A PERFECT CIRCLE has released the official music video for "The Doomed", the first new music to be heard from the band's expected 2018 album.
The clip, which was directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn, arrives as the band is in the final two weeks of its North American tour. A PERFECT CIRCLE also recently announced its first European tour in 14 years.
Upon arrival of "The Doomed", singer Maynard James Keenan said: "Fourteen years have passed since we released 'eMOTIVe'. 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," offered 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".
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".
