Maynard James Keenan is one busy guy. After recently kicking off a tour with another band he lends vocals to, A Perfect Circle, he’s on the radar again with his other project, Puscifer. Not only has A Perfect Circle debuted new music on their tour, Keenan released a track today from the upcoming Puscifer album Conditions of My Parole called “Man Overboard”. Sticking to the trademark sound Puscifer embodies in its music, this track is sure to please fans of the band and Keenan fans alike. The song contains less electronic samples that laced much of the entire debut album V is for Vagina, but stands very well on its own without comparison of previous Puscifer releases and Keenan related projects.
Does this mean we’ll have a Tool album coming soon, too? With as busy as Keenan is with A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, it’s unlikely. Wishful thinking is always nice, right?
Overall, I am really pleased with this song. It’s very catchy, dark, and driving. With any work from Mr. Keenan, I am always excited and looking forward to hearing more.
You can listen to the track in its entirety below.
