MAKE UP YOUR MIND, A PERFECT CIRCLE
I didn’t think A Perfect Circle could get more irritating than when they released (e)Motive, but they’re going out of their way to prove me wrong. First they split up, and then they got back together, and then, just two months and four shows into their reunion run, they seemed to split up again. And now there’s this tweet, which more than implies that, no, all is well and good in APC land:
Now, in all fairness, the tweet that originally suggested that APC were back on “hiatus” didn’t actually say the band was dunzo — just that the 2010 tour was done. Which it was. Although it did say “Back to work on Ashes Divide,” guitarist Billy Howerdel’s other project (basically a Maynard-less APC), which, y’know, outright states that there’s no current work being done on APC.
So, yeah, this shit is getting confusing. Maybe it means we’re getting a tour, but no new album? I guess I would take that — as long as the set list sticks mostly to material from Mers de Noms and Thirteenth Step, that is.
Anyways, here are dates the band has already announced, courtesy Metal Insider:
May 21-22 (which day not confirmed yet) Columbus, OH-Columbus Crew Statdium (Rock On The Range)
July 2 Gibbons, AB, Canada – Boonstock
July 9 Toronto, ON, Canada – Downsview Park (Edgefest)
More details as we get ’em…
