer , but also gives us an interesting statement about Tool, as well as expressing a desire to work on A Perfect Circle again:

Keenan said he hopes he will work again with his main A Perfect Circle collaborator, Billy Howerdel, and make new music with that band. As for Tool, there have been signs of life recently, including a 17-show tour this past January, but Keenan wasn’t promising any new music from his main band.

“We’ve found a common ground,” he said. “We just can’t seem to move forward.”

Hopefully some progress forward is made sometime in the next 6 to 10 months.
