A Perfect Circle Release New Slow-Burning Song ‘By And Down’
A Perfect Circle, a supergroup of dour metal heroes made up of Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, guitarist Billy Howerdel and friends, are about to put out a greatest hits comp titled Three Sixty this coming November 18. Included on the 13-track (or 19 tracks deluxe) gathering of APC songs is a new tune the band wrote during their 2010-2011 tour titled “By and Down.” It’s a five-and-a-half-minute melodic minor-key dirge “Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility.” Hear the emotive, slow build over at SPIN.
APC also plan to digitally release their sold-out box set collection, A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone and Echo. The box contains live performances of all three of their studio albums — Mer de Noms (2000), Thirteenth Step (2003), eMOTIVe (2004) — a DVD of a 2011 performance at Red Rocks.
