PUSCIFER TO TAKE VIEWERS DEEP INTO THE HEART OF THE ARIZONA DESERT WITH OCTOBER 30 GLOBAL LIVESTREAM: EXISTENTIAL RECKONING: LIVE AT ARCOSANTI. TICKETS & EXCLUSIVE MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE NOW.
Puscifer, who recently announced the release of their fourth full-length album, Existential Reckoning (Oct. 30, Alchemy Recordings/Puscifer Entertainment/BMG), take fans into the high desert of Arizona with a visually-stunning, livestream concert experience dubbed Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti.
Puscifer have become known for their kinetic live productions, a merging of music and the theatrical. Over the years, concertgoers have been treated to live Luchadores, a “Hee Haw” themed revue, and a desert-set campfire replete with an Airstream trailer. What does the band have in mind for their first performance of the pandemic era, and the debut of their Existential Reckoning production? Only Billy D. knows for sure, but one thing is for certain, it will be unlike anything Puscifer has done before.
“If you’re not familiar with Arcosanti, I highly recommend that you look it up,” says Maynard James Keenan of the location. “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.”
Livestream tickets, as well as a selection of limited edition merchandise exclusive to attendees, are available now via pusciferlive.com. The livestream debuts on Oct. 30 at 3:00 pm Pacific/6:00 pm Eastern/10:00 pm UK/11:00 pm EU and remains on-demand for 72 hours.
