Billy Howerdel is striking out on his own.

The A Perfect Circle guitarist will play his first live show as a solo artist during a concert in Las Vegas taking place February 23. The performance will feature songs from his upcoming solo debut album — title and release date to be announced.

“This new album was birthed while on tour with A Perfect Circle,” Howerdel says. “A weird blend of confidence, vulnerability and mortality urgently compelled me to write a letter of sorts in the form of an album.”

The record’s first single, titled “Poison Flowers,” will drop March 4.

Howerdel formed A Perfect Circle alongside Tool‘s Maynard James Keenan in 1999. The band has released four studio albums, the most recent of which being 2018’s Eat the Elephant.
