A Perfect Circle To Play Comerica Theatre in July

Looks like last fall's string of tour dates (including two nights at Marquee Theatre, which our own Mike Meyer covered) has invigorated the long-inactive A Perfect Circle, as the band has dropped news of a North American tour set for this summer, including a stop at Comerica Theatre on July 25th.

A Perfect Circle is the brainchild of guitarist Billy Howerdel and Arizona winemaker Maynard James Keenan of Tool and Puscifer, and includes a who's who of modern rock musicians like James Iha (formerly of the Smashing Pumpkins), Josh Freese (Weezer, Devo) and Matt McJunkins (Puscifer).

The band has stated that new material is in the works, so perhaps all this increased productivity hints toward a new album?
