The band’s spring outing, their first U.S. tour in six years, began with a three-night stand at The Pearl in Las Vegas. “It was as if they never left, both in terms of the sharpness of their performance and the contemporary relevancy… of their catalog,” said the Las Vegas Review Journal in their review of the opening evening. As The band worked their way through the month of U.S. dates, Keenan dubbed the outing the “get to know ya/re-get to know ya” tour, a nod to the band’s hiatus and news of their forthcoming album. A Perfect Circle headlined Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock and Carolina Rebellion before concluding the tour with an “enthralling” (Orange County Register), “rapturous” (Buzzbands) sold out, debut performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
The band’s current line-up is Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer), Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide), James Iha (Tinted Windows, ex-Smashing Pumpkins), Jeff Friedl (Puscifer, The Beta Machine) and Matt McJunkins (Eagles of Death Metal, The Beta Machine)
The Beta Machine
The Beta Machine consists of McJunkins (who doubles on vocals), Friedl, and guitarists Tommy Dill (who provides keyboards as well) and Nick Perez. Claire Acey of Nightmare And The Cat helps out on vocals on their first release, “Pictures”. Carina Round of Puscifer has also been known to show up at their live performances.
Matt McJunkins and drummer Jeff Friedl are best known as the hard-rocking rhythm section behind A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Eagles of Death Metal, and others. Now the duo has decided to branch off to unleash music of their own under the moniker The Beta Machine.
