The band have already debuted two new songs on their recent tour dates, “Feathers” and “Hourglass,” which reportedly display a distinct vibe from APC’s past material found on 2004’s eMOTIVe, 2003’s Thirteenth Step and 2000’s Mer De Noms. (via Metal Injection)
However, as revealed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the group’s forthcoming record might go in a completely different direction.
AJC’s interview with A Perfect Circle guitarist Billy Howerdel mentions that the new album could be “a big departure from the first record and is influenced by a more Depeche Mode, electronic and ‘dance-y’ sound like material from the late ’70s and ’80s.”
Howerdel also claims the new APC record will be out within 12 months. (As AP previously reported, the band recently signed with BMG for the album.)
“You can’t say, ‘hurry up, create.’ It’s like performing in the bedroom. For the most part intimacy and true emotion come from a natural place and you can’t force it. It has to come from chemistry and that’s what we’re trying to do.”
