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

Guntle311 is a complete f*g perfect circle this is the first time I've heard this song and it kicks a** just like anyother apc or tool song
so my spelling is a bit sketchy-you get the point-hopefu l l y . . .
I've been to a lot of metal cincerts in my time,black metal,metalc o r e , g r i n d c o r e , s t o n e r ; s rock , etc. and most everyone has great manners,exod u s concerts can be a bit rowdy and you smeel the plant but no band brings out the druggies like tool.kids and old kids trying so hard to get f**ked up and at the end of the concert watching the lightshow and going wheeeeeee like a bunch of stinky deadheads. but what you from a band leader who builds wine companies as a hobby.
Shut up
dam bullshit music if ask me
What about jordi white? From manson. He has been the unofficial bass player for ever
A Perfect Circle, or as i see it, the extension to tool.
Damn their amazing!!! :3
I could not possibly love this song anymore that I already do!

Peace, love & understandin g
Hunt776: I'm jealous. That show sold out so damn fast. I'm fortunate to have seen them before. I refuse to pay scalper prices for this show.
100% agreement. MJK will go down in music history as one of the most amazing, ingenious, revolutionar y , talented artists ever. If you haven't seen TOOL Live do yourself a favor and get to one of these upcoming shows. Got my Tix for my 8th show. PDX 3/6/14. Tool, APC, Pucifer....o p e r a t i n g on such a higher, more complex, beautiful plateau than anyone else since pink floyd.
Bu am down no easy mission!
Maynard is a legend. He will be up there with Jimi Hendrix and bob Marley.
APC. cant describe their amazing music.

Cant stand some of these comments , like how can you say that tools lyrics sound like they are written by a 15 year old? Obviously your not looking into the deeper meaning the genius of a mind maynard was singing about
The hollow by perfect circle.
I looooove this song!!!!!!!

A Perfect Circle is possibly one of the best bands in the world, next to Tool and SOAD.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
I LOVE A PERFECT CIRCLE!!
My favorites: The Package, The Nurse That Loved Me, Annihilation , Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums, Blue, 3 Libras, Rose and The Outsider. (But they all are awesome anyways!!)
Three comments under me: I think APC is perfectly capable of playing any song they want! They may sound like Tool at times, but I'm pretty sure it's APC =P
APC is Tool with hair. Maynard is the man.
Musical Genius...... . . . . . .
i seriously think that this is tool playing the music, n not APC. they cant play like this. only tool ladies n gents...
Good song, but the Danny Lohner version is better
Bad a** guitar and song overall!
