Although he won’t be touring with A PERFECT CIRCLE, guitarist James Iha was still part of the recording sessions for “Eat The Elephant”. According to The Pulse Of Radio, an article in Guitar World chronicles the making of the long-awaited LP, mentioning that Iha, bassist Matt McJunkins and drummer Jeff Friedl all assisted in the making of the record after being part of the lineup for years.
Iha, however, has had to drop out of touring with the band due to the recently announced SMASHING PUMPKINS reunion trek. Iha will be replaced on the road by FAILURE guitarist Greg Edwards.
