PUSCIFER was the musical guest on the February 16 episode of ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (which actually aired the morning of Friday, February 17). You can now watch the "Telling Ghosts" and "Toma" performances below.
"Telling Ghosts" and "Toma" come off PUSCIFER's sophomore album "Conditions Of My Parole", which was released last October via 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."
PUSCIFER's touring bandmembers are Maynard James Keenan, Mat Mitchell, Josh Eustis, Carina Round, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl.
