PUSCIFER, the eclectic music-meets-comedy troupe helmed by Maynard James Keenan (TOOL, A PERFECT CIRCLE), returns to the road on February 23 in support of its recently released album "Conditions Of My Parole" (Oct. 18, Puscifer Entertainment).
The band's live performances are not to be missed. Keenan brings the unconventional atmosphere of the Verde Valley to life with a musically driven evening that merges technology, quirky characters and comedy. The Boston Globe referred to the shows as "musical theater" and the Philadelphia Weekly described the set as an "engaging performance with hilarious pre-recorded between-song skits featuring MJK alter-egos Major Douche and white-trash hero Billy D."
The band celebrated the release of their sophomore album with an in-character Halloween performance on "The Late Show With David Letterman".
PUSCIFER's touring band members are Maynard James Keenan, Mat Mitchell, Josh Eustis, Carina Round, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl.
Tickets for all shows go on-sale Friday, December 16 via venue box offices, as well as Ticketmaster and Live Nation web sites. A limited number of VIP packages, featuring wine tastings and VIP experiences will be available simultaneously via puscifer.frontgatetickets.com.
