The long wait for a new album from A Perfect Circle may finally be coming to a close.
Guitarist Billy Howerdel said on the show 2 Hours With Matt Pinfield that the band’s fourth studio LP was going to be finished “imminently,” adding, “I’d say in the next several weeks we will be done with this record . . . We are certainly past the half way point and I’d say Maynard’s probably further along than I am musically. At least with the finished tracks. The songs are there but there’s tidying up to do there on some stuff there.”
Howerdel said the band was planning to do some more recording in a Hollywood studio, one of several facilities in Los Angeles where work has been done on the LP.
He maintained that the disc would arrive in the second quarter of this year, somewhere between April and June. The last A Perfect Circle studio effort, eMOTIVe, arrived in 2004.
