The great Maynard James Keenan is back! Unfortunately not with a new record from his visionary rock band Tool. As the members of Tool try to get on the same page fans are left with a new release from Keenan’s solo project Puscifer; a group that has remained active since the late 2007 release of their debut V is for Vagina. Releasing various remix albums and EPs along the way, Keenan has finally readied Puscifer’s sophomore record Conditions of My Parole, due out on October 18th.

Regardless of how you feel about pop punk, It’s difficult not to admire a band that’s so forthcoming in its intentions; New Jersey’s Man Overboard has been proudly flying the “Defend Pop Punk” banner for the past couple of years, tearing through a slew of EPs and split releases pulsing with upbeat, nearly effortless songs that are as infectious as they are heartfelt. The full-throttle pace, unapologetically sweet melodies and and self-aware lyrics about girls, relationships and (of course) the inevitable breakup may not be your cuppa, but let’s all admit that Man Overboard do it better than just about everyone.
