American Horror Story: Cult is certainly leaning into the phrase “hive mind” with its first official poster for its seventh season.

Fresh off the heels of its creepy, clown-y first teaser trailer that debuted last week, the FX’s horror anthology tweeted the image showing a powder-white woman with clown makeup and the top half of her skull removed, revealing a bee-infested honeycomb brain.

It’s a brainy visual metaphor, but alludes to the theme of the new season, which will deal with a Michigan cult shortly after the 2016 presidential election. After an AHS event at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, at which the title of the newest installment was revealed, co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed more details about the season on Twitter.

AHS: Cult will premiere Sept. 5 at 10 p.m. on FX.
