A Perfect Circle have only been playing songs from their three album back catalog during shows for the past few months. All that changed last night in Portland, Oregon when the band busted out a brand new tune titled 'By and Down', check it out.

Both Maynard and Billy Howerdel of A Perfect Circle have said that there are two songs they've been working on and they will probably be released digitally in the coming months. While the jury is still out on whether they will reconvene after the tour to record an entire album, Maynard recently said, "The energy is good. So there's always hope for the future." The plans for Maynard's immediate future include a tour and another album with Puscifer, both of which will follow A Perfect Circle's current tour.

Rumors of the band's work on two new songs date back to over a year ago.The band finally unveiled one of those tracks named 'By and Down' last night in Portland, Oregon. The track is both melodic and unusual, which has kind of become the calling card of APC, what do you think?
