Maynard James Keenan Biography Set to Arrive in Fall 2016
He's one of rock's most respected and entertaining frontmen and soon fans will get a little more insight into the life and times of Maynard James Keenan. According to a new post on Puscifer's Facebook page, a Maynard James Keenan biography will be released via Backbeat Books.
In the posting, it's revealed that the biography is currently on schedule for a fall 2016 street date. "Lots of work still to be done, but today's top priority: feeling grateful to everybody who's been there for us throughout this project. That means you," says Sarah Jensen, who will reportedly work on the book with Keenan.
The timing is good for a book as Puscifer is planning a release of their Money Shot album for later this month and should continue support into 2016. In addition, Tool have been in the studio for the better part of a year and there's hope that 2016 will be the year we finally get the follow-up to 10,000 Days. Keenan has also rocked as vocalist for A Perfect Circle, but at present nothing is on the books for the band.
At present, Tool have just a sole appearance on their tour schedule, agreeing to play the Monster Mash festival in Phoenix on Oct. 31. Puscifer, meanwhile, will take up the bulk of Keenan's stage time for the rest of the year. The band will play the same Monster Mash festival in Phoenix a day later, Nov. 1, then set out on a leg of tour dates that continues through mid-December. See their shows here.
