A brand new A PERFECT CIRCLE song titled "The Doomed" can be streamed below.
The track's release follows Friday's (October 13) fifteen-second tease from A PERFECT CIRCLE's official Twitter account and singer Maynard James Keenan recently hinting that a new APC album was on the way.
"Fourteen years have passed since we released 'eMOTIVe'," said Maynard James Keenan. "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."
"Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment," added guitarist Billy Howerdel. "We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we’re on."
A PERFECT CIRCLE recently announced it had signed a worldwide recording deal with BMG and is in the studio working with producer Dave Sardy on the follow-up to "eMOTIVe".
"The Doomed" arrives as A PERFECT CIRCLE kicks off the second leg of its first North American tour in six years, launching on October 21 at the Aftershock festival.
A PERFECT CIRCLE has been largely inactive on the recording front for the past thirteen years, with only a new song titled "By And Down" surfacing on a hits collection in 2013.
Back in April, A PERFECT CIRCLE debuted a different new song, "Hourglass", at a concert in St. Louis.
The band's lineup remains unchanged from 2013. Joining Keenan and Howerdel once again are James Iha on rhythm guitar, Matt McJunkins on bass and Jeff Friedl on drums.
During the time that A PERFECT CIRCLE has been mostly on hiatus, Howerdel launched an act called ASHES DIVIDE, while Keenan toured and recorded with TOOL and PUSCIFER while also running a winery.
A PERFECT CIRCLE's three previous albums are 2000's "Mer De Noms", 2003's "Thirteenth Step" and the aforementioned 2004 covers collection, "eMOTIVe".
