As much as this site is seeming to become an A Perfect Circle fan blog… it’s not. I promise.
That being said, the band just started their 6 week tour, which could unofficially be called their eMOTIVE tour, as the majority of the setlist revolves around the mostly covers album, but still revisits gems from Mer de Noms (“The Hollow”) and Thirteenth Step (“Weak and Powerless”).
With the first show in Portland, the band surprised fans with a new song called “By and Down”. Though the quality of the recordings I’ve found on YouTube are less than stellar, I’ve found that this new song contain all of the elements that make A Perfect Circle such a great band: melodic guitars, ethereal atmosphere, and flowing vocals. The lyrics to the song are somewhat of a mystery to me at this point, as quality has compromised diction, but as soon as I find a better version and some lyrics, you’ll know you can find them here.
I now bring to you… the best version of “By and Down” I could find…
Let me know what you think. Comments are always appreciated.
