A Perfect Circle returns with quieter, enigmatic new album, "Eat the Elephant"

At least one long-awaited Maynard James Keenan project has arrived. A Perfect Circle, led by Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel, releases a new album today called Eat the Elephant, the follow-up to 2004's eMOTIVe. On the music side, Eat the Elephant presents a quieter, softer APC -- a sound that was influenced by a new songwriting approach from Howerdel. "A big differentiating factor was writing most of these songs on keyboard or piano," Howerdel tells ABC Radio. "I've always gravitated towards the guitar, but in 2014, I purposefully decided to put it down, try and find a different avenue of…
