A Perfect Circle will embark on their first tour in six years with a 20-date U.S. run this spring. The trek launches with two performances in Las Vegas on April 7th and 8th and concludes with their previously announced May 7th show at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.

The tour also includes a trio of festival spots: Welcome to Rockville (April 29th in Jacksonville, Florida), Fort Rock Festival (April 30th in Ft. Myers, Florida) and Carolina Rebellion (May 5th in Charlotte, North Carolina). Tickets for non-festival shows go on sale Friday, January 13th at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for the Hollywood Bowl date are currently on sale.

The band also revealed they’ve started work on their first studio album since 2004’s eMOTIVe. “Getting back to writing music with A Perfect Circle is a great way to start the new year,” guitarist Billy Howerdel said in a statement.

A Perfect Circle’s current lineup includes Howerdel, singer Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer), guitarist James Iha (formerly of Smashing Pumpkins), bassist Matt McJunkins (Eagles of Death Metal)…
