Secret Agents. Dancing Aliens. Video Vignettes. Puscifer’s live outings aren’t really concerts but more of a music-meets-live theatre experience. As a writer recently said: “There are regular rock bands and then there is Puscifer.” Be sure to check out the Official Puscifer Website for music, videos, news, and tickets for all upcoming tour dates.
