Pupil Slicer shares ‘Momentary Actuality’ single/video from upcoming album ‘Blossom’

London-based Pupil Slicer has shared the new single and video “Momentary Actuality,” the third and final pre-release single from its upcoming second album, “Blossom,” due June 2, 2023, via Prosthetic Records. The video expands upon Pupil Slicer’s hard science fiction/cosmic horror rock opera storyline for “Blossom,” with David Gregory once again providing visual direction; watch it below.

“‘Momentary Actuality’ serves as the starting point for the story of ‘Blossom’ and also encapsulates a musical mission statement for the album,” the band said. “The song encompasses a broad range of styles that are found on the rest of ‘Blossom.’

“This song really showcases our progression as musicians on a technical, as well as compositional level, with a lot of care taken to craft a very satisfying structure to the over-the-top riffs and breakdowns we’ve come to be known for.”

Pre-order “Blossom” here, where the record is available on multiple physical formats, including various vinyl variants and CD.

Drawing influence from a myriad of genre classics across books, movies and videogames, Pupil Slicer mastermind Kate Davies has crafted a story that conveys personal experiences via an otherworldly narrative. In the wake of a profane signal of alien origin, the album opens with the protagonist losing touch with reality beneath a starry night sky. What follows is a kaleidoscopic voyage through another plane of existence where all is not as it first seems, trapped in a loop of destruction that must be imparted upon others. The tale ultimately comes to a point with serenity achieved in the closing minutes, planting the seeds of hope for an opportunity to start anew.
