Post #235: Carina Round

***Just released a new single for her upcoming solo album.  
Performing as co-vocalist/guitarist in Puscifer, and as the 
opening act on the current tour.***

Unfortunately, the only proof I have that I attended the Puscifer show last night is my ticket stub and a couple of t-shirts.  For those of us that are fans of Maynard James Keenan and his other endeavors (Tool and A Perfect Circle whom I posted HERE), we know the standing rule: NO VIDEO and NO PHOTOGRAPHY.  As much as I would have liked to come home with some video, which believe me would have been some amazing footage, I always want to respect the wishes of the artist.  And unfortunately, my tweet to Maynard asking for permission went unanswered.  It was worth a shot.

The entire performance was awesome, and was unlike any concert I had ever been to.  It was 50% concert, 25% spectacle, and 25% comedy/theatrical performance.  If you haven't had a chance to yet, you can check out my Puscifer post from last month HERE.

As far as the concert was concerned, I love the direction Maynard has taken Puscifer with the addition of a female vocalist.  It compliments Maynard's voice perfectly.  The female I am speaking of is Carina Round.  Such a beautiful voice!

From Wolverhampton, England, Carina has released 4 albums since 2001, with her most recent being a 5 song EP from 2009 entitled, Things You Should Know, which after sampling a few of the songs, I'll be purchasing tonight.

In the fall of that same year, she would begin to sing with Puscifer after turning down an offer from Billy Corgan to join Smashing Pumpkins as their bassist.

Earlier this month, she released her first single "The Last Time" from her new upcoming solo album.

And earlier this week, she sat for FILTER magazine taping another new song, "Set Fire".

I'm glad I found this great live video, as it eases the disappointment of not getting video of my own.

Please support this artist!!!
