The introduction of A Perfect Circle on Mer de Noms (Sea of Names in French) was that of a side project of Tool. Over the development of the project and certainly leading into the present, the strength of the A Perfect Circle brand has shifted the balance from a so called side project to a band in their own right. The powerful combination of Maynard James Keenan's aching voice and Billy Howerdel's accomplished songs and production skills has helped A Perfect Circle become one of the premier lifestyle bands and a major success in the rock and alternative rock formats.

A Perfect Circle is an American rock super-group formed in 1999 by guitarist Billy Howerdel and Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan. The original incarnation of the band also included Paz Lenchantin on bass, Troy Van Leeuwen on guitar, and Tim Alexander on drums. The latest line-up features Puscifer and Ashes Divide bassist Matt McJunkins, former guitarist for The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha; and session drummer Josh Freese, who is best known for his work with Nine Inch Nails, Devo, and The Vandals. Despite having a varied cast since inception, the stylistic content of the songs has remained consistent with Howerdel as composer, and Keenan penning the lyrics.
