A Perfect Circle

Formed by Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan and former Tool guitar tech Billy Howerdel, A Perfect Circle is an extension of the alt-metal-fused-with-art rock style popularized by Tool in the early to mid-'90s. While similar to Tool in intensity and melancholy, A Perfect Circle is less dark and more melodic, with a theatrical, ambient quality that incorporates occasional strings and unusual instrumentation.

After the release of Ænima in 1996, Tool found themselves in the midst of an extended legal battle with former label Freeworld Entertainment. When the dust settled two years later, the band reached a 50/50 joint venture agreement for future recordings and, feeling a little burned out, decided to take some time off. It was at this point that Keenan joined up with Howerdel and Paz Lenchantin to form A Perfect Circle. Keenan had met Howerdel in 1992 when Tool opened for Fishbone. Howerdel had been Fishbone's tech at the time and had played Keenan a few of his songs. Keenan was impressed and the two talked of collaborating in the future. However, the opportunity didn't present itself until after the Freeworld settlement. With Keenan on vocals, Howerdel on guitar, and Lenchantin on bass, the trio recruited ex-Failure and Enemy member Troy Van Leeuwen on guitar and ex-Vandals and Guns N' Roses member Josh Freese on drums.

The quintet rehearsed together but didn't announce the formation of a new band until performing for the first time on August 15, 1999, at a benefit concert at the Viper Room in Los Angeles. Howerdel, who had been composing songs for years, as well as working with bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails, became the band's chief songwriter and producer. A Perfect Circle released their debut album, Mer de Noms, in 2000. Thirteenth Step followed in 2003, and the covers album Emotive appeared in 2004.

Shortly after the release of their DVD set aMOTION, A Perfect Circle went on hiatus. During their downtime, Keenan went on to record albums with his solo project, Puscifer, while Howerdel began making albums with his new band, Ashes Divide. While rumors of the band writing songs cropped up now and again, A Perfect Circle returned (to the stage, at least) in 2010, and released their first new song, "By and Down," on their 2013 greatest-hits compilation, Three Sixty. ~ Tracy Frey, Rovi

You cast your demons out.
Not to pull your halo down...
Around your neck and tug you down to the ground...
But I'm just a little more than curious how you plan to about to make your amends to the dead... To the dead...

With your halo slipping down

First time hearing them today. Sounds like Tool meets Pink Floyd and both let production interfere. It's damn good and I'm not b**chin' but it could be better without Pro Tools junkies at the helm. dial up a little three peice early band stuff like Nirvana. That's where I'm coming from.

Maynard has some twisted names for his Vineyard. Merkin the name of the vineyard is a wig prostitutes wore around the genitals to cover up soars, scabs ,puss and other edibles. Lol.. Having fun in Jerome Az.. Friends call him Jim. Remember its AllinFun.

Here's sum cool JMK facts.. He wrestled in Highschool while living with his dad. He was in the Army for6yrs. He attributes his ability to take on many projects partly due to service. He managed a Pet shop.. He was soo good they sent him to other shops in their chain to help them make over. Like Pet store rescue. Lol.. His 1st band was CAD.. Some of the material he performed in that band made it onto Undertow. He likes to put hidden art&music in his recordings. He owns vineyards & has a few wines

Tool and Perfect Circle: same singer, similar feeling, completely different sound. I appreciate them both for what they are. Compairisons are pointless.

Matty.. You have a perfect insight. Your comments are spot on. This is my favorite APC.. I struggle with my own addictions. Any one forced to go to a pay 4 profit rehab probably won't do anything in steps 1-12 but will know the 13th over and over.. Sad cuz our government could end it with total legalization of all drugs.. It shouldn't cost more than a head of lettuce.
