Outside his work fronting prog/metal masters Tool, Maynard James Keenan has long maintained a vastly different side project, Puscifer — and later this year, the ensemble will head out on its first proper U.S. tour since 2016.

Announced on Tuesday, the Existential Reckoning tour is named after the group’s 2020 album, and will be a mix of theater and concert, according to a (highly stylized) news release:

Pusciforce Agents Merkin, Round, and Mitchell have intercepted a coded message, which appears to be extraterrestrial in nature, emanating from the mysterious and elusive Briefcase, that translates as follows: “An Existential Reckoning is imminent.”

Agent Dick Merkin went on to say, “Utilizing a hybridized form of highly classified 1st Order Triangulation and Uber Eats delivery tracking software, we have been able to construct a predictive model mapping out specific coordinates for future sightings/appearances of this afore mentioned Briefcase. We will be there. We will be ready. Let the probing Begin.”

For an idea of the Puscifer live experience, here’s a performance of “Bedlamite,” taken from Puscifer’s 2020 live stream concert event Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti:
