Puscifer sidewave tour announced

Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan is bringing Puscifer to Australia during Soundwave. They won’t be playing at the festival, but you can catch them at shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

In August there were rumours that Puscifer would be joining the Soundwave 2013 lineup after co-vocalist Carina Round tweeted “See you soon Australia with Puscifer” with a link directing her followers to the Soundwave festival website. Round later apologised for leading fans on claiming that her tweets were pranks – “Sorry guys. Bad Joke.”

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 Maddah’s cryptic tweet finally makes sense!

While Keenan is the only permanent member of Puscifer, the current lineup includes Keenan, Round, guitarist Mat Mitchell, and Matt McJunkins (A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Ashes Divide, and 30 Seconds to Mars). The most recent Puscifer album is 2011’s Conditions of My Parole, which allmusic described as “a fine piece of cold weather headphone music.”

Puscifer tour:

Friday, February 22 – The Tivoli, Brisbane (18+)

Tuesday, February 26 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney (Lic A/A)

Thursday, February 28 – Palais Theatre, Melbourne (All Ages)
