Tool has been blowing minds all summer at festivals like All Points West and Lollapalooza, but there’s little rest in store for frontman Maynard James Keenan: He’ll be taking his Tool side project Puscifer out on the road starting this October.
The tour will be Keenan’s first with Puscifer, after debuting a stage version of the band this past February in Las Vegas.
“We are compelled beyond all reason to bring the noise and share our special sauce,” Keenan posted in an announcement on the group’s website.”Although authorities suggest you be prepared for any and all possibilities, we simply suggest you arrive happy and hungry.”
The hardcore proggers will bring their oddball chaos to 11 Western cities this fall with the promise of cuts from last year’s “V” Is for Vagina and, as Keenan hinted on Twitter back in May, maybe some new tunes.
Check out the full list of fall tour dates below, including a San Diego Halloween show that should be quite a spectacle.Don’t live out West? No worries, your time is coming — Keenan says that Midwest and East Coast dates should get scheduled for next spring.
