MTV spoke with Billy Howerdel recently regarding the status of A Perfect Circle, and he also confirms that APC will not be back in the near future. Though he and Maynard are both unwilling to say it’s over:
“[Maynard and I have] talked about it lightly. A few months ago, it was like, ‘If we did A Perfect Circle again, I’d want to do this or that.’ It was a benign conversation. I think we both entertain the fact that it could happen again, but for right now we don’t have any plans to do it again. We’re focusing on what we’re doing now. A Perfect Circle is done for now.”
It was good while it lasted I suppose, though as much as I like APC, I find it hard to get upset about their demise.
