PUSCIFER was born somewhere in the Arizona desert, & is considered a multimedia experience, traveling circus, and consists of trio: Maynard James Keenan [vocals], Mat Mitchell [guitar, production], and Carina Round [vocals, songwriting]. The moniker’s origins can be traced to a 1995 episode of the HBO classic: “Mr. Show” where Keenan first utilized the name “Puscifer.”
This track will be featured on their upcoming album: “Existential Reckoning” & is scheduled for an Oct. 30th release.
According to a press release:
The agents, Mat Mitchell (guitar, bass, keys) and Carina Round (vocals, keys), with agent-in-training Maynard James Keenan (vocals, stories) a.k.a. Dick Merkin, preview the forthcoming release with “The Underwhelming”.
In a report to commanding officers, the trio said: “In the Summer of 2016, we received a call from Hildy Berger, Billy D’s loving wife. [REDACTED]. Billy D, rumored to have been carrying nothing but a bottle of wine and a mysterious briefcase, had disappeared without a trace somewhere in the high deserts of the Southwestern United States.
Rumors of alien abduction were at the forefront throughout the dark web chatter. Therefore traditional methods of tracking a lost and hopeless drunkard in a dirty leisure suit were not an option. [REDACTED]. We hypothesized the only way to locate the subject was to [REDACTED] construct traversable bridges between intuition and technology, requiring us to explore the metaphorical mycelium between Math and Passion, Art and Order, and Hope and Proof. Through these methods redacted we are able to pinpoint the exact location of both Billy D and the mysterious briefcase.”
