We’ve been subject to years of anticipation and speculation, but now the hugely acclaimed and enigmatic Californian rock supergroup A Perfect Circle have set our minds at ease by confirming that they’ll be finally releasing their first album in fourteen years.
Following on from 2004’s ‘Emotive’, the band’s forthcoming fourth record, titled ‘Eat The Elephant’, is scheduled for release on April 20th 2018 through BMG.
Speaking on the release, vocalist Maynard James Keenan says, “Although I’m extremely excited to finally be completing this album after a 14-year hiatus, I’m actually more excited that its intentional release date is serving a greater purpose. The 20th of April is Carina Round’s birthday. She is a dear friend who is extremely difficult to shop for. Pressure off. Of course, I must also note that the potheads are gonna be thrilled that this album comes out on 4-20. May it serve as a glorious soundtrack to accompany all of the giggling and vexing sounds of nibbling and snacking. Fingers crossed, Cheech & Chong will be proud.”
