A Perfect Circle have just released their new song ‘The Doomed.’
The release comes just a few short days after the band teased the track’s impending release on social media, and less than a week after Maynard James Keenan suggested a new album could be released in 2018.
Now, with this release, Keenan has confirmed that next year will see the release of A Perfect Circle’s first studio album since 2004’s eMOTIVe.
“14 years have passed since we released eMOTIVe,” he says 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.”
With this new album on the way and Keenan recently stating he’s putting his main focus on APC rehearsals for the time being, it seems likely that a new Tool album could be put on the backburner.
That’s despite Tool bassist Justin Chancellor revealing in June that their forthcoming record was 90 per cent complete.
