A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel Reveals Progress With Band’s New Album


A Perfect Circle mastermind Billy Howerdel was recently interviewed by The Tulsa Voice and shared his and his bandmates progress with the group’s new album, which they hope to have in stores later this year. To that end the band recently signed a deal with BMG for its release. As to how far he is with the album now, he offered:

“I’m working on it right now. It’s getting all the stars to align, with our schedules, that’s going to make it possible… If all goes [according] to plan, we should see it in 2017.”

When asked if he was handling the production, he replied:

“So far I’ve just been working by myself. Literally, been in my room with no one else around working on these songs. I send mixes off to Maynard on a server and he’s been working on them in his isolation. Then we’re going to get together next month and combine where we’re holding these ideas, then get in a room and get with the band, play them in a live setting and see what happens with the human element that comes into the picture.

I’m waiting for some feedback—some of Maynard’s ideas. We tracked years ago. I’m getting very anxious and curious to see where Maynard is at with things. Right now, I have the songs in demo form but they’re easily finishable, but he’s sending me down different paths and has asked me to take out my scissors and cut them into different shapes and paste them back on a page. We can be in the same room but we just happen to be communicating about the same track—just in different parts of the country.”

The band’s spring touring has just kicked off and continues tonight (April 07th) in Las Vegas, NV, dates can be found here.
