A Perfect Circle Anounces 'Three Sixty,' a Greatest Hits Collection
A Perfect Circle, the multi-platinum rock band helmed by Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer) and Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide), issue "Three Sixty," the outfit's first greatest hits collection, via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) on Nov. 19. The release also includes A Perfect Circle's first new original, studio recording in a decade with the inclusion of "By and Down," a song written after the band returned from their self-imposed hiatus for a series of live performances throughout 2010 and 2011. "Billy and I created A Perfect Circle out of a now long-running friendship, and I think the music we have made reflects that personal connection and has given us the ability to further develop and trust our intuition," explained Keenan. "Feel 'Three Sixty' is an accurate representation of that friendship and those instincts." A Perfect Circle formed in the late '90s with Keenan and Howerdel making up the core of the band with a number of well-known musicians having recorded and/or toured with the outfit including James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure), Paz Lenchantin (Entrance Band, Zwan), Jeordie White (Marilyn Manson), Josh Freese (the Vandals, Devo) and Tim Alexander (Primus). The band released their first album, Mer de Noms in 2000, which debuted in the Top 5 on BillboardтАЩs Top 200 and quickly established the group as one of rock musicтАЩs biggest bands of the new millennium. Following extensive international touring, A Perfect Circle began work on Thirteenth Step which saw a late 2003 release and landed at #2 on BillboardтАЩs Top 200 in its debut week. The outfitтАЩs third release, a coversтАЩ album titled eMOTIVe, was released on Election Day 2004 and featured re-imagined versions of songs by a varied group of artists including John Lennon, Black Flag, Joni Mitchell and Devo. Following the release of eMOTIVe, Keenan and Howerdel focused on their individual projects with Keenan working on TOOLтАЩs 10,000 Days and launching the multimedia electro-rock outfit Puscifer and Howerdel creating Ashes Divide. A Perfect Circle has sold over five million albums worldwide. A Perfect Circle also recently announced the release of a limited edition box set titled A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone And Echo. The collection, which focuses on the bandтАЩs live outings from 2010-2011 includes a full-length DVD of the outfitтАЩs August 2011 Red RockтАЩs concert (with accompanying audio) as well as a 3-cd collection of live releases, one dedicated to each of the three studio albums from the bandтАЩs discography. The collection is available on Nov. 26, with more information available via A Perfect CircleтАЩs Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aperfectcircle).
