A Perfect Circle have signed a new record deal with BMG.

It’s been 13 years since the band released their third album eMOTIVe – and with a deal now in place, founding member Billy Howerdel has confirmed that new material is in the works – and it’ll be out this year.

He tells Billboard: “We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC – 2017.”

EVP Recorded Music at BMG Jon Cohen adds: “We’re thrilled to welcome A Perfect Circle to BMG and excited to present their highly-anticipated new music to the world.

“Their uncompromising approach, vision and legion of fans have made them one of the most artistic and commercially successful acts in rock.”

Howerdel, vocalist Maynard James Keenan, guitarist and keyboardist James Iha, drummer Jeff Friedl and bassist Matt McJunkins announced a handful of tour dates in December last year. Since then, they’ve added more shows – kicking off with a three-night residency at The Pearl in Las Vegas next weekend.
