Puscifer Recruit Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Etc. Members For “Existential Reckoning: Rewired” Album


Puscifer, the experimental alternative rock outfit fronted by Tool, etc. vocalist Maynard James Keenan, have announced a new remix album for their latest studio offering, “Existential Reckoning“. An impressive roster has been assembled to re-envision that 2020 album, including members of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inducted Nine Inch Nails, gold-selling hard rockers Queens Of The Stone Age, British alternative metal exports Bring Me The Horizon and more. Keenan‘s Tool bandmate, bassist Justin Chancellor also took part in one of the tracks.

The remix compilation will carry the title of “Existential Reckoning: Rewired” and is headed for a December 09th release via Puscifer Entertainment/Alchemy Recordings/BMG. Keenan stated of it, “Sometimes it’s just fun to break stuff. Then you latch on to one familiar piece and build something entirely new.”

Puscifer‘s multi-instrumentalist producer Mat Mitchell commented, “‘Existential Reckoning: Rewired‘ is a dataset of revoiced and reassembled orchestrations by friends and members of the larger Pusciforce family.”
