Puscifer “What Is…” mockumentary/concert film (Nov. 26 release)

I’ve always thought to really understand Puscifer you have to see them live. I’m sure most of you that have witnessed the live spectacle feel similarly.  “What Is…” as in ‘What is Puscifer?,” a question the band members (and myself) have faced repeatedly since Maynard brought what was once a Mr. Show skit to life.  This is part mockumentary/part concert film, as well as an audio release of the concert film, both available on Nov. 26.  The mockumentary and concert film will be one continuous film on the DVD.

Puscifer What Is… Puscifer Entertainment 26 November 2013
PUSCIFER SET NOV. 26 RELEASE DATE FOR WHAT IS… FEATURE-LENGTH DVD AND ACCOMPANYING SOUNDTRACK Puscifer answers the enduring question of what exactly Puscifer is with a new DVD and accompanying soundtrack release titled What Is…, which are set for a Nov. 26 release via Puscifer Entertainment. The two-hour sketch comedy show-meets-concert film builds upon and punctuates the multimedia format of the band’s live performances with skits from the stable of Puscifer characters such as Billy D, Hildy and Major Douche woven into the performance footage of the Maynard James Keenan led quintet. “Being surrounded by so many talented and creative people is an endless source of inspiration. This film only scratches the surface of how deep our proverbial rabbit hole goes. What Is… Puscifer is meant to conjure as many questions as it answers,” explained Maynard James Keenan.  An accompanying soundtrack will be released simultaneously. Puscifer’s concerts have been praised for their out-of-the-box take on what a live performance can be, with the Orange County Register saying “the production… matters as much as the music” and describing the event as “a thought-provoking, senses-jabbing statement on a variety of topics.”  The Dallas Morning News called the evening “an idiosyncratic experience” while the Austin Chronicle referred to the concert as a “multimedia prop dramedy.”
