Puscifer release title track from Money Shot

You may have taken a quick listen to the 30 second Money Shot snippets on Amazon yesterday, but today it appears the second full track has been released from the album. This time around it’s a much rockier number and the smooth poppy sounds of Grand Canyon. It’s certainly not a Tool track, but will appeal more to those who prefer their music with a harder edge.

Also with the track is a new Maynard James Keenan interview on Rolling Stone by Dan Epstein. If the interview is anything to go by, it seems as though the new Puscifer album may have a more serious one than their last two:

It seems like Puscifer’s trademark sense of humor has taken something of a back seat to heavier themes on this record.
Yeah, I guess so. I can see how someone would think that, but I see the humor all the way through it, even in the heavier tracks. On our earlier stuff, we completely separated it — “Cuntry Boner” over here, and then “Indigo Children” over here. Here, they’ve been integrated more. It’s like a fine wine that’s been aging in a large cask for two years, instead of being right out of the press and into the bottle.

They do ask a quick Tool question, with a not unexpected response:

So, last question… what’s up with the new Tool record?
I write lyrics and melodies to music. If I don’t have music, I can’t.

I thought other than a couple of songs Conditions was a pretty serious album.

I like this song a lot. Matter of fact puscifer has really grown on me over time. And seeing them live in Pittsburgh was honestly one of the best concerts I’ve ever been too. And I’ve seen tool 6-7 times

“I write lyrics and melodies to music. If I don’t have music, I can’t.” (Sept 14, 2015)

This is really depressing. I was hoping the Tool album was at least starting to get close, but they haven’t even gotten him music to start lyrics. Good thing that lawsuit that has been holding everything up is out of the way – lol. Glad I called BS on that excuse. No chance this album drops in 2016. No chance.

HB has a good point, why would Maynard discuss progress on a Tool album when promoting his side project? & I don’t think he meant he didn’t have any music, I think he meant that the reason it’s not finished is because they are slow in getting him a lot of songs. Blair mentioned he had already heard the early stages of Maynard’s vocals in two songs

I think we can stop calling Puscifer his “side project”. Since this is obviously his main project, and Tool is on the side. How many years must he be mainly focused on Puscifer before we recognize it as an established band/brand.

I’m not gonna argue the definition “side-project” with you, that’s not what I was focusing on.. But myself & many others are more likely to associate Maynard with Tool than A Perfect Circle, puscifer.. Even though he has made more projects with the latter recently, I still consider it something he does when he’s not focused on Tool. Which he’s not, cause apparently he has no music

I feel like I just heard Maynard singing over a primus track on this particular song
