Puscifer return to the ring on March 17 as the band launches the Money $hot – Round 2 tour, kicking off at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside, Calif. Additional dates will be announced in early January.
Maynard James Keenan said of the live performance, “This show is so much more than just a band regurgitating songs. 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.” Guitar player/producer Mat Mitchell added, “Round 1 was a blast for us, looking forward to more bone breaking fun in Round 2!”
Puscifer kicked off the Money $hot – Round 1 tour the day after the release of Money $hot, playing the Monster Mash Festival on Nov. 1 with the next six weeks spent trekking from coast-to-coast presenting sold out performances that marry the concept of concert and theater. The Kansas City Star, in a live review, said “not much emerges from the music world these days that feels genuinely unique, but Puscifer’s Money $hot tour qualifies. Each component of the show was first-rate: the sound mix, the videos, the musical performance and the theatrics. It all added up to a show that was as memorable as it was unique.”
Money $hot was released on Oct. 30 via Keenan’s Puscifer Entertainment. The album landed at #1 on Billboard’s Independent Music chart, #2 on the Alternative Albums chart and #30 on the Top 200. In a four star review, Revolver Magazine described the album as “a meditative and hypnotic – not to mention wholly engaging – offering” and both Crave and Kerrang placed the release on their year end, best of lists, with Crave saying, “The yin and yang of masculine and feminine energy interweave a pulsing eroticism that curls itself around the mind like one of Keenan’s many grapevines.”
