Puscifer continues its trend of releasing a whole bunch of music by giving us a new EP Donkey Punch The Night which will be released just before the Australian tour next year. From the press release:
“While continuing our tradition of releasing a few new songs at a time. I also had an itch that needed scratching,
and that itch was ‘Balls To The Wall.’ Which was followed by an even harder to reach itch known as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’
And scratch them we did.” – Maynard James Keenan

Update: Here’s some further details on the EP courtesy of Antiquiet:
The 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, Matt McJunkins and Jeff Friedl) and guests Zac Rae (piano), Juliette Commagere (vocals), Josh Morreau (bass) and Claire Acey (vocals).
Remixes of the four 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), Sonoio (Italian multi-instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini of Modwheelmood and touring keyboard player for Muse and NIN) and Central American DJ, Silent Servant, who is well known for his mash-up of post-punk and techno.
