The band went into hiatus in 2004. Since then band members have worked on other projects, the most notable being Keenan’s work on Tool’s 2006 album 10,000 Days and Howerdel’s album Keep Telling Myself It’s Alright under Ashes Divide, his name for his solo work.
The two announced they had reformed to work on new material in late 2008, although the band was not publicly active until 2010, when the band began touring again.
On November 19, 2013, the band released a greatest hits album entitled Three Sixty, which contains one new song, “By and Down”, and on November 26, 2013, the band released a box set entitled A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone and Echo. While the band continues to work on new material since its reformation, few details exist regarding a timetable or form of the release.
In September 2013, it was announced that the band would release two separate compilations in November 2013. The first is a greatest hits album entitled Three Sixty, containing one new song, “By and Down”, the second a box set entitled A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone and Echo.
The box set contains their three concerts in 2011 where they played one album in its entirety each night, and a performance of the band at Red Rocks.
In regards to future material from the band, Keenan stated “Of course, there’s always writing going on constantly. It’s just stuff that’s not quite sitting right yet, so you don’t know about it”.
In November 2013, Howerdel stated that “there are fully developed songs without lyrics and melody…as far as the music end goes, I’ve got 75% of the foundation of A Perfect Circle record ready to go.” He did concede that this could change depending on Keenan’s stance on music, and that Keenan prefers smaller releases, while Howerdel prefers the form of a full album.
