Puscifer announce Australian tour in January 2017

Puscifer will be bringing their Money $hot tour Down Under in January, with dates all over Australia and New Zealand, including a headline slot on the Mofo Festival in Tasmania.  Here’s the press release:

Returning to Australia in January 2017, the genre-defying Puscifer will unleash their legendary Money $hot – Round Under Tour on audiences around the country across four huge all-ages shows. The Money $hot tour will take in Melbourne’s Plenary MCEC on Sunday 22nd January, Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre on Monday 23rd January, Sydney’s Darling Harbour Theatre, ICC on Wednesday 25th January and will wrap up with the ultimate Australia Day party at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Thursday 26th January.

Puscifer will descend on Australia straight off the back of a mammoth world tour that marries the concept of concert and theatre, and has been chalking up epic reviews from around the globe:

“Welcome to one of the most intoxicating, semi-befuddling and downright incredible live shows, well, ever… Puscifer’s whole philosophy is about making their live show a unique experience… Nothing is more impressive than the performance, though… one of the best live bands on the planet.” – Kerrang!

“Mindbending, brain-frying, totally unique and definitely worth the wait. Gig of the year. Done.” – Metal Hammer

“Maynard James Keenan’s vocals were in beautiful harmony with Carina Round’s… (this together with) the stunning visuals that accompanied Puscifer’s show throughout the night, made for an incredible gig that won’t be easily forgotten.” – Loudwire

The brainchild of one of music’s most enigmatic personalities, Maynard James Keenan, Puscifer is an accomplished collective of musicians. Puscifer’s touring line-up is Keenan, guitar player Mat Mitchell, singer Carina Round, drummer Jeff Friedl, keyboard player/vocalist Mahsa Zargaran and the newest addition, bass player Paul Barker (Ministry, Lead Into Gold).

‘Money Shot’, Puscifer’s third studio album released in October 2015, is the most confident release to date and easily the most openly “Maynard James Keenan” of the bunch.

“I don’t really know how else to talk about it other than it’s more,” says Keenan. “It really is kind of a culmination of all the things I’ve been exposed to and inspired by over the years. That combination of the digital programming combined with that acoustic element of the harmonies…. Trying to find that actual pulse, that breath of life within the digital landscape — and then just going ahead and bringing it in for real.”

“Money Shot takes a more refined approach to all the things that make Puscifer Puscifer”, wrote Rolling Stone. “The raunchy sense of humor is still there, but the overall mood of melodically pulsing songs like “Grand Canyon,” “Galileo” and “The Remedy” is darker, more sombre and more reflective… Money Shot feels like the most focused work the band has created to date, and maybe also the most personal.”

Do yourself a favour, and don’t miss this one-off live experience  when it rolls into town in January.

Tool April 2016 Newsletter

In our absence, Blair has posted the April 2016 Tool newsletter, which includes a censored section for you to decipher (if you are so inclined):

During a recent phone conversation with a certain band member, he told me the following: “Goddamn, I just ******* the *** **** ***** and it was pretty damn amazing! Of course, ** still has to **** **** of * *** ****** before ** **** ********, but what * *** was well ***** *** ****.”

In other news, I was told (again, by a band member) that *** ******** made **** a good *****, so it ***** **** **** *** ** playing the ************** on *******! Of course, this doesn’t take into consideration a grey goo scenario involving self-replicating nanobots, VY Canis Majoris going hypernova, or even the more likely stumbling block of anthropogenic global warming from too many advanced personal vaporizers (APVs) using propylene glycol, which is NOT the main ingredient in antifreeze. There is also some talk about **** *****, but nothing ** ****** ** and, ***** *******at this time. So, keep your toes crossed.

NEWS FLASH!
Word has it that the ***** for another **** song has been ******** at the ****, and that the fellows are off to a good ***** on ******* one. So, there you **** it.

Possible interpretations so far include finished tracks, completed videos and confirmed shows, or possibly all of the above. Time will tell I guess, though I hear with very good authority that the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans is all but confirmed.

