Puscifer are gearing up for their new album, Existential Reckoning, scheduled to arrive on October 30th via Alchemy Recordings/Puscifer Entertainment/BMG. To celebrate their overall fourth studio effort, the group has announced a Livestream event, Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti. The Global virtual concert will take place on the record release day, October 30th, at 3 PM PST / 6 PM EST and will remain on-demand for 72 hours. The streaming will be from the desert of Arizona, Arcosanti. Livestream tickets, along with limited-edition merchandise, are available at this location.
Maynard James Keenan comments:
“If you’re not familiar with Arcosanti, I highly recommend that you look it up. It’s one of a long list of examples of architects, artists, actors, musicians, writers, and poets. People who are not necessarily from Arizona but came here and found that creative tick that burrows under your skin here, something that sets you in a motion to respond to this, what I consider to be equal parts inspirational and hostile, environment. It’s not easy to survive here. There’s already been a dust devil that’s whipped through here, rattlesnakes, crazy red ants outside of my sleeping quarters which tried to consume my dog. We feel like we’re on the edge of the world. Imagine if you were an extra-terrestrial traveler and you landed in the Southwest and wanted to assume an identity here and blend in, this would probably be a good spot to do that.”
Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents and co-producer of the upcoming Livestream adds:
“We could do a live stream from anywhere – a sound stage, an empty theater. But this location, at Arcosanti, in the heart of the unforgiving yet beautiful Arizona desert, adds another dimension to Puscifer’s music.”
“Maynard is an artist in everything he does, from his music to his wine to his farm-to-table restaurant. The common thread running through all of it is that he doesn’t take any shortcuts – and he’s chosen an environment that doesn’t allow for shortcuts. ’Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti’ promises not just to be an experience, but to be an insight into that desert world that fuels and inspires Maynard and Puscifer. The only thing better would be to enjoy the show with a glass of Maynard’s Caduceus wine in hand.”
