Puscifer announces live performance of Existential Reckoning, streamed from Arcosanti

The experimental town will play host to album launch at the end of the month.

Puscifer has announced, to mark the upcoming release of their album Existential Reckoning, will be streaming a live performance on 30 October.

The show will feature the band performing the album in full from the town of Arcosanti which, as you can see from the trailer below, is a beautifully space-age collection of strange architecture, making it a perfectly bizarre setting for the show.


Frontman Maynard James Keenan said of the unique town: “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 traveller 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.”

Existential Reckoning arrives on 30 October, with the live stream kicking off that same day. You can get tickets for the stream over at pusciferlive.com, with early bird pricing up until 25 October.
