A Perfect Circle Drummer Josh Freese Backs Out of Tour

Mick Hutson, Redferns

Drummer Josh Freese will not be sitting behind the kit for A Perfect Circle‘s summer tour, which runs for approximately six weeks, in order to honor a commitment to geek-rockers Weezer. Freese is nothing if not a noble man for not giving up on his previously scheduled responsibilities.

Freese posted the following note about his absence from the APC tour on his website:

“I’m sad to report that I will be sitting out the A Perfect Circle tour this summer. Maybe the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make professionally and it hasn’t been easy on me. I’ve been looking forward to APC reforming for years now and the timing just couldn’t have been worse. I’d already committed the time to Weezer and I am a man of my word. As much as I hate to have to miss the APC tour there wasn’t a whole lot I could do about it.

“I get asked all the time how I manage to ‘do it all.’ Well, usually I do ‘do it all’ and it’s a combination of working really hard and driving myself and my family a bit crazy. But SOMETiMES it doesn’t work out and this time I’m forfeiting something very close to my heart and something that I take a great deal of pride in. I’ve never apologized to fans of a band for not being able to be there for something so I’ll take this opportunity to do it here. I’m sorry that I’m not going to be there with APC this summer. I’ve missed other tours with other bands over the years but this one has been the toughest pill to swallow.

“The APC guys have been unbelievable [sic] cool, understanding and supportive about my situation. Yes, they’re bummed but no, they don’t hold it against me and all is well with us. They are true friends and I’m very much remaining the drummer in the band and look forward to being involved again on whatever we venture off to do next. Hope to see you guys out at a show sometime either later this year or in 2012……ya never know.”
