Existential Reckoning: Rewired is a dataset of revoiced and reassembled orchestrations by friends and members of the larger Pusciforce family,” says PUSCIFER producer and guitarist Mat Mitchell.

“Sometimes it’s just fun to break stuff,” added vocalist Maynard James Keenan. “Then you latch on to one familiar piece and build something entirely new.”
