Puscifer, the band led by Maynard James Keenan of A Perfect Circle and Tool has announced an new album today, dubbed Money Shot. The album will release on October 30th. You can hear the new Puscifer track in the form for the music video for the song ‘Grand Canyon’ at this link or below:
The video is directed by Adam Rothlin, and stars Keenan and Carina Round. Kennan who has described Puscifer in the past as an outlet for his “creative unconscious” commented on the creation of the Money Shot album:
“It’s extremely satisfying to witness simple conversations and ideas transform into completed sonic landscapes..: And to have these stories go above and beyond the initial ideas makes my grumpy heart swell three sizes.”
Puscifer’s line-up was originally intended to be formless, with musicians coming in when Keenan needed, but currently features Round, Mat Mitchell, Juliette Commagere, Devo Keenan (Maynard’s son), Tim Alexander, Jon Theodore, Jeff Friedl and Matt McJunkins among their ranks.
Los Angeles rock band Dekades is streaming their new single “The Drones Are Coming,” off their self titled EP, due out May 26, 2015. Stream it below.
Dekades is a five-piece rock band from Los Angeles, CA. The band continues to make name for themselves in the local music scene playing raw and intense shows all over southern California and opening for notable acts like The Mowgli’s, Dead Sara, Beta Machine and Big Black Delta. The veteran rhythm section of Chris Cano on drums and James Carter on bass rely more upon groove than rote aggression, mimicking the dark undercurrents of a pulsating human heart. Guitarist Josh Benson provides a rich wall of sound upon which multi-instrumentalist Matt Shores applies the chromatic textures. All this beautiful white noise is summoned behind vocalist/guitarist Arden Fisher, a tour de force in her own right.
Fellow musician and friend Matt McJunkins (The Beta Machine, A Perfect Circle) calls the track “sludgy, dirty and sexy.”
The Beta Machine will be performing at the Grand Re-opening of the Guitar Center in Sherman Oaks, CA on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 7 pm. The show is free.
The band features bassist Matt McJunkins and drummer Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide, etc), along with vocalist Claire Acey, guitarist Tommy Dill and Nicolas Perez. Check out the band’s debut video for “The End” here.
