A PERFECT CIRCLE has a 2D clip of “TalkTalk”, taken from the Steven Sebring-directed (“Horses: Patti Smith And Her Band”, “Dream Of Life”) companion film for the band’s recently released album, “Eat The Elephant”.
“It is very much a combined experience of the tactile and the visual. 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,” said Maynard James Keenan in a recent interview with Billboard regarding the hologram film. The 58-minute hologram, which unfolds through the eyes of a young girl over the 12-song album arc, reveals itself when fans place the prism on their smartphones and enter a special code. The prism is part of the “Eat The Elephant” deluxe box set, which can be purchased via the band’s webstore.
“Having Maynard and Billy‘s trust to create this for A PERFECT CIRCLE was a true artist’s dream,” said Sebring. “Their 14-year break allowed technology to catch up with their groundbreaking music and gave me the chance to apply new ideas of dimensional capture to this stunning album.”
“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 is in the midst of their first leg of U.S. tour dates in support of the 12-song album, having recently played Rock On The Range and Northern Invasion. The band heads to Europe in June for its first extensive tour of the continent since 2004.
