Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on September 21, 2022

With a theatric approach to their craft, the band will launch “V is for Versatile: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring music from the V is for… era” and “Parole Violator: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring Conditions of My Parole.” late October.

Back during the darkest times of the pandemic era, Puscifer proved to be a beckon of creative resilience during an otherwise bleak 2020. The band produced arguably one of the best streaming performances of the era with the release of Existential Reckoning: Live At Arcosanti, a production hailed universally and one that set a new precedent for the platform.

Now, Puscifer is again asserting their creative breadth with the confirmation of not one, but two concert-centric feature films.  V is for Versatile: A Puscifer Concert Film will feature music from the V is for Vagina era and Parole Violator: A Puscifer Concert Film will be scored with the 2011 album, Conditions of My Parole.

Stream the trailer below.

The ambitious project follows the successful 2021 launch of Billy D and The Hall of Feathered Serpents featuring Money $hot by Puscifer, an effort that underscored the band’s embrace of visual theatrics as part of their complete presentation.

Speaking of the continued productivity that has marked the current chapter of Puscifer, Maynard James Keenan explained how the pandemic restrictions did not limit the band’s artistic drive. “Those with creative minds are restless. Lockdown was only physical, not mental,” says Keenan. “The Pandemic was the perfect springboard and opportunity for us all to flex our creative muscles. Here is more evidence.”

Puscifer’s Hildy Berger also weighed in, “When life gives you lemons, don’t stop at making lemonade. Plant summa them lemons, grow some goddamn lemon trees, and change your pissy world view. Hell! Make some dang Limoncello!”

As for what to expect from the features, V is for Versatile: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring music from the V is for… era offer fans a live performance depiction from Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Sound. With a behind-the-scenes vantage point, Puscifer will re-interpret and re-record songs from their V is for… era. Longtime fans will be happy to see Agent Dick Merkin, Major Douche, the briefcase and a few surprise cameos are interspersed in the footage.

In Parole Violator: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring Conditions of My Parole, the band embraces the Northern Arizona desert landscape as the backdrop for the ongoing storyline of The Bergers unfolds. The cast of character include Billy D who is in jail, a tyrannical Hildy and a forever-scheming Peter Merkin. The production offers a nod to the band’s 2011/2012 tour in support of the album and comes to a conclusion with a campfire sing-a-long.

Both presentations premiere Oct. 28 at 12:00 pm PT. Both will be available on-demand for 72 hours. Tickets in addition to limited edition merch exclusive to attendees are currently available via puscifertv.com.
