A Perfect Circle announced a major fall North American tour. The 28-date trek launches October 21st at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California and concludes December 4th in Eugene, Oregon.
Tickets for all non-festival shows go on sale Friday, June 23rd at 10 a.m. local time. More details are available at the band's official site.
The alt-metal quintet recently wrapped a sold-out spring tour – their first U.S. run in six years – which featured the live debut of new songs "Feathers" and "Hourglass." In January, upon announcing those shows, the band also revealed that they'd started work on their first studio album since 2004's eMOTIVe. In a statement, guitarist Billy Howerdel enthused, "Getting back to writing music with A Perfect Circle is a great way to start the new year." The band has yet to announce their fourth LP, tentatively planned for a 2017 release.
Howerdel has been working on new material for several years. In a 2013 Alternative Nation interview, the guitarist said he had "75 percent" of the next album "ready to go," though frontman Maynard James Keenan hadn't become involved in the process.
"All those things can change and get ripped up, or maybe stay the same," he said. "He might just sing over them the way they are, and then I’ll tighten them up from there. Time will tell, in the beginning of the band that’s the way it was. I had songs that were pretty well realized, and Maynard sang on them. Who knows, it could go back to that or we could find a different direction."
