According to the Melissa Auf der Maur fan site Firecrasher, the former HOLE/SMASHING PUMPKINS bassist will open for A PERFECT CIRCLE on their European trek. It is not clear whether this will be for the entire tour or for select dates.

As previously reported, Melissa Auf Der Maur will release her self-titled debut album on March 1 through Capitol Records. A single, titled "Followed The Waves", will precede the album on February 16.

The CD, which was produced by MASTERS OF REALITY mainman Chris Goss at several studios, including Stratosphere in New York City (owned by former SMASHING PUMPKINS and current A PERFECT CIRCLE guitarist James Iha),will feature guest appearances by Iha, former NIRVANA drummer/current FOO FIGHTERS mainman Dave Grohl, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE/ex-KYUSS axeman Josh Homme, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE bassist Nick Oliveri, A PERFECT CIRCLE/ex-MARILYN MANSON bassist Twiggy Ramirez, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE/ex-A PERFECT CIRCLE guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE/ex-SCREAMING TREES singer Mark Lanegan, former HOLE/MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Samantha Maloney, and ex-ZWAN/A PERFECT CIRCLE bassist Paz Lenchantin.

Speaking about the album, Auf Der Maur recently said: "The recording process started in March 2001, but the songwriting took place over the last decade. It was important for me to do this on my own, before even entertaining the thought of a record company. So I got a plan together and spent every penny I made."

The complete track listing for "Melissa Auf Der Maur" is as follows:

01. Lightning Is My Girl
02. Followed The Waves
03. Real A Lie
04. Head Unbound
05. Taste You
06. Beast Of Honor
07. I'll Be Anything You Want
08. My Foggy Notion
