Pupil Slicer has parted ways with bassist Luke Fabian after five years. Pupil Slicer notes that their split with Fabian was mutual, as they felt "working together professionally is something we can no longer continue with." Fabian's final effort with the band was their very well-received 2023 record Blossom, and no replacement has yet been announced.
Pupil Slicer further notes that they will no longer be working with live guitarist Alex Brown in 2024. The band's full statement can be found below.
"We are sad to announce that we are parting ways with our long term bass player Luke Fabian after five years," wrote Pupil Slicer.
"Together we have achieved things beyond our wildest dreams, from touring around Europe and the UK to playing amazing festivals and releasing music together that we are truly proud of.
"We have mutually agreed that working together professionally is something we can no longer continue with. However we would like to thank Luke for his unparalleled skills and contribution on the bass and vocals. It also wouldn’t feel right to not highlight his massive contributions and work behind the scenes in Pupil Slicer, of which we are eternally grateful.
"We would also like to thank our live guitarist Alex Brown for his phenomenal work and dedication over 2023 as he will no longer be performing with us as we move into 2024.
"Our upcoming headline show as part of reality unfolds is still going ahead as planned and we look forward to seeing you all next year!"
