Puscifer is a band of Maynard James Keenan, known for his work with the bands Tool and A Perfect Circle. As Keenan is the only permanent member, he considers the project to be his “creative subconscious.” In light of this, Puscifer could be considered a pseudonym for his solo work.
In February 2009, Keenan debuted Puscifer with shows in Las Vegas. Throughout the year, he continued to perform with a revolving lineup, but limited concerts to the Southwest. However, in a November 2009 interview, Keenan stated: “Efforts to confine our beloved enigma to the Southwestern United States have been thwarted. We are compelled beyond all reason to bring the noise Eastward and share our special sauce. Although authorities suggest you be prepared for any and all possibilities, we simply suggest you arrive happy and hungry.”
Keenan took Puscifer on tour again in the fall and winter of 2011 in support of the newly released “Conditions of My Parole.” This tour covered a larger swath of the United States than previous West Coast-only tours.
On February 16 2016, Puscifer announced UK and European dates under the “Money Shot Heard Around The World” tour. The band will play Manchester and London in the UK, then France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway before ending the tour in Sweden at the world famous Cirkus (Stockholm).
