Eat the Elephant is out April 20—listen to new song “TalkTalk”
A Perfect Circle have announced their next studio album. The follow-up to 2004’s eMOTIVe is titled Eat the Elephant, and it arrives April 20 via BMG. Listen to new song “TalkTalk” below; find APC’s upcoming tour schedule at their website. Rumors of a new full-length from the group flared up last March, when it was announced that they’d signed a new record deal with BMG and were “looking forward to sharing new music.” That announcement was followed by denials, and a subsequent tour announcement. The new album features “Feathers,” a new song that they debuted on the road, and their singles “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned.” Along with the announcement, frontman Maynard James Keenan shared the following statement: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.
