A Perfect Circle’s Eat The Elephant, the Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel led rock band’s return release following a 14-year gap between new albums, debuted atop numerous Billboard charts, grabbing the #1 spot on the Rock, Independent and Alternative Albums’ charts, a #2 entry on the Top Current Albums chart (for pure album sales) and a #3 album debut on the Top 200. This is the band’s fourth consecutive studio album to have Top 5 debut on the Billboard Top 200.

The band kicked off release week with a rare fan forum, taking questions via a live-streamed Q&A from Las Vegas, which was followed on Monday by a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” performance of “TalkTalk” (https://youtu.be/qxJYt4cUrcA) and “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish” (https://youtu.be/_D8am-EZmY0). In the midst of the release week activities, the band also announced a new round of tour dates for both the U.S. and Europe (dates below).

While Eat The Elephant was made available in the traditional incarnations (digital/CD, various vinyl colorways), it received a special treatment as part of a deluxe box set, with Sundance award-winning filmmaker Steven Sebring (“Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band”, “Dream of Life”) creating the world’s first hologram album. The 58-minute hologram, which unfolds through the eyes of a young girl over the 12-song album arc, reveals itself when fans place the prism on their smartphones and enter a special code. The box set can be ordered via the A Perfect Circle store (https://aperfectcircle.lnk.to/ETEBoxSetPR).

“Having Maynard and Billy’s trust to create this for A Perfect Circle was a true artist’s dream,” said Sebring. “Their 14-year break allowed technology to catch up with their groundbreaking music and gave me the chance to apply new ideas of dimensional capture to this stunning album.”
