Maynard James Keenan Pays Tribute To His Late Dog With New Puscifer Video, U.S. & European Tours Lined Up


After being met with a delay, Puscifer‘s new remix album “Existential Reckoning: Rewired” has now been scheduled for a March 31st release date via Pusicfer Entertainment/Alchemy Recordings/BMG. Fronted by Maynard James Keenan of Tool/A Perfect Circle fame, that record finds various guests putting their own spin on the songs featured on Puscifer‘s current studio album, “Existential Reckoning“.

Among those to participate are Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross of the acclaimed industrial metal outfit Nine Inch Nails, Troy Van Leeuwen of gold-certified hard rock outfit Queens Of The Stone Age and Keenan‘s Tool bandmate, Justin Chancellor.

Below you can take in a video for a reworking of the song “A Singularity“, which was overseen by Puscifer co-vocalist Carina Round. The video itself serves as a dedication to Keenan‘s late dog MiHo. He explained:

“On Oct. 7, 2021, I lost my Muse. Deadly Little MiHo lost her 2 year battle with pancreatitis and kidney disease. We thought we lost her in late 2019, so I panicked and wrote her this song. We were certain she was done for. But we were blessed with a second chance and a bit more time. I rarely share things like this. Too painful. But this one can’t be kept bottled up.

As I have mentioned before, she has been hiding in most of my vocal tracks since 2005. She was either in or near the vocal booth every time I tracked. Her sigh, her bark, sniffle, sneeze. Her jingling collar. Her squeaky toys. Usually poorly timed.
