Maynard James Keenan Prepares for Book, Puscifer Album and Tour
Puscifer is gearing up for the release of their new EP 'Donkey Punch the Night' on Feburary 19th along with a handful of non U.S tour dates. In addition to the new album, Maynard James Keenan revealed in a recent interview that he is also writing an autobiography. Keenan said in the interview “I think there are a lot of misconceptions with some people that, all of a sudden, I was born when my first band came out. I actually had a life before that, and there were a lot of accomplishments. [The book] will kind of chronicle why it is I got to where I am, and why I got to where you knew about me.”
Maynard began Puscifer as an alter-ego to his Tool and A Perfect Circle personas in 2003. Since the release of Puscifer’s 2011 'Conditions of My Parole,' the band seems to have secured a solid lineup consisting of vocalist Carina Round, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl of A Perfect Circle and guitarist Mat Mitchell. in this behind-the-scenes video, from the bands U.S. tour from last summer, and we witness Maynard in the middle of practice with his band of curmudgeons.
