Puscifer Unveil Dates for 2012 Summer U.S. Tour
Maynard James Keenan’s band Puscifer kicks off another tour in June in support of their 2011 album ‘Conditions of My Parole.’ The traveling comedy rock extravaganza launches at the Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
Puscifer differ from Keenan’s other bands Tool and A Perfect Circle. It’s more of a performance troupe that mixes music, sketch comedy and video elements. Their albums consist of Keenan and a revolving cast of contributors.
Speaking of Tool, they will be performing along with Puscifer at the River’s Edge Festival in St. Paul on June 24. Although they toured earlier this year, it has been six years since the last Tool studio album. However, they hope to enter the studio in June, with a new release possible by the end of 2012.
As far as the status of A Perfect Circle, Keenan told Loudwire last year, “We’ve been kicking around some stuff. Nothing’s ready. Until it’s really solid it doesn’t make any sense to present it, and right now (Billy Howerdell) is busy with Ashes Divide and I’m doing Puscifer.”
