Gunnar Olsen - Puscifer
Gunnar Olsen is an in demand studio drummer in New York, having worked with greats such as Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, and most recently, Puscifer – which is what brings us together today.
Puscifer is a side project started by Maynard James Keenan, of TOOL fame. Gunnar appears on two studio tracks and the entire live performance of their latest album, “Existential Reckoning – LIVE at Arcosanti”.
New to Puscifer? Here are a few of my favorite songs. They are all very different, from crass comedy to high minded art rock. Puscifer puts a lot of energy into the visual presentation (and the jokes) – they are best appreciated in video format or live on stage.
Check out their latest release, Existential Reckoning, available on all streaming services – or – visit the Puscifer store to purchase physical & collectible copies:
Check out their brilliant live performance of Existential Reckoning, in it’s entirety. Watching this is how I truly fell in love with the album:
Update - Tour Photos!:
18 Months following my interview with Gunnar, the social landscape has changed dramatically. Life is largely back to normal, and Puscifer is on tour. I caught up with the band at their Denver show at the Mission Ballroom on 6 July, 2022. Here are some photos from their performance.
Note: At the time of this publication, Puscifer has announced dates for a series of Fall 2022 shows. You will love the show!