New Orleans!
New Orleans!

Melvins Melbourne Tickets on sale Tomorrow!

Tickets to the Melvins gig at the Ding Dong Lounge go on sale at Moshtix Friday morning 9:00am EST.  It is a small venue and I’d expect tickets to probably sell out, so if you’re planning on going, don’t delay!

According to the Ding Dong Lounge they will be performing Houdini in it’s entirety and Trevor Dunn from Fantomas will be on Bass.  That makes me ever more jealous of those that can go….

No word on the Sydney show at this stage except that it will be on the 22nd of January.

The Melvins Australia/NZ Tour Dates

The Melvins will be playing a few shows in Australia and New Zealand in January 2009 as described below:

Word on the street is that Melvins will be playing some shows in Australia in January ’09 while Fantomas is down under doing the Big Day Out 2009 festival dates. Be sure to check Ipecac’s calendar for up to date info on Fantomas shows. These Melvins dates will most likely be the lineup of Buzz, Dale, & Trevor Dunn on bass. The tentative dates so far:

  • January, 15 2009 – Aukland, New Zealand – TBA
  • January, 22 2009 – Sydney, Australia – TBA
  • January, 27 2009 – Melbourne, Australia – Ding Dong Lounge

Too bad the Melbourne show is on a weeknight otherwise I would have considered going over.  From what I understand this isn’t a proper tour and I look forward to a The Melvins/Big Business tour later in 2009…

Meshuggah North America Tour with Cynic

Tool touring mates Meshuggah have announced they’ll be touring North America in early 2009, with the following dates announced already:

Feb. 01 – House of Blues – Anaheim, CA
Feb. 02 – House of Blues – San Diego, CA
Feb. 06 – El Corazon – Seattle, WA
Feb. 07 – Hawthorne Theatre – Portland, OR
Feb. 08 – Commodore Ballroom – Vancouver, BC
Feb. 15 – House of Blues – Chicago, IL
Feb. 17 – The Phoenix – Toronto, ONT
Feb. 20 – Recher Theatre – Towson, MD

No doubt there are more to come.  Supporting them will be the recently re-united Cynic.

Tool Touring 2009?

According to a recent post on Toolshed:

Though all has been quiet on the Tool front for some time, a promoter wrote in today to say he’s heard rumblings of possible Tool shows in 2009. We’ll keep an eye on this and keep you all posted.

Personally, I could maybe see a late 2009 tour, but that would be about it.  Presuming they maybe hit the recording studio soon, or early next year, then i could see a tour after a late 2009 release of an album.

Thanks to Scott, Tevin & Ganjalf for the tip.

Tricky Tours Australia

Tool tour mate and Parabola star Tricky is coming down to Australia to do his Trip-hoppy type stuff, and as well as playing the Splendour in the Grass festival (which is sold out), he’ll be playing several dates in the Eastern Capitals. That’s right, as usual Adelaide and Perth miss out, and I’m not sure that NZ get any love either.

Here’s the dates:

JULY
30 – The Metro, Sydney
31 – Prince of Wales, Melbourne

AUGUST
2 – Splendour in the Grass Festival, Byron Bay
3 – The Arena, Brisbane

Slightly more info can be found at Undercover.

Danny injures himelf (again)

Blair posted on Toolband/Army today an article talking about Danny‘s recent injury. Apparently he was attacked by a Sea Urchin or Scorpion Fish. Lucky it wasn’t a Sting Ray I guess…

Anyway, he elaborates to say that he’s had two surgeries on the hand, and that there probably won’t be any Tool or Volto! shows for a little while.

Melvins/Big Business Tour

The Melvins are on the road again later this year following the release of their new album Nude With Boots. As well as the two shows will Jello Biafra mentioned recently, the guys start an extensive tour of the US with Big Business, beginning on the 16th of July.

It’s a long list, and apparently not complete, so rather than typing it all out here, I’ll just give you a link to the Calendar page in Ipecac. According to the post I read, The Melvins will also be hitting Europe later this year. Hopefully Australia is also on the agenda this time.
