Sept. 17, 2013, LOS ANGELES – A Perfect Circle, the multi-platinum rock band helmed by Maynard James Keenan (TOOL, Puscifer) and Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide), issue THREE SIXTY, the outfit’s first greatest hits collection, via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) on Nov. 19.

The release also includes A Perfect Circle’s first new original, studio recording in a decade with the inclusion of By And Down,a song written after the band returned from their self-imposed hiatus for a series of live performances throughout 2010 and 2011.

“Billy and I created A Perfect Circle out of a now long-running friendship, and I think the music we have made reflects that personal connection and has given us the ability to further develop and trust our intuition,” explained Keenan.  “I feel THREE SIXTY is an accurate representation of that friendship and those instincts.”

A Perfect Circle formed in the late ‘90s with Keenan and Howerdel making up the core of the band with a number of well-known musicians having recorded and/or toured with the outfit including James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure), Paz Lenchantin (Entrance Band, Zwan), Jeordie White (Marilyn Manson), Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo) and Tim Alexander (Primus).

The band released their first album, Mer de Noms in 2000, which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 and quickly established the group as one of rock music’s biggest bands of the new millennium.  Following extensive international touring, A Perfect Circle began work on Thirteenth Step which saw a late 2003 release and landed at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 in its debut week.

The outfit’s third release, a covers’ album titled eMOTIVe, was released on Election Day 2004 and featured re-imagined versions of songs by a varied group of artists including John Lennon, Black Flag, Joni Mitchell and Devo. Following the release of eMOTIVe, Keenan and Howerdel focused on their individual projects with Keenan working on TOOL’s 10,000 Days and launching the multimedia electro-rock outfit Puscifer and Howerdel creating Ashes Divide.  A Perfect Circle has sold over five million albums worldwide.
