Puscifer enlisted a variety of collaborators and associates, including Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Phantogram, members of Tool, and more, to reimagine their most recent LP, 2020's Existential Reckoning, for a new remix album, Existential Reckoning: Rewired. It's due out March 31 via Puscifer Entertainment/Alchemy Recordings/BMG, and you can see the tracklist below. We've launched pre-orders on an exclusive vinyl variant, pressed to clear with black smoke double vinyl and limited to 500 copies. It's out March 31: pre-order yours while they last.

Puscifer have also shared a video for Carina Round's reimagining of "A Singularity," shot and edited by Maynard James Keenan. It pays tribute to Keenan's dog, MiHo, and he says, "On Oct. 7, 2021, I lost my Muse. Deadly Little MiHo lost her 2 year battle with pancreatitis and kidney disease. We thought we lost her in late 2019, so I panicked and wrote her this song. We were certain she was done for. But we were blessed with a second chance and a bit more time. I rarely share things like this. Too painful. But this one can’t be kept bottled up. As I have mentioned before, she has been hiding in most of my vocal tracks since 2005. She was either in or near the vocal booth every time I tracked. Her sigh, her bark, sniffle, sneeze. Her jingling collar. Her squeaky toys. Usually poorly timed."

Talking about re-working "A Singularity," Round says, "Maynard’s vocal for this song is synonymously a sorrowful hymn and a siren of celebration. I wanted the main vocal and the bass and drums to be anchors in a sea of jubilant chaos. A kind of controlled cacophony of celebratory joy. Familiar, but a bit unnerving. The horns and saxes at the end are all moving together but somehow so loose, dispersing off into foam and then coming back together into one harmonious wave and then breaking off again, cascading. I feel excited when it’s over and like I want to get back on the ride. Birds, a charm of finches bookend the song. You can feel their energy. And within, there’s Maynard’s lone whistle, mimicking them. The one who keeps them alive and in turn draws his own life force. The synergy of composure and chaos in a dance reverence."

Puscifer have festival dates coming up this summer, and they've also announced new dates in the US and Europe with Night Club, including an Atlantic City, NJ show at Hard Rock Casino on June 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 20 at 10 AM, and you can see all dates below.
