Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel bring A Perfect Circle to Portland’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall tonight!  I’ll be there with camera in tow.

Puscifer ‘Conditions of My Parole’ & Tour {new A Perfect Circle & Tool music, too}

22nd Jun 11 (Wed) Leave a comment

As posted in SPIN this morning, Puscifer is releasing their second full-length studio album this fall.  Album name – Conditions of My Parole.  Street date – October 18, 2011.  Puscifer is the brainchild of Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman and Caduceus winemaker Maynard James Keenan.

Man Overboard,” the first single from the album, will be available via iTunes and other digital service providers on July 19.   Conditions of My Parole was recorded in Jerome, Ariz. this spring with tracking done amidst the wine barrels from Keenan’s Caduceus Cellars. The album was produced by Keenan, Mat Mitchell, and Josh Eustis. Contributing musicians for the new album include the aforementioned Keenan, Mitchell, and Eustis as well as Carina Round, Juliette Commagere, Matt McJunkins, Jeff Freidl, Gil and Rani Sharone, Jonny Polonsky, Tim Alexander, Devo Keenan, Alessandro Cortini, Sarah Jones, and Jon Theodore.


After the album drops in October, Puscifer will hit the road for a two-month tour. Maynard says he’s still working out the details, but fans can expect variety show-style gigs like the band’s last jaunt in 2009, but with “a lot of changes and new approaches. We’ll be doing a lot of filming and posting more videos online, too.”

Also news about APC and Tool…

But even when he’s deep into Puscifer mode, Maynard’s other projects are never far from his mind. After their summer tour, A Perfect Circle “might put out a track or two,” he says. “The energy is good, so there’s always the potential for a future.” And Tool? “We’re writing,” he says.
