Forest Swords "Panic" (video)

Forest Swords 'Panic' (video)
Forest 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.
