Puscifer Share ‘Apocalyptical,’ First New Song in 5 Years

Tool had been rolling along on the road — until the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Once that tour got postponed, singer Maynard James Keenan instead (in all likelihood) figured it was a good time to roll out a new Puscifer song.

It starts off with a guy skateboarding in a hazmat suit in Los Angeles and kinda just goes off from there. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Keenan explained a bit about the song and how it was made. “Try it again tomorrow or try it again a week from now, but don’t let yourself off the hook. Force it. And then all of a sudden you’ll find when you get past this, it’s ...
