A Perfect Circle Shares New Song ‘The Doomed’ & Confirms New Album Coming In 2018
Supergroup A Perfect Circle has shared their first new single in four years. The band confirmed the track “The Doomed” will part of a new album slated for release in 2018.
The band currently made up of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, along with guitarist Billy Howerdel, former The Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, as well as bassist Matt McJunkins and drummer Jeff Friedl, had last issued new music with the release of the 2013 single “By And Down.” Earlier this year they debuted a new song entitled “Feathers” during a show on their first North American Tour since 2011.
“Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe,” said Keenan in a statement. “A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder.”
A Perfect Circle confirmed they are working on the follow-up to 2004’s eMOTIVe with producer Dave Sardy. The group recently inked a deal with BMG to issue the upcoming record.
“Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment,” said Howerdel. “We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we’re on.”
