Here’s the full lineup:

Puscifer announced November shows in Florida

Puscifer have announced a couple of shows in Florida in November, as well as the promise of more:

Floridian friends, we’re stopping by for a visit in November. We’ll see you:

November 1 Orlando, FL Bob Carr Theater
November 3 Clearwater, FL Ruth Eckerd Hall

Tickets for Orlando available this Friday, May 6 at 10 am; tickets for Clearwater available this Saturday, May 7. More dates will be announced soon.

No word on how extensive this tour might be – we’ll just have to wait and see!  Probably not a great sign for those hoping Tool might hit the studio in 2016 though.

Record Store Day 2016!

Don’t forget it’s Record Store Day this weekend on the 16th of April, and among the releases for this years event is a Picture Disc edition of Puscifer‘s  V is for Viagra The Remixes.  Probably not the album I would have preferred a picture disc of, but I went on down to a local record store in town and noticed they have several copies, so snapped one up.

Here’s a shot:

Maynard “still hopeful” of a Tool album

It looks like Maynard hasn’t given up hope of a new Tool album, at least according to a recent interview with WMMR (a radio station in Philadelphia I believe).  You can listen to the whole interview below, Maynard comes online at about the 1:46 mark.  It’s an ok interview, nothing you haven’t really heard before though (though I did discover Al Bundy has a black belt):

When asked about Tool news he responded:

“No, not really. They’re still doing what they do, and I’m still hopeful.”

So there you have it. No real news. Maybe one day we’ll get some actual news…

Maynard suggest Tool have found “common ground”

In a recent interview with The Press Enterprise, Maynard James Keenan mostly talks about Puscifer , but also gives us an interesting statement about Tool, as well as expressing a desire to work on A Perfect Circle again:

Keenan said he hopes he will work again with his main A Perfect Circle collaborator, Billy Howerdel, and make new music with that band. As for Tool, there have been signs of life recently, including a 17-show tour this past January, but Keenan wasn’t promising any new music from his main band.

“We’ve found a common ground,” he said. “We just can’t seem to move forward.”

Hopefully some progress forward is made sometime in the next 6 to 10 months.

Fourtheye Readers Best Albums of 2015 results

The results are in for the Fourtheye Readers Best Albums of 2015 poll! This year it is a genuine Top 10 as there were no ties to deal with. The winner probably won’t surprise anyone, but there are a few surprises further down in the list.

Thanks to all of those who contributed – I counted 644 unique votes this time around, and a list of all albums with two or more votes can be found in the forum. For those interested in my top 10 – stay tuned, as I’ll probably get around to posting it tomorrow!

Let’s get into it, starting with the most popular album for 2015…

1. Puscifer – Money $hot

Well, I doubt this will come as a real shock to many, as Puscifer, like them or not are fronted by the singer of the band we’re all here to talk about. Money $hot had double the number of votes than the album in the number 2 position. I considered making it ineligible for the poll, but decided against it, since in my opinion at least it is a decent album, though one I don’t think will make my top 10. Those who would rather see this rule out, could perhaps take some solace in the fact that Steven Wilson’s album would have finished tenth had I done so.

Puscifer - Money Shot

2. Faith No More – Sol Invictus

Comeback albums have been popular of late, and this year we heard a couple of rippers. The best of which would appear to be Faith No More‘s Sol Invictus. Released independently on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings, the band seem to be a model of how bands should go about reforming after a lengthy break. And they still kick arse live as well!

Faith No More - Sol Invictus

3. Failure – The Heart is a Monster

Also on the comeback trail are California Alt-Rock band Failure. Seemingly more popular now than they were back in the 90s, they released the album The Heart is a Monster which sits right up with the best in their back catalog.

Failure - The Heart is a Monster

4. Ghost – Meliora

Ghost have dropped the BC from their name, and changed their singer, but their scary rock styling still remain a hit with Fourtheye readers. Personally I can’t say I’m a fan at all, but it least they aren’t Slipknot!

Ghost - Meliora

5. Elder – Lore

Elder are a band that have come out of no where for many, and have released on of the best prog/stoner/doom metal albums in years. If you haven’t checked this one out yet, then make sure you do!

6. Deafheaven – New Bermuda

Deafheaven seem to be a divisive band these days – some people love them. Others blame them for all the misdeeds hipsters have bestowed upon the world. Personally, I think they’re pretty good, and New Bermuda is almost certainly better than Sunbather.

7. Intronaut – The Direction of Last Things

Intronaut are a favorite of Tool fans, especially since Justin has appeared with them on several occasions. The Direction of Last Things is one of their best and heaviest works yet, and well worth a spot on any top 10.

Intronaut - The Direction of Last Things

8. Baroness – Purple

After a horrific bus accident, it’s inspiring to see a band rebuild themselves, crowd fund their own album, and then blow away their fans with some great music.

Baroness - Purple

9. Chelsea Wolfe – Abyss

Chelsea Wolfe‘s haunting voice, combined with a doomy brand of acoustic rock have made this a favorite on the Fourtheye forums for a while now. It’s great to see it earn a spot on our top 10 list!

10. Bjork – Vulnicura

An elder stateswoman of the alternative scene released another standout album in 2015. Bjork’s albums are never boring and almost always worth a listen, as you’re likely to hear something you’ve never heard before…

Bjork - Vulnicura
