Maynard JamesLast October, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Maynard James Keenan, frontman of Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer, and accomplished winemaker in addition to his many other projects, has been working with writer/editor and longtime friend Sarah Jensen on an authorized biography. You can see the trailer below:

Until now, Keenan’s fans have had access to only an abridged version of his story. That all will change with the release of A Perfect Union of Contrary Things. The book will release Nov. 8, 2016, via Backbeat Books, for $29.99.

Keenan said to Rolling Stone, “There’s always that perception that whatever you’ve done that’s the largest media-friendly thing in your life, where the world came to know of you, there’s a perception that there was no life before, and that you were nothing before. There’s a lot of stuff that went on in my life that nobody really knows about. So I feel like this is the chance to show the patterns, tell a story.”

Jensen, who has known Keenan for three decades, rolls out that untold story chronicling his journey from his Midwest childhood to his years in the Army to his time in art school, from his stint at a Boston pet shop to his place in the international spotlight and his influence on the disparate fields of contemporary music and regional winemaking. The result is a comprehensive portrayal of a versatile and dedicated artist that pays homage to the people and places that shaped the man and his art.
