The seven-song collection features two new songs written by Keenan and Puscifer cohorts Mat Mitchell, Carina Round and Josh Eustis: “Breathe” and “Dear Brother” as well as two covers: Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Accept’s “Balls To The Wall.”  Donkey Punch The Night was recorded in Jerome, Ariz. in Keenan’s Caduceus Cellars (www.caduceus.org) with the same roster from 2011’s Conditions of My Parole (Keenan, Mitchell, Round, Eustis, bass player Matt McJunkins and drummer Jeff Friedl) and guests Zac Rae (piano), Juliette Commagere (vocals), Josh Morreau (bass) and Claire Acey (vocals).

Remixes of three of the songs round-out the release with contributions from Los Angeles techno wizard Drumcell, Big Black Delta (aka Jonathan Bates, formerly of Mellowdrone and touring guitarist for M83) and Central American DJ, Silent Servant, who is well known for his mash-up of post-punk and techno.

Conditions of My Parole was released in October of 2011 and was quickly followed by a storied Halloween performance on The Late Show with David Letterman complete with Keenan in costume and a keyboard solo by Paul Shaffer.   The band returned to late night television in February with a Jimmy Kimmel Live performance that was equally unique, featuring Keenan and Round singing behind video monitors a la human bobbleheads.  The band has completed two North American tours behind the sophomore release including a stop at the 2012 Bonnaroo Festival.
