Forest Swords Announces North American Tour Dates, Shares New Songs: Listen

Forest Swords has announced a series of North American concerts. The British electronic music producer born Matthew Barnes will perform in Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Calgary in June. See Forest Swords’ schedule below.

Barnes released the comeback Forest Swords album Bolted last year. He’s following the LP now with two more tracks: “Torch” and “Pearl of Hail.” Find those below, too.

“‘Torch / Pearl of Hail’ were siblings written as part of the Bolted album sessions, recorded in a factory studio space in Liverpool last winter, that deserved an extra life,” Barnes remarked in a press release. “I’m trying to not have much music hanging around on hard drives gathering dust anymore, life’s too short. This pair are a bit lighter and more spring-like than most of Bolted, but still share the same DNA.”
