Ashes Divide is the name used for the solo project of American rock musician Billy Howerdel, guitarist of the alternative rock band A Perfect Circle, where he is the primary songwriter, musician, producer, and vocalist. The project's debut album, Keep Telling Myself It's Alright, was released in 2008. Howerdel formed a live band and toured in support of the album through the rest of the year, but the project fell to the wayside after A Perfect Circle reformed and toured in 2010 and 2011. Howerdel would work on both projects for a while until late 2012, where he announced his primary focus is completing the second album, of which he hoped to enter the mixing phase in January or February 2013. At this point, it is not knwon where this project stands.
