A PERFECT CIRCLE have released a brand new song called “Disillusioned”, from the band’s forthcoming album.
Back in October, A PERFECT CIRCLE released the song song “The Doomed” along with an official music video for the track that was directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn.
“Disillusioned” stands in stark contrast to “The Doomed”, which felt “apocalyptic” (Rolling Stone) and the track’s video was “eerie” and “intense” (Revolver). “Disillusioned” strikes a more optimistic tone, urging listeners to connect with each other once again.
“‘The Doomed’ was a rude wake-up call… apologies if you were sleeping peacefully,” said guitarist Billy Howerdel of the tone of the bombastic song. “‘Disillusioned’ comes from a place of overcoming the slide into the numb. It speaks to reconnection and a fresh start to a new year.”
Addressing the musicality of the song, which echoes the sentiment of unity, singer Maynard James Keenan said: “Attempting new approaches to composing can be intimidating. Especially with an established project with such a recognizable sound. But sometimes you just gotta take the first swing. Only way to grow.”
You can now pre-order a limited-edition dual-groove 10-inch vinyl with the new songs “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned”. Included is an instant digital download of both songs. The 10-inch vinyl will be released on March 9. The estimated delivery date is March 9 for U.S. orders. International delivery times will vary (will not arrive on release date). If you order multiple items, your order will remain on hold until everything is in stock.
A PERFECT CIRCLE recently announced it had signed a worldwide recording deal with BMG and is in the studio working with producer Dave Sardy on the follow-up to “eMOTIVe”.
The band’s lineup remains unchanged from 2013. Joining Keenan and Howerdel once again are James Iha on rhythm guitar, Matt McJunkins on bass and Jeff Friedl on drums.
