Puscifer, the eclectic music-meets-comedy troupe helmed by Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle), kick off their first North American tour in support of the band’s sophomore release, Conditions of My Parole (Oct. 18, Puscifer Entertainment), on Nov. 7 in Seattle. Additional dates will be announced shortly.
Puscifer will make their television debut on Halloween with a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
The band’s live performances are not to be missed. A musically driven evening that merges technology, quirky characters and comedy, Spin referred to the shows as an “X-rated episode of Hee-Haw” and the Las Vegas Review Journal described the set as “a performance art spectacle equal parts comedy cabaret show and guerilla theater.”
Puscifer‘s core and touring band members are Maynard James Keenan, Mat Mitchell, Josh Eustis, Carina Round, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl. Carina Round will act as support for all dates.
