Puscifer and Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan had a recent Twitter conversation with a fan and defended his bandmates against him.

As you can read below, Maynard has responded to a claim that Puscifer is not a band. A fan said ‘I wouldn’t really call Puscifer a band’, and Maynard reacted harshly.

Here is the conversation between those two…

αmirTBO:

“Perhaps this is an unpopular opinion, but is one of the most and best psychedelic bands of this era.”

Whitley commented:

“I wouldn’t really call Puscifer a band. It seems to be one man and hired guns. Not a collaboration of musical ideas.”

And then Maynard chimed in:

“Mat Mitchell is a stand alone force of nature. A true talent. And an essential core of Puscifer writing, engineering, producing, and mixing. Since 2006.

Carina Round completes that trinity. Collaborating with us since 2009. Collaborative writing process starting w Mat Mitchell. A Band.”
