TOOL Frontman's PUSCIFER Schedules Live Debut

TOOL frontman Maynard James Keenan's side project PUSCIFER will make its live debut on at the Pearl @ Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 13 and February 14. More information is available one the poster below.

Keenan told The Pulse of Radio that PUSCIFER (see video below) actually evolved out of a cabaret-style show he used to do in his pre-TOOL days in Hollywood. "Generally started off as a name that I was attaching to some of the comedy things I was doing with (comedian) Laura Milligan at this club called Tantrum which existed in the Diamond Club on Hollywood and La Brea," he said. "(We'd) have a variety show, lots of talent coming through there just kind of trying out their new stuff. So PUSCIFER was kind of like the band that would kind of close the show."

Milligan is a comedian and actress seen on "Mr. Show" and more recently in "Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny". Several performers from both projects used to work on the same gigs as Keenan.

PUSCIFER's debut album, "V Is For Vagina", came out in the fall of 2007.

TOOL has been on vacation since the end of last year, when it finished an 18-month tour in support of its 2006 album, "10,000 Days".
