There’s “No Temple” to Find in Pupil Slicer’s Latest Single


British mathcore outfit Pupil Slicer have got a lot going on lately, with their sophomore album Blossom coming out this June and an European tour with Boris slated to start later this month. And while the quartet continue to draw from their inspirations from books, movies and videogames, their latest single “No Temple” feels more like they’re taking a page out of genre masters The Dillinger Escape Plan at points.

Speaking about this single specifically, vocalist and guitarist Kate Davies said this latest track stands out among the album’s entire 47 minute runtime.

“‘Blossom’ is a story that encapsulates a wide gamut of intense emotions and a roller coaster of events over the 47-minute runtime. Likewise, the musical elements are also equally diverse whilst maintaining a cohesion to what’s going on at that point in the album.

“The feedback we received for our first single has been overwhelmingly positive but let’s face it – not what a lot of people were expecting from a band named ‘Pupil Slicer.’

“Here is a sample from the opposite end of the musical range that Blossom encapsulates – ‘No Temple’ is the heaviest song we’ve ever written.”

Blossom will be released on June 2 via Prosthetic Records, but you can preorder yourself a copy or presave it on your favorite streaming platform today.
