Official press release:

London, UK mathcore band Pupil Slicer has today premiered a bass playthrough for "Momentary Actuality" via Gear Gods, with bassist Luke Fabian sharing some words on the songs creative process ahead of the band's upcoming festival appearances at Boomtown and ArcTanGent in the UK - full touring dates below. "Momentary Actuality" is taken from Pupil Slicer's acclaimed and US Billboard charting second album, Blossom.

Pupil Slicer's Luke Fabian shared:

Although "Momentary Actuality" is a relatively short track, it has a lot of different parts and I feel it was carefully and considerately placed into the album. Likewise, I tried to reflect this in the bass parts for the tracks. Using octaves on the main riffs for thickness, some slap in the mathcore type 'verse', a melodic and arpeggiated progression in the chorus and some dissonant chords in the middle section to thicken the guitar panic chords.

"This is a fun song to play live, and to do backing vocals on. This was the third single released from Blossom and a firm staple in the set list for the foreseeable. The playthrough was shot at Patronaat, Haarlem in the Netherlands on our Tour with Boris earlier this year in May. For the record, and live I used this 5 string Ernie Ball MusicMan Stingray, tuned AEADG.
