New Puscifer Album Due in November


Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan may spend more time managing his business ventures and Arizona vineyard than singing about prison rape onstage, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost his sense of potty humor. The alt-rock singer has just announced a new release from his side-project Puscifer, and it’s called… “C” is for (Please Insert Sophomoric Genitalia Reference Here) EP.

Naturally, the six-track EP, out Nov. 10, is the band’s first new release since 2007’s “V” Is For Vagina. Go figure.

The album features two new songs (“Polar Bear” and “The Humbling River”), plus live versions of a pair of V tracks (“Vagina Mine” and “Momma Sed”) and remixes of “Potions” and “The Mission,” featuring vocals from actress Milla Jovovich, who joined Keenan and Co. onstage at the band’s live debut earlier this year.

Need more genital nastiness from Mr. Keenan? Well, dig this: Puscifer will kick off their first-ever U.S. tour in Las Vegas on October 29, and will bring lewd wordplay and heavy riffs to cities nationwide into December. See complete dates below.
