Puscifer to Release New EP, Donkey Punch The Night

PUSCIFER RELEASE NEW EP
DONKEY PUNCH THE NIGHT ON FEB. 19

Puscifer
Puscifer, the Northern Arizona-based band helmed by Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle), will release an eight-song EP titled Donkey Punch The Night on Feb. 19 via Puscifer Entertainment.

"While continuing our tradition of releasing a few new songs at a time," explained Keenan. "I also had an itch that needed scratching, and that it was 'Balls To The Wall.' Which was followed by an even harder to reach itch known as 'Bohemian Rhapsody.' And scratch them we did."

The collection features two new songs written by Keenan and Puscifer cohorts Mat Mitchell, Carina Round and Josh Eustis: "Breathe" and "Dear Brother" as well as two covers: Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Accept's "Balls To The Wall." Donkey Punch The Night was recorded in Jerome, Ariz. in Keenan's Caduceus Cellars with the same roster from 2011's Conditions of My Parole (Keenan, Mitchell, Round, Eustis, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl) and guests Zac Rae (piano), Juliette Commagere (vocals), Josh Morreau (bass) and Claire Acey (vocals).

Remixes of the four songs round-out the release with contributions from Los Angeles techno wizard Drumcell, Big Black Delta (aka Jonathan Bates, formerly of Mellowdrone and touring guitarist for M83), Sonoio (Italian multi-instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini of Modwheelmood and touring keyboard player for Muse and NIN) and Central American DJ, Silent Servant, who is well known for his mash-up of post-punk and techno.

Puscifer recently announced their first tour dates outside of North America with the band performing three shows in Australia as well as performances at Lollapalooza Brazil and Lollapalooza Chile.
