Last month, A Perfect Circle announced a limited-edition live CD/DVD box set, Live: Featuring Stone and Echo. But after quickly selling out of all 2,500 copies, the band has decided to release the audio and video components in digital format, due out November 26th.
The Stone and Echo DVD features a full-length concert of the band’s August 2011 performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater. The band will also release a Stone and Echo audio companion set (including a live performance of new track “By and Down”), along with three other live albums (Mer De Noms Live, Thirteenth Step Live and eMOTIVe Live) which feature full-album performances from 2010. These concerts found the band reunited after a five-year hiatus.
“Some of the songs we haven’t played in eight to 10 years,” frontman Maynard James Keenan recently told Rolling Stone about the box set. “Some of them we hadn’t played at all. In the box that you have, you have those three CDs, and then you have us live at Red Rocks. Always fun to play Red Rocks.”
Also on the table for A Perfect Circle is a greatest hits package, Three Sixty, due November 19th. Available in both standard and deluxe format, the album features the exclusive studio version of “By and Down.”
