Fans of Tool and A Perfect Circle are accustomed to Maynard James Keenan's irreverent humor and distinct musicality, and his latest project, Puscifer, is no exception. The group’s catalog consists of four full-length studio albums: “‘V’ is for Vagina” (2007), “Conditions of My Parole” (2011), “Money Shot” (2015), and “Existential Reckoning” (2020)—in addition to a series of EPs and remixes. Beyond the core trio of Maynard James Keenan (vocals), Mat Mitchell (guitar, production), and Carina Round (vocals, songwriting), the group’s ever-evolving ecosystem encompasses Greg Edwards (bass, guitar, keys), Gunnar Olsen (drums), as well as a cast of characters such as Billy D and his wife Hildy Berger, Major Douche, Special Agent Dick Merkin and many more. Meanwhile, the moniker’s origins can be traced to a 1995 episode of the HBO classic Mr. Show where Keenan first used the name “Puscifer.”
Keenan has kept his finger on the pulse of society as demonstrated with Puscifer’s 2020 studio album “Existential Reckoning,” which takes aim at American culture and politics in a post-COVID landscape. Hit singles like "Apocalyptical" and "The Underwhelming” propelled the album to No. 7 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart. The band wrapped up their first trek in support of the album in 2020; the month-long outing saw Puscifer bring audiences their largest scale productions to date performing at the Greek Theatre (Los Angeles), Brooklyn’s Kings Theater and the state-of-the-art Mission Ballroom in Denver. Replete with aliens, and appearances from beloved Pusciverse characters, the show has been described as “a sublimely bizarre spectacle” (Phoenix New Times), a “theatrical show… offering up an entertaining set that extended far beyond music” (Consequence) and simply “out of this world” (Arts Fuse). Doors for the show open at 7 p.m.
