Maynard James Keenan teased a “New Year’s treat” this weekend, and A Perfect Circle delivered in the form of a new track, “Disillusioned,” from their untitled forthcoming album. The new album will be their first release in over a decade, since 2004’s eMOTIVe. Their fourth studio album is due out some time this year, but no official date has been announced yet.
This is the second release off of the new album, following the October release of “Doomed.” In November they released a beautifully shot black and white video for “Doomed” directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn. Hopefully we’ll see a new video for “Disillusioned follow shortly.
A Perfect Circle have signed a worldwide recording deal with BMG and are working with producer Dave Sardy on the new album. The band’s current line-up is Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer), Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide), James Iha (Tinted Windows, ex-Smashing Pumpkins), Jeff Friedl (Puscifer, The Beta Machine) and Matt McJunkins (Eagles of Death Metal, The Beta Machine).
The band has a handful of dates planned in the UK this summer. You can buy tickets here. Stay tuned for a North American tour announcement later this year.
