 Los Angeles – April 30, 2018 – A Perfect Circle’s  Eat The Elephant , the Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel led rock band’s return release following a 14-year gap between new albums, debuted atop numerous Billboard charts, grabbing the #1 spot on the Rock, Independent and Alternative Albums’ charts, a #2 entry on the Top Current Albums chart (for pure album sales) and a #3 album debut on the Top 200. This is the band’s fourth consecutive studio album to have Top 5 debut on the Billboard Top 200.  The band kicked off release week with a rare fan forum, taking questions via a live-streamed Q&A from Las Vegas, which was followed on Monday by a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” performance of “TalkTalk” ( https://youtu.be/qxJYt4cUrcA ) and “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish” ( https://youtu.be/_D8am-EZmY0 ). In the midst of the release week activities, the band also announced a new round of tour dates for both the U.S. and Europe (dates below).  While  Eat The Elephant  was made available in the traditional incarnations (digital/CD, various vinyl colorways), it received a special treatment as part of a deluxe box set, with Sundance award-winning filmmaker Steven Sebring (“Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band”, “Dream of Life”) creating the world’s first hologram album. 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 box set can be ordered via the A Perfect Circle store ( https://aperfectcircle.lnk.to/ETEBoxSetPR ).  “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.”  A Perfect Circle tour dates:  May 12 Somerset, WI Northern Invasion  May 15 Omaha, NE Baxter Arena  May 16 Columbia, MO Mizzou Arena  May 18 Columbus, OH Rock on the Range  May 22 Birmingham, AL Legacy Arena at the BJCC  May 23 Southaven, MS Landers Center  May 25 Pryor, OK Rocklahoma  May 26 Dallas, TX BFD 2018 at Starplex Pavilion     June 1 Nürburgring, Germany Rock Am Ring  June 2 Nuremberg, Germany Rock Im Park  June 5 Stockholm, Sweden Fryshuset  June 6 Oslo, Norway Spektrum  June 8 Aarhus, Denmark NorthSide Festival  June 9 Helsinki, Finland Sideways Festival  June 12 Manchester, UK O2 Apollo Manchester SOLD OUT  June 13 London, UK O2 Academy Brixton SOLD OUT June 14 London, UK O2 Academy Brixton SOLD OUT  June 16 Landgraaf, Netherlands Pinkpop Festival  June 17 Berlin, Germany Zitadelle SOLD OUT  June 20 Zurich, Switzerland Halle 622  June 21 Dessel, Belgium Kastelsedijk  June 22 Clisson, France Hellfest  June 23 Esch-Sur-Aizette, Luxembourg Rockhal  June 24 Dessel, Belgium Graspop  June 26 Paris, France Olympia SOLD OUT  June 28 Madrid, Spain Download Festival Madrid  June 29 Barcelona, Spain Be Prog!
