The on-again, off-again Perfect Circle, was formed in 1999 by Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and one-time Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins and Tool guitar tech Billy Howerdel, who later formed Ashes Divide. The band came out of the gate quickly early this century with three albums between 2000 and '04, but then went on hiatus for six years. "Eat the Elephant," which came out in April, is the band's first studio album in 14 years.
Keenan and Howerdel have been the group's only constants with a shifting rhythm section that now includes drummer Josh Freese, bassist Matt McJunkins of Ashes Divide and Keenan's Puscifier, and rhythm guitarist James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins. According to the Rupp Arena website, that is the lineup that will take the stage at Rupp. The band has been hitting festivals such as Coachella and Rock on the Range this summer.
