A Perfect Circle drop a new single after 14 years
Pop Culture
After radio silence for nearly 14 years, A Perfect Circle's new single "The Doomed" is now available for purchase. The band had teased the release on social media prior to dropping the new single. This release will satiate the thirst of fans clamouring for a new release from the band, which might happen sometime in 2018.

"The Doomed" carries the signature Perfect Circle sound opening with a busy drum section which slowly builds to the song's first verse, Maynard James Kennan sounds as fresh as ever, delivering the lines "Behold a new Christ, Behold the same old horde, Gather at the altering, New beginning, new world" with his trademark croon. The song then switches to a mid-tempo marching section before segueing into a melodic chorus. This framework is repeated till the end of the song.

"14 years have passed since we released eMOTIVe," said Maynard in a statement issued to the press "A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder."

"Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment," guitarist Billy Howerdel added. "We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we're on."

The song takes aim at the current political and social climate, "The Doomed" that the song calls out are the meek downtrodden set to be trampled under the weight of their new masters.

It's refreshing to hear Keenan's trademark croon after a long absence, the rest of the band seems to be on top of their game as well and if this song is any indication about we can expect from the new album, we are in for a treat.
