Puscifer Release Daniel Martin Diaz-Created "Postulous (Re-Imagined by Phantogram)" Video
PUSCIFER RELEASE DANIEL MARTIN DIAZ-CREATED “POSTULOUS (RE-IMAGINED BY PHANTOGRAM)” VIDEO; EXISTENTIAL RECKONING RE-WIRED ARRIVES MARCH 31
PUSCIFER ADDED TO UK’S DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL
Puscifer, who recently shared Phantogram’s contribution to Existential Reckoning: Re-Wired (March 31, Puscifer Entertainment/Alchemy Recordings/BMG): “Postulous (Re-Imagined by Phantogram),” release a Daniel Martin Diaz-created clip for the electrified track: https://youtu.be/V49UBoT2eoU.
Maynard James Keenan shares his thoughts on the serendipitous partnership: “The symbiotic relationship between Daniel Martin Diaz’s visual art and Puscifer’s sonic landscapes on Existential Reckoning, although accidental, is undeniable. Like sentient life forms separated at birth and reunited in the Arizona desert. The cherry on top is the new video he created to accompany the Phantogram ReWire of ‘Postulous.’ Blown away. Thank you, DMD.”
Building on the artwork that has surrounded the alien-infused Existential Reckoning, and its companion release Existential Reckoning: Re-Wired (pre-order here: https://puscifer.lnk.to/ReWired), Diaz explains his approach to the clip: “The concept was to create a futuristic yet nostalgic vision inspired by the overall aesthetic of the music and Carina and Maynard's performance. I decided to use mind clairvoyance and telekinesis waveforms to convey their communication since their voices blend seamlessly in the recording. The video explores various themes, including invasion from other worlds, apocalyptic scenarios, pyramid mysteries, alien abduction, and advanced technologies.”
The video arrives as the band has confirmed a June 8 performance at the venerable, UK-based Download Festival. Puscifer was originally slated for a June 15 concert in London, but due to ongoing circumstances at Brixton Academy, that date has now been cancelled.
Puscifer have released a track-by-track remix album for each of their four studio albums with Existential Reckoning: Re-Wired offering the most eclectic line-up to date. Imagineers include Puscifer band members Mat Mitchell and Carina Round, current touring musicians Greg Edwards (Failure, Autolux) and Gunnar Olsen, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the aforementioned Phantogram, drummer Sarah Jones and Bring Me The Horizon’s Jordan Fish, Queens of The Stone Age guitar player Troy Van Leeuwen with Gone is Gone’s Tony Hajjar, oft-Puscifer contributor Juliette Commagere, keyboard player Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails), BBC 1’s Daniel P. Carter, and Tool’s Justin Chancellor with The Crystal Method’s Scott Kirkland.
The band previously released “A Singularity (Re-imagined by Carina Round),” with Keenan sharing that the song was written for his late dog, MiHo, and simultaneously sharing a self-shot/edited video featuring the beloved pup. Several friends and family members, including A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel, actor Yul Vázquez and Keenan’s daughter, Lei Li, created videos to accompany the piece which were rolled out over the past month, a playlist of those videos can be found here.
