Hear ‘By And Down,’ The New Song From A Perfect Circle

A Perfect Circle, Music


A Perfect Circle kicked off their summer tour (or what the band has announced to be the official eMOTIVe tour) in Portland, OR last night. The band, currently consisting of Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel, James Iha, Matt McJunkins, and Jeff Friedl, played a varied 18-song set in Portlandia, with material from all three of their records. The surprise of the night, however, was the last song of the set: A new track titled By And Down, the name of which was confirmed by a setlist held up by Howerdel during the show.

Considering that A Perfect Circle (and mostly every other Maynard-based project) has very strict filming policies, a high-quality fan recording of the show may be unlikely, but you can still listen to the captivating and inspired new song below, in all its lo-fi glory.

Keenan, in many interviews promoting the APC tour, had confirmed that the band may or may not debut new songs during this leg of the tour. It is likely that more material is on the way as well, as in a recent interview with SPIN, the prolific frontman hesitantly announced that they may release “a track or two” in the near future. And if all that isn’t enough, Puscifer will also be releasing its second full-length studio album, Conditions Of My Parole, on October 18th,

    Sounds like something that shoulda been on Thirteenth Step.

    Odd how maynard can seem prolific despite only releasing a new album every 4/5 years

    • JT says:

      He is prolific due to his many projects, too bad you are so narrow minded as to only think of him being the front man for only one band.

  3. […] you wait for December to roll around, have a listen to the newest material we have from the band, a new song called By and Down, which was premiered on tour last Summer. Also check out our most recent interview with the band. […]
