The band's first album in five years, 'Existential Reckoning,' is due out Oct. 30.
Maynard James Keenan has been on a tear lately. The Tool frontman released the first album by his main gig in more than a decade last year, Fear Inoculum, and Friday morning (Sept. 18) he revealed that the long-awaited new album from his supergroup Puscifer, Existential Reckoning, is due out on Oct. 30.
The first taste of the follow-up to 2015's Money Shot, the truly odd, but very funky "The Underwhelming," also dropped. "Formative Extreme conditions/ Tempering/ Your will and way/ Mindful now/ Of graceless dullards/ Plodding through/ Their vapid cabaret," Keenan sings on the spooky, soulful track with the twisty lyrics that include a reference to the "king's new clothing" in the chorus.
