Puscifer have the right idea. Remain incognito and store things in briefcases, hang out in the desert in Arizona. You can watch and listen to their latest exploits below in the video for “Theorem.”
Puscifer, who celebrated their critically-lauded fourth full-length album, Existential Reckoning (Alchemy Recordings/Puscifer Entertainment/BMG) on Friday, have released a video for the song “Theorem” (https://youtu.be/bfKV0WmjtT8).
The video, which was directed by Maynard James Keenan, offers an update on the search for Pusciverse desert dweller Billy D. The clip’s arrival follows an eventful weekend for the group that features Keenan, Mat Mitchell, Carina Round, Greg Edwards and Gunnar Olsen, with a wildly successful release day livestream event, “Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti,” and saw the 12-song album sitting atop Apple’s Rock Album chart since release.
Keenan said: “People ask us ‘What is in the Briefcase?’ ‘Puscifer.’ And what is Puscifer?’ ‘What is Puscifer is what Puscifer is.’ ‘Like a paradox?’ ‘More than one.’ Sigh.”Existential Reckoning (https://Puscifer.lnk.to/ExistentialReckoning) has also been met with widespread critical praise. Stereogum said the music is “funky” and “darkly playful,” Billboard dubbed it “slinky,” Consequence of Sound said the collection is “comparable to early ‘80s new wavers, as well as modern acts like Radiohead,” American Songwriter described Existential Reckoning as “seductive,” and SPIN said its “infectious enough to make you want to dance the blight away and ponderous enough to make your mind work up a sweat while doing so.”
