Frontman Maynard James Keenan (Tool) said following about the album:

“Although I’m extremely excited to finally be completing this album after a 14-year hiatus, I’m actually more excited that its intentional release date is serving a greater purpose. The 20th of April is Carina Round’s birthday. She is a dear friend who is extremely difficult to shop for. Pressure off. Of course, I must also note that the potheads are gonna be thrilled that this album comes out on 4-20. May it serve as a glorious soundtrack to accompany all of the giggling and vexing sounds of nibbling and snacking. Fingers crossed, Cheech & Chong will be proud.”

Billy Howerdel Says A Perfect Circle Are Several Weeks Away From Finishing Their New Album

A Perfect Circle‘s Billy Howerdel recently discussed the band’s new album progress on Two Hours With Matt Pinfield and confirmed it should be done within the next several weeks. The effort is tentatively set for a quarter two release (April-June).

Howerdel said the following:

“We are gonna be finished imminently. I’d say in the next several weeks we will be done with this record. But everything exponentially happened quicker and quicker towards the end. I think we’re just getting my studio back on from being on the road.”

“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.”

A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel Continues To Defend No Filming Policy: “We Would Like You To Be With Us, Present”

A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel has once again commented on the band’s no filming policy during an interview with DOMKcast. You can see what he had to say below.


“There’s many reasons why—I think everyone can figure it out—why we would have that kind of policy. I mean, I get why you wanna take a memento of the moment. I’ve done it myself. If I go to a show and they ask for… I’ve gone to plays. I don’t know if guys have gone to a play. You never take out your phone, take a video or take a picture in a play; you’re gonna get booted.

Why is that any different at a rock show? And why is it any different to not be rude sticking your phone up in front of the face of the person behind you. And then, at the other side of it, we would like you to be with us, present. We’re with you, present—full-focused, wholeheartedly. For that one moment in time—90 minutes or 100 minutes—we’re giving every… every calorie available to us is spent to be together, so we ask you to join us there.”

A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel On No Filming Policy: “People Talking About The Show Is So Much More Powerful”

A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel recently commented on the band’s no filming policy during an interview with the Montreal Gazette. You can see what he had to say about that below.


“First of all, it’s just rude. Putting up a phone in front of someone’s face so they get to watch the show through it? Getting a memento of the show — sure, I’ve done it myself. But then you ask, ‘What am I gonna do with this?’

But the other point is, people talking about the show is so much more powerful. We’re inundated with videos and images, and getting back to a campfire conversation, letting people express how they felt in the experience — it says something more.

And it speaks to, what does the music mean to you, and how do you want to tether it to your experiences in your life?”

More Than 60 Fans Ejected From A Perfect Circle Show For Violating No Photo/Video Policy, Maynard James Keenan Says To “Unplug And Enjoy The Ride”

It should be well known by now that all of Maynard James Keenan‘s bands, Tool, Puscifer, and A Perfect Circle, have a no photos/filming policy at live shows. However, this has recently come to light again after A Perfect Circle‘s November 4 show at the Santander Arena in Reading, PA, in which over 60 people were ejected for using their phones.


The venue’s general manager, David Farrar said the following about that:

“talk to Manyard.. [sic] this was 110% the bands policy and has been for TOOL, APC, and Pusicifer.. [sic] it’s not a new policy.”

Keenan also responded to a fan on Instagram about it as well:

“No. Recording. Of. Any. Kind. For. 25. Years. Guided experience. Unplug and and enjoy the ride.”
