Furthermore, Howerdel also has an as-yet untitled solo album in the works, the first single from which has been revealed to be “Poison Flowers“. That track is set to debut on March 04th through Alchemy Recordings/BMG and can be pre-saved here. A teaser for it has been shared in advance below.

Speaking of what fans can expect from his forthcoming album, Howerdel offered, “This new album was birthed while on tour with A Perfect Circle. A weird blend of confidence, vulnerability and mortality urgently compelled me to write a letter of sorts in the form of an album.”
