Maynard James Keenan Fought Uphill Battle For Puscifer Success

(Classic Rock) Puscifer mainman Maynard James Keenan says the band have fought an uphill battle to get noticed because of the decline of the music industry. He reports there's no formula to achieving recognition these days - and it's forced the group to rely on their own initiative.

The Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman tells Metal Hammer: "From the time we started recording our first album until we released it, the industry disappeared.

"So Puscifer, as an independent band, we've fought an uphill battle to develop an identity. Because there's no longer that machine to plop us in front of you to say 'this is a thing.'

"You don't see it because there's no longer that beaten-path formula. We're not in Billboard, so we don't exist. We don't exist to most people because we don't appear in those boring, archaic spaces."

He comparers the situation to that of his wine company Caduceus Cellars, who've been a success without outside help. Read more here.
