With Puscifer, an even weirder and artsier band than Tool and A Perfect Circle, the two other bands he fronts, Maynard James Keenan says the emphasis is on the live performance. “This show is so much more than just a band regurgitating songs,” he says in a press release announcing the band’s 2016 tour, which includes an April 4 stop at the Akron Civic Theatre. “This is a multi-media performance unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed. There are those who know, and there are those who will know soon enough.”
The tour supports the band's new EP, Money $hot
, which Keenan’s Puscifer Entertainment released earlier this year. Puscifer’s touring line-up features Keenan, guitarist Mat Mitchell, singer Carina Round, drummer Jeff Friedl, keyboardist/vocalist Mahsa Zargaran and bassist Paul Barker (Ministry, Lead Into Gold). Tickets for the Akron show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
