A Perfect Circle, Primus and Puscifer have announced a new EP. The trio of bands will unite for the Sessanta E.P.P.P., arriving March 29 via Puscifer Entertainment.

The three-way split EP coincides with next month's US-only Sessanta tour, the expanded successor of APC and Puscifer vocalist (and black belt certified trainer of Mike Tyson) Maynard James Keenan's 50th birthday show Cinquanta, held in Los Angeles in 2014 and treated to some unbelievably ugly album art for its recorded release this month.

The Sessanta shows mark A Perfect Circle's first live performances since 2018. That same year, the band released what remains their most recent album in Eat the Elephant.

Puscifer's most recent studio album is 2020's Existential Reckoning, while Primus's remains 2017's The Desaturating Seven.
