Vocalist Maynard James Keenan spoke in an interview with Revolver Mag and compared their upcoming album to Guns N’ Roses’ “Chinese Democracy”. He said:

“I had this other looming project that can’t seem to go forward, as much as I’ve tried, every magic word in the book that I tried. It’s just no different – and worse because there’s pressure now, and what are we? ‘Chinese Democracy II’ or III? So I saw a window.”

He continued:

“Having conversations with Billy [Howerdel], it seemed like he was ready. If I were to do another Puscifer record, I’m going to get fucking murdered in my sleep because people are going to keep blaming that project for the delay – when it’s not.”
