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

I destroyed my first iPod whilst flying in a go cart! Not my fault! Some prick made me smash into a wall but flying to Rose was epic and will stand out to me for the rest of my life because of that experience! Rocknroll!!! lol

Umm, would an epic creator allow mere mortals to add protons to cores of uranium particles that have to be weighed out in order to find the right kind of unstable atoms? And then allow nazis via invasion of France to mine radium in order to gain access to this uranium? Forcing scientists from Germany and Poland to build a bomb and drop it in Mexico, and again in Japan? Your god who is a person in the sky, did this? Allowed us to do it bc he hates sinners? Nonsensical rhetoric.

The earth being 'held'? On the back of atlas right? Or, when the earth and moon formed, the moon slowed the rotation of the earth, enough so that life could start, here, on this dirt planet. And what about the 65 million years between the dinosaurs and man? What was god up to then? Or cloaking Christmas and Easter behind the most celebrated pagan holidays? Ugh, but now because things are sins to you, rational thought is out the window. Was god punishing New Orleans bc of the gays? If you answer

Who? You keep using man-made definitions to describe something infinitely more impressive than a mans form wearing sandals and a white robe right?

Who created the force that press the structures of the atoms together in the absence of air in which formation begins. Who's attributes are wise or knowledgeabl e enough to start with dust and mend organics to it to sustain life. Who holds the Earth in position where life can exist... Science is man's study of things that God has already created...Sc i e n c e holds value to the things that can be proven and state them as fact. With that being said why do so many hold value to the THEORIES of science.

Following peers and family? Again you don't know me ...Stop assuming. It makes you look uneducated.. . . J u s t say'n, and yes sightly homophobic.. . I was molested at the age of 11...You can Love people (even gay people) without agreeing to their life style. The act of homosexual sin is sick JUST AS SICK AS THE SIN IN MY OWN LIFE...

savethissw.. . D u d e let's see you recreate life with science...Ca n ' t be done ....assuming my background is as ludicrous as your beliefs...I have a Bachelors in Science. I taken Inorganic ,both Organics and Biochemistry . There is nothing in science to disprove Christ, in fact life, molecules and the physics behind living things and the properties that hold moving objects together in place without coming apart and exploding is epic and can only be explained by a detailed creator..

Indiana, you are the epitome of control and misinformati o n . Actually, complicated structures in atoms are formed by pressures of time and space in vacuums, and not an imaginary hand squishing snowballs of life together. You are biased, misinformed, and wrong due to a life of following myopic peers and family, I'm sorry, join the real world, humans have the power to change things for the better bc of their intention, not bc they sat around praying for change.

Rejecting science by a texted com'on man...
Report as inappropriate
God created Science savthissw... The mysteries of the UNIVERSE are held together by physical properties God has sustained. He has set things in motion and satellites only exist in orbit because of the forces in play, governing bodies ( Sun ,Moon, Earth) and such. Atoms, electrons are an intelligent design. Have you ever look at a bacteria or protozoa cell under an electron microscope. were the flagellum meets the cell wall resembles a rotary engine, now that's design not happenstance . . .

People who misinterpret tool or apc probably think 'the life of Brian' is about Jesus. Its like how satellites and controlled electrons used in texting get used by Christians to reject science and logic.
