New albums from A Perfect Circle and Tool won’t arrive this year.

The news came from A Perfect Circle’s Twitter account which was responding to posts from fans.

One fan said: “Hearing rumours of a potential new A Perfect Circle album later this year” to which the band simply responded: “Not true.”

That was then followed by another fan who hoped that would mean the highly anticipated new Tool album could arrive soon. The response to that was: “Also not true.”

In March, Maynard James Keenan’s A Perfect Circle signed a record deal with BMG for their first album since 2014’s eMOTIVe.

At the time, the band’s Billy Howerdel told Billboard: “We just signed a new record deal with BMG! Looking forward to sharing new music with you soon. New APC – 2017.”

They recently wrapped up a 21-date US tour, while Keenan’s other outfit Tool are currently working on what will be their fifth studio album and recently announced a 10-date North American tour, which will kick off at the Fairfax Eaglebank Arena on May 24.
