A Perfect Circle have welcomed 2018 with the release of their latest track “Disillusioned,” the second piece of new music from their new album. While “The Doomed” was more eerie and apocalyptic sounding, “Disillusioned” strikes a more optimistic tone that urges listeners to connect with each other again,

“The Doomed’ was a rude wake-up call… apologies if you were sleeping peacefully,’ said guitarist Billy Howerdel. “Disillusioned’ comes from a place of overcoming the slide into the numb. It speaks to reconnection and a fresh start to a new year.”

Addressing the musicality of “Disillusioned,” which echoes the sentiment of unity, singer Maynard James Keenan said, “Attempting new approaches to composing can be intimidating. Especially with an established project with such a recognizable sound. But sometimes you just gotta take the first swing. Only way to grow.”
