Puscifer Announce New Album, Release New Song Apocalyptical

Listen to Puscifer’s first new music in five years, presumably taken from their upcoming album

Maynard James Keenan’s other other band Puscifer have announced they will be releasing a new full-length album later his year.

The news comes after the band began posting teasers at the end of April. On Instagram last month the band shared a snippet of new material with the words “Doin stuff. More details to follow this weekend.”

The post was followed up by the same sounds, but the caption, “Round two of teasing.” Both were accompanied by the hashtags ‘puscifer2020’ and ‘soon’.

And now we know that the follow-up to 2015’s Money Shot album will arrive later this year.

Sharing the news on social media, Puscifer simply said: “Puscifer Invasion. Prepare to be Abducted. New Album Fall 2020. World Tour 2021.” Can’t say simpler than that, really?

The news was accompanied by the release of a brand new song in the form of Apocalyptical – the first new music from the band in five years.

The video shows a figure in a hazmat suit zooming around Los Angeles while Maynard James Keenan (dressed somewhat like a Thunderbird/ventriloquist dummy) dances against a red background.

Puscifer’s 2020 album will be the third studio album Maynard has put his name two in as many years; following last year’s Fear Inoculum from Tool and A Perfect Circle’s Eat The Elephant in 2018.

When asked by Kerrang! in 2016 how he juggles his many projects – also including wine-making – the frontman joked, “Coffee.”

“The trick is that I’m not doing it all,” he added. “If I was some kind of egomaniac and tried to do it all I would fail. You have to be ok with trusting other people around you to carry the weight and load and share the credit… You need the right people around you.”
