A PERFECT CIRCLE has released a 2D video for "Eat The Elephant", the title track of its latest album. The clip, which is taken from the Steven Sebring-diretced ("Horses: Patti Smith And Her Band", "Dream Of Life") companion film for the album of the same name, is part of a first of its kind, album-length hologram film viewable via a prism included in the "Eat The Elephant" deluxe box set.
A PERFECT CIRCLE's Grammy Museum performance Wednesday night (October 10) was a rarity for the multi-platinum outfit whose most recent Los Angeles date was a sold-out evening at the Hollywood Bowl. On Wednesday, the band offered the lucky 200 fans and friends in attendance an opportunity to hear songs from "Eat The Elephant" in an intimate setting that highlighted the songs Mojo described as "at once brooding and beautiful." Billy Howerdel and Maynard James Keenan kicked off the evening by joining the audience for a discussion about the 12-song release.
This week, A PERFECT CIRCLE also announced its participation in Record Store Day's "Black Friday" festivities, offering a limited-edition seven-inch single featuring "So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish" with a B-side of the AC/DC cover "Dog Eat Dog".
The "Eat The Elephant" video, Grammy Museum performance and Record Store Day participation kick off what is a busy fall for A PERFECT CIRCLE, which will launch a U.S. tour next week and venture back to Europe in December for a three-week trek.
"Eat The Elephant" debuted atop numerous Billboard charts, grabbing the No. 1 spot on the Rock, Independent and Alternative Albums charts, a No. 2 entry on the Top Current Albums chart (for pure album sales) and a No. 3 album debut on the Top 200. This is the band's fourth consecutive Top 5 debut on the Billboard 200.
