Joshua Leeds Eustis (born 1977) is an American musician, singer-songwriter and record producer, best known as a member of the electronic music act, Telefon Tel Aviv. He served as a touring member for industrial rock act Nine Inch Nails in 2013 and collaborated with Maynard James Keenan's solo project Puscifer. Eustis currently releases music under the moniker Sons of Magdalene.

Biography[edit]

Eustis formed Telefon Tel Aviv with his high school friend Charles Cooper in 1999. The duo released their debut album, Fahrenheit Fair Enough, in 2001 through Hefty Records. This was followed by Map of What Is Effortless in 2004 and Immolate Yourself in 2009.[1] On January 22, 2009, Charles Cooper died, leaving Eustis as the sole member of the project.[2]

In 2011, Eustis co-produced Puscifer's second studio album, Conditions of My Parole.[3] He also contributed to Puscifer's Donkey Punch the Night EP and All Re-Mixed Up remix album in 2013.[4][5] In 2013, it was announced that Eustis became a live member of Nine Inch Nails for the Twenty Thirteen Tour.[6] He mainly took the bass duties during the early tour, due to bassist Eric Avery's departure from the band.[7] After bassist Pino Palladino's inclusion to the new line-up, he performed mainly on keyboards.[8][9] In December 2013, it was announced that Eustis will not be performing with the band on the Tension 2014 tour.[10]

In 2014, Eustis announced that he will be releasing a solo debut album as Sons of Magdalene, a moniker he started to use in 2007, when his father was diagnosed with cancer.[11] The album, titled Move to Pain, was partially recorded before Cooper's death and will be released on June 24, 2014, through Audraglint Recordings.[12]
