A Perfect Circle has just revealed that Eat The Elephant will be the title for their upcoming new album and that it is scheduled to drop on April 20th via BMG. This album is home to the first two previous singles, “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned” and now the band has shared “TalkTalk” as their third single. Vocalist Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel shared their thoughts on the release date as well as the overall growth of the record.
“Although I’m extremely excited to finally be completing this album after a 14-year hiatus. I’m actually more excited that its intentional release date is serving a greater purpose. The 20th of April is Carina Round’s birthday. She is a dear friend who is extremely difficult to shop for. Pressure off. Of course, I must also note that the potheads are gonna be thrilled that this album comes out on 4-20. May it serve as a glorious soundtrack to accompany all of the giggling and vexing sounds of nibbling and snacking. Fingers crossed, Cheech & Chong will be proud.”
“Demos are these precious ideas that you love in their initial state,” adds Howerdel. “Then you collaborate, invite other ideas, and watch them progress. That’s the dynamics and growth of a great record. I feel we’ve made a great record.”
The album consists of 12 tracks, the track listing of which can be viewed below.
- Eat The Elephant
- The Contrarian
- The Doomed
- So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish
