A Perfect Circle is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, consisting of Billy Howerdel and Maynard James Keenan, alongside James Iha, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl.
Formed in 1999, the band released their debut album, ‘Mer de Noms’ in 2000, which hit #4 in the Billboard Hot 200. Their second album, ‘Thirteenth Step’ came out in 2003 and performed even better in the chart, reaching #2. Their last album, ‘Emotive’, was released in 2004 and also reach the top 2, before the band disbanded.
A Perfect Circle have returned from hibernation with new album, 'Eat The Elephant', which hit shelves in April 2018. They accompany the release with a brace of UK and European shows in June 2018, and will follow these up with winter shows in Glasgow, Manchester and London, as well as more across Europe. Greg Edwards from Failure and Autolux will fill in for James Iha, who will be busy touring the US with the Smashing Pumpkins.
A Perfect Circle also tour the US later in the year too. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

Many critics don't put much stock into dissecting album art, but it's tricky to talk about 'Eat the Elephant', California supergroup A Perfect Circle's first album in 14 years, without at least a passing reference to its sleeve. Fronted by an Uncle Fester-esque character cradling an octopus, the ostentatious cover will trigger a gut response from anyone who grew up listening to angsty alternative rock in the early 2000s.
