A PERFECT CIRCLE's 'Eat The Elephant' Released In Hologram Version
April 30, 2018
A PERFECT CIRCLE's "Eat The Elephant", the Maynard James Keenan- and Billy Howerdel-led rock band's return release following a 14-year gap between new albums, debuted atop numerous Billboard charts, grabbing the No. 1 spot on the Rock, Independent and Alternative Albums charts, a No. 2 entry on the Top Current Albums chart (for pure album sales) and a No. 3 album debut on the Billboard 200. This is the band's fourth consecutive studio album to have debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200.
A PERFECT CIRCLE kicked off release week with a rare fan forum, taking questions via a live-streamed Q&A from Las Vegas, which was followed on Monday by a "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" performance of "TalkTalk" and "So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish". In the midst of the release-week activities, the band also announced a new round of tour dates for both the U.S. and Europe.
While "Eat The Elephant" was made available in the traditional incarnations (digital/CD, various vinyl colorways),it received a special treatment as part of a deluxe box set, with Sundance award-winning filmmaker Steven Sebring ("Horses: Patti Smith And Her Band", "Dream Of Life") creating the world's first hologram album. The 58-minute hologram, which unfolds through the eyes of a young girl over the 12-song album arc, reveals itself when fans place the prism on their smartphones and enter a special code. The box set can be ordered via the A PERFECT CIRCLEstore.
"Having Maynard and Billy's trust to create this for A PERFECT CIRCLE was a true artist's dream," said Sebring. "Their 14-year break allowed technology to catch up with their groundbreaking music and gave me the chance to apply new ideas of dimensional capture to this stunning album."
