Maynard James Keenan Releases New Puscifer Single, ‘Man Overboard’
Maynard James Keenan‘s musical comedy side project Puscifer will release a new LP on October 18, ‘Conditions of My Parole,’ through Puscifer Entertainment. Stream the album’s lead single, ‘Man Overboard,’ right here.
Keenan record the album in his famed wine cellar, where he distributes his own Caduceus Wines.
“It’s different writing music in the outback compared to writing music on Hollywood Boulevard,” Keenan told Spin. “The Verde Valley has so much diversity. You’ve got stories of ghosts and aliens, plus republicans, democrats, conservatives, liberals, vineyards, ranches, horses. It’s hostile territory: You’ve got scorpions, black widows, brown recluse, javelina, rattlesnakes… and hippies.”
The album’s list of collaborators is meaty: Jeff Friedl (ASHES dIVIDE), Matt McJunkins (ASHES dIVIDE), Mat Mitchell (Telefon Tel Aviv), Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), Sarah Jones (Bat for Lashes), singer-songwriter Juliette Commagere and Jon Theodore (One Day As a Lion, ex-The Mars Volta). Undoubtedly, it remains entirely in the family for Puscifer.
Puscifer are plotting a tour for about two months tailing the release of ‘Conditions,’ with dates yet to be announced. For now, Keenan is trekking North America with A Perfect Circle.
