A Perfect Circle's haunting new music video for 'Disillusioned' is out: Watch
A Perfect Circle condemn digital obsession, praise the healing power of nature in the new video for 'Disillusioned.'
While Tool fans have been left in the dark again thanks to frontman Maynard James Keenan deleting his tweets about the new album update, there are still plenty of reasons to rejoice.
Keenan has revealed that he is working on new material for his side-project Puscifer. Meanwhile, Maynard's other band, A Perfect Circle's latest album, 'Eat the Elephant.' is set for an April 20 release, making it their first new album in 14 years.

Now, there's more good news. On Friday (Mar 9), A Perfect Circle released the music video for one of the album's singles, 'Disillusioned'.
Directed by Alex Howard, the video follows a woman through a creepy, black-and-white space where a cult stands enraptured by their smartphones, scrolling until their eyes literally become blank.
The protagonist sneaks outside, encountering a group of people at one with nature, holding hands in a 'perfect circle'. One person hands her a lighter, which she uses as a symbolic tool to rescue the rest of the digitally obsessed as the world, fittingly, fills with color.
It's a textbook example of the metaphysical commentary that we are used to from A Perfect Circle. Maynard's lyrics echo the theme out too.
"Time to put the silicone obsession down," he sings over Billy Howerdel's haunting piano chords. "Take a look around, find a way in the silence." Watch the music video below:
A Perfect Circle is also releasing a limited-edition 10-inch vinyl single of the song, paired with lead single 'The Doomed,' on March 9. Select copies are available at A Perfect Circle's official website and at select retailers.
The band will also be promoting the record with a North American tour launching April 14 in Tucson, Arizona.
