A Perfect Circle has released a new video for “Disillusioned,” the second track to emerge from the band’s new LP, Eat The Elephant. The clip showcases a group of people helplessly attached to their smartphones, with one woman testing a version of the technology that is applied directly to her eyes like contact lenses. But when she comes upon a group of people who have abandoned their devices, holding hands in a circle to celebrate their togetherness and appreciation of the natural world, she leads others to do the same thing.
The video seems to be a reference in some ways to singer Maynard James Keenan's official policy of banning smartphones and similar devices from A Perfect Circle and Tool shows.
