BMG has officially added rock group A Perfect Circle to their roster, as the band inks a worldwide recording deal. It's been 13 years since the supergroup released their last album, 2004's eMOTIVe. Now the band -- consisting of original members Billy Howerdel (of Ashes Divide) and Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer), as well as the more newly added James Iha (The Smashing Pumpkins), Jeff Friedl (Devo/The Beta Machine) and Matt McJunkins (Eagles of Death Metal/The Beta Machine) -- is also currently working on a new LP.
Excited by the news, Howerdel announced "We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC-2017!" Jon Cohen, EVP Recorded Music at BMG, joined in on the celebration: “We’re thrilled to welcome A Perfect Circle to BMG and excited to present their highly-anticipated new music to the world. Their uncompromising approach, vision and legion of fans have made them one of the most artistic and commercially successful acts in rock.”
