A Perfect Circle return to Verizon, six years after they delivered a snore-inducing set filled with lifeless cover songs. Here's to hoping for something better, as the band prepares to release a new album of original material in the near future. The Maynard James Keenan-fronted band remains the project of guitarist Billy Howerdel, and has a rotating cast of members. The current lineup includes former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, along with drummer Jeff Friedl and bassist Matt McJunkins. Their first two proper albums have plenty of mystery, warmth and colors that the members' other bands do not explore, and the songs are much more direct. That in itself is reason enough to check out the band live. Just hope they don't play their interpretation of John Lennon's "Imagine."

Promotional Event Description

Formed by Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan and former Tool guitar tech Billy Howerdel, A Perfect Circle is an extension of the alt-metal-fused-with-art rock style popularized by Tool in the early to mid-'90s. While similar to Tool in intensity and melancholy, A Perfect Circle is less dark and more melodic, with a theatrical, ambient quality that incorporates occasional strings and unusual instrumentation.
