“…Formative, extreme conditions tempering your will and way. Mindful, now, of graceless dullards plodding through their vapid cabaret.” #puscifer2020 #matmitchell @carinaround #gregedwards @sarahsausages @GunnarOlsenDrum @mjkeenan pic.twitter.com/0YOkkXr28w

Existential Reckoning serves as the follow up to their critically acclaimed, high fidelity ranked 2015 album Money $hot. The much anticipated new album has been teased since late last year, beginning with guitarist Mat Mitchell sharing video clips and pictures featuring singer Carina Round via Instagram. It was then noted that the band had been working with Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco while also hinting with the hashtag #Puscifer2021 for a 2021 release date.
Shortly before releasing the first single, the band had another round of teasing the new music, with a clip of a song being shared via Instagram as well.
With the new album, the band will possibly play a few songs at the Mad Cool Festival in 2021, playing alongside Mumford and Sons and Faith No More.
