I’m sure it’s a complete coincidence that the first A Perfect Circle album in 14 years is set for release on 4/20. Yep, a total freak of calendrical karma.
Not so, says Maynard James Keenan.
“Although I’m extremely excited to finally be completing this album after a 14-year hiatus,” explains Keenan. “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.”
Now the obvious question: What does this mean for the Tool album we’re supposed to get before the end of the year?
