A PERFECT CIRCLE Reunion Rumors Gain Steam

According to The Pulse of Radio, word has begun to spread across the web that A PERFECT CIRCLE has officially been reactivated. On Tuesday (August 3), the group's recently launched Twitter account began posting tweets tagging various band members with cryptic messages like "Go tell aunt Rosie...The old grey goose is not dead."

Meanwhile, guitarist and founder Billy Howerdel tweeted, "The APC dust is shaking off!" and drummer Josh Freese posted on Facebook, "I'm happy to report that A PERFECT CIRCLE is waking up from its six-year slumber...and we're going to be 'doing stuff' soon."

There's been no official word yet on the band's re-emergence.

Singer Maynard James Keenan has been promoting his PUSCIFER project and "Blood Into Wine", the documentary about his Arizona vineyard business, while also touring with TOOL and reportedly prepping a new album with them.

Keenan hinted to The Pulse of Radio last year that A PERFECT CIRCLE could be making new music in 2010, although whether a full-length album was in the works remained to be seen.

Keenan made a surprise appearance during a show by Howerdel's other band, ASHES DIVIDE, at the Viper Room in Los Angeles in June, and the pair also performed together a few days earlier at the E3 video game convention.

The last A PERFECT CIRCLE record, a collection of political cover songs called "Emotive", was released in 2004.
