February 5th, 2018

American alternative rock group A Perfect Circle issue fourth full-length studio album Eat The Elephant on April 20th, 2018 through BMG.

The outing was co-produced by Dave Sardy.

Frontman Maynard James Keenan commented: “Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe. A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder.”

Guitarist Billy Howerdel added: “Demos are these precious ideas that you love in their initial state. Then you collaborate, invite other ideas, and watch them progress. That’s the dynamics and growth of a great record. I feel we’ve made a great record.”

The track listing is as follows;

01. ‘Eat The Elephant’
02. ‘Disillusioned’
03. ‘The Contrarian’
04. ‘The Doomed’
05. ‘So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish’

07. ‘By And Down The River’
08. ‘Delicious’
