Maynard James Keenan doesn't seem to like down time. When not working with prog rock giants Tool, he performs in the arty A Perfect Circle, and when not keeping busy with either of those bands, he makes wine here in Arizona, and has a major role in the upcoming existentialist country comedy, Queens of Country.
Keenan also fronts Puscifer, an "eclectic music-meets-comedy troupe." Puscifer is scheduled to release its sophomore album, Conditions of My Parole, on Tuesday, October 18. The band is following up the release with a tour, and scheduled to play here on Sunday, December 11, with the venue to be announced.
Tickets are scheduled to go on-sale Friday, October 7 at 12 noon local time via Ticketmaster and Live Nation websites. The press release indicates that tickets will be available at venue box offices, as well -- but we don't know what venue the band will be performing at.
The release also states that: "A limited number of VIP packages, featuring wine tastings and a more mysterious Puscifer encounter, will be available simultaneously via http://puscifer.frontgatetickets.com."
Puscifer has also released the an animated video for the album's first single, "Man Overboard," directed by Meats Meier.
We will bring news of the venue announcement as soon as we get it.
