Puscifer, the experimental and highly irreverent side project of Maynard James Keenan of Tool, wants you to stay home and tune in this Halloween weekend.

After the group’s pandemic-era streaming event Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti came and went to significant fanfare, the ensemble has since put together two more live stream experiences that are sure to be unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Titled 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, these two seem geared around the band’s 2007 debut “V” is for Vagina and its 2011 follow-up, Conditions of My Parole. Here’s a trailer previewing the madness to come:

“Those with creative minds are restless. Lockdown was only physical, not mental,” said Keenan in a statement, cryptically. “The Pandemic was the perfect springboard and opportunity for us all to flex our creative muscles. Here is more evidence.”

Hildy Berger adds: “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!”

And a bit more details about each streaming event:

V is for Versatile: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring music from the V is for… era

“Puscifer take you into the famed studios of Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound, where everyone from Led Zeppelin to Van Halen to Elton John and Tom Waits recorded classic albums. In this live performance piece, the band invites fans behind-the-scenes as they re-interpret and re-record songs from their V is for… era. Agent Dick Merkin, Major Douche, the briefcase and a few surprise cameos are interspersed amongst the studio footage.”

Parole Violator: A Puscifer Concert Film featuring Conditions of My Parole

“Billy D is in jail, Hildy is on the war path and Peter Merkin, as usual, is up to no good. The saga of the Bergers continues as Puscifer pairs the duo’s ongoing melodrama with a live, track-by-track re-imagination of the band’s critically-acclaimed 2011 album, Conditions of My Parole. Visually, “Parole Violator” is evocative of Keenan’s North Arizona homestead, with Puscifer’s performance married to striking visuals, dramatic lighting, and in a nod to the band’s 2011/2012 tour in support of the collection, closes with a campfire sing-a-long.”

The films will premiere on Oct. 28 at 12:00 pm Pacific/3:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm UK/9:00 pm EU and will remain on-demand for 72 hours. Tickets as well as a selection of limited edition merchandise, exclusive to attendees, are available now via puscifertv.com. Early bird tickets are on-sale through Oct. 21.
