According to his Twitter profile, A Perfect Circle guitarist Billy Howerdel has scored his first soundtrack for the independent film D-Love, which had its premier on June 3rd at The TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood as part of the Dances with Films film festival. The film, written by Dave Rogers and directed by Elena Beuca (with Howerdel serving as co-producer) is centered around Stefania and her husband Dan, who decide to bring a mysterious vagabond into their home. Howerdel also makes an appearance in the film, as one of the side characters, Shawn. The movie’s website further elaborates:
“Stefania is working a job she has hated for years. Her husband, Dan, hasn’t worked in years. They have just landed at Los Angeles airport, returning from Europe, and having one of the worst days of their lives. Stefania is approached by a vagabond – Ditlev, who asks her for a ride to one of the busiest freeways in Los Angeles. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with the wanderer, but her husband Dan, decides to take him home with them. How will this affect the couple? The director invites you on a 3 day journey, seen through Stefania’s eyes, to view and discover that desired change doesn’t always come in the package that we want or expect.”
Howerdel has been busy of late, having just wrapped up a wildly successful tour of the US with A Perfect Circle in addition to the announcement of a new album. It would appear that Howerdel will continue his busy year in the fall as it has been announced that A Perfect Circle will be playing at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival this October in Sacramento. There has still been no official word regarding the release date for the new APC record, with cryptic social media posts suggesting that the album may not see the light of day until 2018.
