That’s the plan, according to Billboard. A Perfect Circle will likely not release a full-length LP, instead releasing songs as they’re written, a la Smashing Pumpkins. And we all know how well that turned out for Billy Corgan.
A different Billy, Billy Howerdel, tells Billboard that “right now the intention is not to put out a (full album) but just to release some songs along the way, and then they might be re-imagined and put together in some collection. If you need to have an album then there will be something more like a photo album where you collect these things and you put them in.”
OK, I can dig that shit. Just like I dig half-Japanese girls with D’s. Man, I am smitten…from ONE PICTURE! If this reference is lost on you, see the post before this on Fred Durst.
“If we were prepared to do a 12-to-18 month campaign and do a new record and new tour, that’s a little different and we’d approach it a little differently,” says Billy. “But with Maynard‘s commitments to other projects, I don’t think it’s possible, or it’s certainly not in the future.”
Billy says A Perfect Circle has no label dictating their moves, and “a freedom to release things as we want. We don’t have a record deal anymore. We don’t have a record company backing us and financially funding a record or a tour and getting involved. We’re doing everything ourselves now. It gives you a lot of freedom, but it gives you limitations as well. You just have to find a balance within that.”
