The band, which features Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel, Matt McJunkins, Jeff Friedl and ex-Smashing Pumpkin James Iha, have signed a new worldwide record deal with BMG, and are currently working on a new full-length studio album to be released 13 years after their previous one.
In a press release from BMG, Howerdel says, “We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC-2017!”
While the news is great for fans of A Perfect Circle, it’s not so great for fans of Tool, who are still
patiently waiting for the Maynard James Keenan-fronted group to release the follow-up to their 2006 album 10,000 Days. Luckily, it looks like that album might not be too far off either.
Could we get new Tool and A Perfect Circle albums in the same year??
A Perfect Circle will begin their first North American tour since 2011 next week, but are yet to announce any new shows outside of the US. Fingers crossed that changes soon.
