LINK - In a recent interview, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan announced that he and Bill Howerdel have begun to work on new material for A Perfect Circle, however a full album accompanied by a headlining tour is probably not in the cards. Instead, Keenan and Howerdel plan on working on several songs at a time and to release them online, rather than investing resources "into making those plastic discs that no one cares about anymore." Fine by me.
A Perfect Circle had been on hiatus since the 2004 release of 'eMOTIVe'. Based on Keenan's commitments to Tool, as well as his other side projects, it's unlikely that this re-iteration of A Perfect Circle will match the scope of their 2000-2004 existence.
