A PERFECT CIRCLE has released a 2D clip of the song “The Contrarian”, taken from the band’s recently released recently released album, “Eat The Elephant”. Footage in the video is taken from the Steven Sebring-directed (“Horses: Patti Smith And Her Band”, “Dream Of Life”) companion film for “Eat The Elephant”. The clip is part of an album-length film viewable via a prism included in the “Eat The Elephant” deluxe box set.
“It is very much a combined experience of the tactile and the visual,” said singer Maynard James Keenan in a recent interview with Billboard magazine regarding the hologram film. “I come from an era where the physical pieces of music were something that you cherished… Something like this brings back that visual excitement for people.”
“Eat The Elephant” debuted atop numerous Billboard charts, grabbing the No. 1 spot on the Rock, Independent and Alternative Albums charts, a No. 2 entry on the Top Current Albums chart (for pure album sales) and a No. 3 album debut on the Top 200. This is the band’s fourth consecutive Top 5 debut on the Billboard 200.
A PERFECT CIRCLE has added several new shows to its month-long North American trek, including an appearance at this year’s Voodoo Music + Arts Experience as well as headlining dates in Baltimore, Detroit and more. Tickets for the newly added headlining dates are on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
A PERFECT CIRCLE is in the middle of its first European tour since 2004. The band plays three consecutive, sold-out shows in the U.K. beginning tomorrow night in Manchester.
