Genre-bending instrumental band Polyphia recently returned with a new song, Neurotica (opens in new tab), which is featured on their up-coming album Remember That You Will Die.
The band also announced that session drummer Luke Holland (Hollywood Undead, Falling In Reverse, Jason Richardson) , had been invited to collaborate on the new material.
Here, Luke Holland plays through Neurotica, explaining in the video’s description, “These are the parts I wrote and then recorded. What you hear on the album might have changed due to what [Polyphia drummer] Clay Aeschliman felt was right for the song, and he did a great job as always. A massive thank you to Polyphia (Tim, Clay squared and Scott) for having me be a part of this album.”
Armed with a trio of cymbal stacks (including his signature Meinl Luke Holland Bullet and Baby Stacks), an exotic DW kit and a poppin’ DW snare, Holland plays his way through the song's rage beat-inspired main groove with accents abound.
We’ve included the Polyphia album version here for comparison too. Polyphia - Remember That You Will Die’s release date is still TBC, but the album is available to pre-order here (opens in new tab).
