PUSCIFER, the Arizona-based electro-rock band fronted by TOOL's Maynard James Keenan, will release its third full-length album, "Money Shot", on October 30 via Puscifer Entertainment.
The video for the "Money Shot" track "Grand Canyon" can be seen below.
"It's extremely satisfying to witness simple conversations and ideas transform into completed sonic landscapes. And to have these stories go above and beyond the initial ideas makes my grumpy heart swell three sizes," said Keenan. PUSCIFER celebrates the concept of creativity, invoking the audience "to create something with every breath drawn." That sentiment takes center stage as "Money Shot" unfolds over its 10 songs.
"Money Shot" was produced by guitar player, programmer Mat Mitchell and Keenan, with some additional awesome sauce coming from the one-of-a-kind badass Carina Round.
"It's such a pleasure to work on music with so many creative individuals. The intermix of influences and ideas made for an album I'm really proud of," said Mitchell. Additional participants include Carina Round, Juliette Commagere, Devo Keenan, Tim Alexander, Jon Theodore, Jeff Friedl and Matt McJunkins, with Adam Rothlein directing the "Grand Canyon" video.
PUSCIFER has existed in some form since 1995 but only began making records in 2007. Keenan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that the project was not just another band. "This is much more of just a collaborative, creative outlet on all levels with various people, free from label contracts and just kind of express to express, and not really worry about taking over the world with it," he said.
