Ahead of their ‘Money $hot’ global streaming event, which airs this Saturday, April 17th from Los Angeles’ historic Mayan Theater (get tickets), Maynard James Keenan-led rockers Puscifer have released a new mini-film titled “Bullet Train to Iowa” — check out the video below.
“The ‘Bullet Train to Iowa’ video is sort of a bridge between the Money $hot Live at the Mayan Theater performance (“Billy D and the Hall of Feathered Serpents”) and the Existential Reckoning Live at Arcosanti performance,” states Keenan. “Kind of like what ‘Rogue One’ is to the Star Wars films, but without the Storm Troopers and snarky robots.”
Today’s announcement reveals more info: “The clip was created by longtime Keenan collaborator, Meats Meier. Meats’ work with Puscifer spans the band’s history, from the band’s debut video, “Queen B,” which saw the introduction of the group’s de facto mascot of the same name, to the special-ops laced “Dozo” video, and most recently, the prescient “Apocalyptical” clip, which features the visual wizard surfing the pandemic-swept streets of Los Angeles. “Bullet Train to Iowa” also features a subtle nod to Money $hot, with the cowboys featured on the album’s cover, serving as bartenders in the newly released footage.”
“Bullet Train To Iowa” appears on Puscifer’s fourth studio album, ‘Existential Reckoning,’ which arrived this past October through Alchemy/BMG.
As noted above, Puscifer’s new virtual gig, officially titled ‘Billy D and The Hall of Feathered Serpents featuring Money $hot by Puscifer’ and featuring a full performance of the band’s 2015 album ‘Money Shot,’ will be available for streaming starting April 17th — get tickets here.
