Audio companion soundtracks of both of Puscifer‘s recently debuted livestream concerts have officially come home.

V Is For Versatile: A Puscifer Concert Film Featuring Music From The V Is For… Era‘ soundtrack has been issued simply as “V Is For Versatile“. The official description for that film (and now live album) runs as follows:

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.’

Also arriving today is the audio release of ‘Parole Violator: A Puscifer Concert Film Featuring Conditions Of My Parole‘. Rechristened “Parole Violator” for its audio release, the following was originally said of its film version:

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.’

While digital variants of both of these companion soundtracks are now available here, physical releases will follow on December 09th, with pre-orders available via To sweeten the pot, the group have also released the below live performance of “Indigo Children” from “V Is For Versatile“.
