Billy Howerdel-Composer and Guitar Maynard James Keenan-Words and Vocals Paz Lenchantin-Bass and Violin Troy Van Leeuwen-Guitar Josh Freese-Drums

The subject of intense industry speculation, A Perfect Circle is a new band formed by Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel. Keenan, the singer of the multi-platinum selling rock band Tool, is the group's vocalist and primary lyricist; Howerdel, is the founder, guitarist and composer of the groups music. Rounding out the band are Paz Lenchantin on bass and Violin, Josh Freese (Vandals) on drums and Troy Van Leeuwen (ex-Failure, Enemy) on guitar.

The group made its first public appearance in August, 1999 at Los Angeles' Viper Room at a benefit for punk rock innovator Keith Morris of the Circle Jerks. Most recently, the band opened the Coachella Art and Music Festival in Palm Springs, CA.

The new album is entitled Mer De Noms and features twelve songs showcasing Keenan's remarkably intense and intimate vocals, the band's focus and ferocity, and melodiousness not typically heard in the heavy alternative rock genre. The new album was written by Howerdel and Keenan, recorded and produced by Howerdel, and mixed by Howerdel and Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, U2).
