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

In a Perfect Circle interview disc Maynard states himself the song was written about his mother Judith and her blind faith. Not disputing that songs can be poetic however not in this case. Furthermore it is most definitely not written in a party point of view. This song is blatantly addressed to Christ Himself (blasphemy) for which there is forgiveness. Matthew 12:31

You are missing it on their lyrics. Not to mention, lyrics can be written as a party point of view.....not necessarily the pov of the author every time. It makes what he does more diverse. Maynard is BY FAR, one of the greatest songwriters (poets) EVER.

This world and its troubles are temporal. The Peace and Love God offers though Christ in forever.....

Not talking nonsense sw7ndel. Maynard was so pissed off at God because his mother loved the Lord and held tightly to her faith until she died. He never could grasp the Peace she felt being in a such a devoted relationship with Jesus that it devastated him, hence the anger /anguished tormented soul he possess. The whole point I'm trying to make is there is a better way full of Faith, Hope, and Love and the greatest of these is Love. The Saviors Love surly heals and restores a broken soul....

Wow. Indiana 70 times 7. Judith is about his mother who at the time had cancer. Since then has died. The last tool album 10,000 days was how long her fight was. If you have no clue about a song don't talk s**t

That goes for any of you who supposedly don't like him and then go on to site whatever dumb asss reason/s as to why! We (especially me) fans of his music could give a shite less as to why your low iq brain can't come close to wrapping your mind around his thoughts put through in his lyrics.

savethissw your quote..... Maynard has clearly documented that he doesn't yell during most new songs bc that frustration is no longer inside him, bc his previous songs were 'selfishly ' therapeutic .

People groups have claimed Christianity throughout history doesn't mean they believe in the Messiah. Their claims were more about Religion than the Living God. Again I don't need to defend Him.

Who's talking about the crusades or Muslim's? Reading comprehensio n must not be your strong suit. Stay on topic numb nuts . Typical left wing fruitcake spewing out nonsense to fit your political agenda.

Turn off the tv, step away from cnn and stop following and believing everything your told.

Matty, you opened your mouth, so to speak, so you're in this now. Question, how many wars have been started in the name of Christianity ? How many 'natives' have been killed by Christians for not being, Christian?
Islam (because Matty, muslim, is not what you call that religion) has actually been more tolerant of Christians than vice versa, I.e. Before the Christian led crusades. (There have been 9 Indiana)

Been a fan the first time I heard Sober back in '93... Been to a few of their shows. I know the song Judith. I know about his mother a devout Christian woman. She understood the Hope that's in the Gospel message and held on to those Truths till the day she died a physical death. This is what made Maynard so angry. She knew that she would Live forever Spiritually in His Love. That's Faith... Man I pray I have that kind of faith....

I want you it listen to the song Judith is about his mother who had suffered a stroke and was crippled from it. He sings "f@ck your god..." When asked about it he said "he was talking about the god of the sheep." God doesn't need you to defend him your church dose. I'm tired of seeing you preach on this page.
