Here’s great news for A Perfect Circle fans. The Maynard James Keenan fronted group will unleash a new album in 2017. The album will mark the band’s full-length follow-up to 2004’s “eMOTIVe.” It’s their first bit of new music since then, aside from a new single they released in 2013, “By and Down.”
According to a recent press release, A Perfect Circle have signed to BMG for the group’s upcoming, fourth studio album. “We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC-2017!” guitarist and founder Howerdel said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to welcome A Perfect Circle to BMG and excited to present their highly-anticipated new music to the world,” Jon Cohen, EVP Recorded Music at BMG added. “Their uncompromising approach, vision and legion of fans have made them one of the most artistic and commercially successful acts in rock.”
The news comes about a week before A Perfect Circle kicks off their spring headline tour on April 7th in Las Vegas, Nevada. They’ll stay on the road through a May 7th show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. You can catch the guys live at Bridgestone Arena May 3rd.
Details regarding the album’s title and release date are yet to come.
