"Preachers from Outer Space!" is the title of a 1994 live album by rock band Daniel Amos, released on Stunt Records.

"Preachers" chronicles a bit of what the band was doing in those "missing years" of 1978-1981; after much of the "Horrendous Disc" album had been finished, and about four years before it would finally be released by its label. The show starts with a few of the band's earlier country/rock songs like "Shotgun Angel," and "Happily Married Man," and then introduces the audience to many songs from the still unreleased album. Also included on this collection are the rare concert favorites, "Mary Baker Eddy" and "Secret Scripts & 3D Glasses" - neither of which has ever been recorded by the band for an album or released officially on any other project.
