Good interview, thanks for the link.

Interesting that he seems to think almost the opposite of the way May Jay does when it comes to releasing stuff. Also, he made it a point to say twice that the 360 track list was not his choice.

Did he sound like he was in a bad mood? Maybe it me but near the end it came off as him being annoyed or something.

Good read. He sounds very optimistic that another cohesive, full-length record is going to come out with APC. I just don't see it happening.

I'd say there's about 50/50 chance of them releasing a new album.

Well done. Excellent interview. Confirms for me that another APC album could have easily been completed years ago had Maynard not started this Puscifer shit. Sucks for Billy. Hope the new Ashes Divide album does well. I never really got into the first one beyond a song or two, but I appreciate Billy's talent and his openness about his process. There is a sincerity and a sense of transparency about what he does that is refreshing.

"As far as like dividing the songs up, I just came up with this idea to re-designate the songs I was working on to be A Perfect Circle songs and not Ashes songs. I felt like I was really coming to the end of finishing the Ashes record, but there was something not sitting right with me. I realized that it was really the new APC record. Whether it is in the end, we’ll see. But I just went and revisited some of the songs, I took a couple of the keystone songs and made them fit within the new Ashes record, but wrote new material."

Sounds like Billy is currently putting together BOTH the Ashes Divide album AND the A Perfect Circle album...
