A Perfect Circle Announce New Album, Release New Song

  • Axl Rosenberg

We knew this was coming, but now it’s officially official: in 2018, A Perfect Circle will release their first studio album of new, original material in fifteen years. Entitled Eat the Elephant, it will be out April 20, which feels entirely appropriate.

Here are the two different versions of the album cover, one for the CD (left) and one for the LP (right)…


…and here’s a new cut off the record, “Talktalk.” It sounds like a perfect hybrid of 2003’s The Thirteenth Step and 2000’s slightly heavier/moodier predecessor, Mer de Noms. As a bonus, the chorus is a perversion of an old Bangles classic. That probably wasn’t intentional, but I still enjoyed it.

Other tracks on Eat the Elephant will include the previously-released “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned.” You can pre-order it here. Upcoming APC tour dates on multiple continents are below.
