Perk those ears up for a new A Perfect Circle song

A Perfect Circle will embark on their fall North American tour starting this weekend at Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California — a major rock and metal festival with everyone from Stone Sour to Ozzy Osbourne — and the guys have released a new tune to take with them on the road.

The Maynard James Keenan-fronted group’s new track, “The Doomed,” is currently streaming via YouTube. The song is the first piece of new music to arrive off A Perfect Circle’s much-anticipated 2018 full-length record.

“Fourteen years have passed since we released ‘eMOTIVe,” frontman Maynard James Keenan said in statement, regarding the group’s last full-length studio album.

He added, “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,” guitarist Billy Howerdel added. “We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we’re on.”

A Perfect Circle also recently announced that they’re signed with BMG and are in the studio, writing and recording their follow-up to 2004’s “eMOTIVe” with producer Dave Sardy.

The band currently features Keenan, Howerdel, along with James Iha, Jeff Friedl and Matt McJunkins. Find A Perfect Circle’s current tour roster below.
