Donkey Punch the Night is the follow-up to Puscifer's 2011 album Conditions of My Parole and features two new tracks ("Breathe" and "Dear Brother") as well as two covers, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen and "Balls to the Wall" by Accept. Also included are remixes of the new tracks and of one cover.[7]

The EP was released on February 19, 2013 in digital and CD formats, with a vinyl format later released on March 12, 2013.[8] The EP was announced, along with the track listing and a set of Australian tour dates, in November 2012. Frontman Maynard James Keenan said of the EP: "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."[9] The EP features some of the same line-up as Conditions of My Parole, including Keenan on vocals, Carina Round on vocals and guitar, Mat Mitchell on bass, guitar and programming, Juliette Commagere on additional vocals, Josh Eustis on guitar and piano, Matt McJunkins on bass and Jeff Friedl on drums and percussion, as well as guest musicians Zac Rae on piano, Josh Morreau on bass and Claire Acey on vocals.[10] Artists included for the remixes include Drumcell, SONOIO, Jonathan Bates and DJ Silent Servant.
