Puscifer’s Mat Mitchell: “Songwriting is like playing a three-way game of chess. What you do next is based on what the other player does”

Of the three bands featuring singer Maynard James Keenan – Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer – Puscifer is the only project that does not put guitar front and center. This was most recently evidenced on their last studio offering, 2020’s Existential Reckoning, which was also released in 2021 as a concert recording, Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti.

But Puscifer’s guitarist, Mat Mitchell, does an expert job of providing perfectly placed textural guitar parts, in addition to supplying bass and keyboards with the help of his bandmates.
