A Perfect Circle, Primus & Puscifer Announce New EP For Maynard James Keenan’s 60th Birthday


Maynard James Keenan, the enigmatic musician and entrepreneur at the forefront of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, will be ringing in his impending 60th birthday (April 17th) with a string of celebratory shows this year.

That run has been dubbed his ‘Sessanta‘ and will find the storied vocalist mixing things up with his cohorts in A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, along with members of Primus. Members from each band are expected to share the stage together each night, delivering special collaborative performances.

In the spirit of that upcoming celebratory trek, Keenan has just announced the upcoming release of a companion EP titled, “Sessanta E.P.P.P.“. Each of the three aforementioned bands involved in that tour will be contributing a new track to that EP, all of which were co-written by Keenan. In addition to being made available at the shows, that effort will be available online for streaming on March 29th.

You can pre-order the webstore exclusive vinyl variant through, while a tour exclusive autographed variant will be made available each night of the run. 75 copies of that variant will be made available each night, with different color variant exclusive to each city.

The trek itself is a nod to a similar live celebration Keenan had for his 50th birthday. Tomorrow, March 22nd will see the release of that performance, “Cinquanta: A 50th Birthday Celebration For Maynard James Keenan – Live“.
