A Perfect Circle return with new album Eat The Elephant

A Perfect Circle confirm that their new album titled Eat The Elephant will launch in April - listen to new track TalkTalk

A Perfect Circle have confirmed that their new album will be released in April.

It’s titled Eat The Elephant and it’ll launch on April 20 via BMG. It’s the band’s first album since 2004’s Emotive and they’ve marked the announcement by streaming their new single TalkTalk.

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. 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.”

Guitarist Billy Howerdel adds: “Demos are these precious ideas that you love in their initial state. Then you collaborate, invite other ideas, and watch them progress.

“That’s the dynamics and growth of a great record. I feel we’ve made a great record.”

Eat The Elephant is now available for pre-order.

In addition, A Perfect Circle have also announced further 2018 tour dates which can be found below, along with the Eat The Elephant tracklist.
