Published Apr 26, 2017Forest Swords is set to return with his Compassion album next month, and the producer born Matthew Barnes has already given us a few teasers. Today, though, he's offloaded the new track "Panic" via a slicked-out video.
The video was directed by Barnes himself and AV collaborator Sam Wiehl, with the clip being produced by Barnes's new experimental creative studio Dense Truth.
In a statement, Barnes said, "Most of the tracks on Compassion were started in quite a heavy place but all managed to move towards the light the longer I worked on them. 'Panic' is the point where tension and stress boils over into a sort of euphoria."
You can see how that plays out in the visual realm below.
Forest Swords has also revealed a series of tour dates behind the new album in the U.S. and Europe. You can see all the stops here.
Compassion will arrive on May 5 through Ninja Tune.
