James Iha To Sit Out A Perfect Circle’s Upcoming Touring, Replacement Announced


When A Perfect Circle hit the road for their spring/summer touring this year, they will do so without guitarist James Iha. Iha will instead be joining his Smashing Pumpkins bandmates on the road for a reunion tour. In light his absence, the band have recruited Failure, etc. bassist Greg Edwards to fill-in. They commented:

“As you most likely have heard, James Iha‘s original band, the Smashing Pumpkins, have announced a Summer tour that James will be taking part in. Because James will be busy gearing up for that tour he won’t be able to join us for our upcoming tour dates. James‘ temporary replacement will be none other than our longtime friend and one of our favorite guitar players, Greg Edwards (Failure/Autolux). We want to reiterate that this is a temporary situation and James remains a part of A Perfect Circle.”
