Puscifer confirmed for Soundwave 2013

Update – 23 August

Puscifer WON’T be touring as part of Soundwave. Carina Round has apologised for leading fans on claiming that her tweets were pranks – “Sorry guys. Bad Joke.”

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan will be bringing two bands to Soundwave FestivalA Perfect Circle and Puscifer.

When A Perfect Circle was announced on the first lineup of Soundwave Puscifer tweeted “Soundwave Confirmed. More news to follow” and linked in the Twitter accounts of Puscifer band members Carina Round, Mat Mitchell and Matt McJunkins.

Puscifer later announced that “The is confirming APC NOT Puscifer for Soundwave” but it seemed unusual that Puscifer members Carina Round and Mat Mitchell had been included in the post. And when asked by a fan if “there any chance of getting @Puscifer on the bill?” Soundwave’s boss AJ Maddah cryptically replied “Yes! And also No!”

Now Puscifer co-vocalist Carina Round has confirmed that the band will be touring as part of the Soundwave 2013 festivities. Earlier today Round tweeted “See you soon Australia with Puscifer” with a link directing her followers to the Soundwave festival website.

Round joined Puscifer as a touring member in 2009 and appears on almost every track on the band’s most recent album, 2011’s Conditions of My Parole. She has also played the support slot on tour with Puscifer and released a solo album, Tigermending, earlier this year featring guest appearances by Dave Stewart, Brian Eno and Billy Corgan.

A third round of Soundwave lineup announcements is expected in September or early October and according to Maddah it will feature “1 or two sizeable bands”.

While it now appears that Puscifer will be part of this third round announcement Maddah has already ruled out any hopes of seeing Maynard James Keenan’s ‘other’ band Tool on the lineup.
