Palm Reader have released a video for their brand new track Swarm.

It’s been lifted from the UK outfit’s new album Braille, which is scheduled to arrive on April 6 via Silent Cult Records.

Speaking with Metal Hammer last year about the how the record compared with the band’s last two albums, guitarist Andy Gillan said: “It’s definitely the logical progression and has a lot more groove.

“I’m not going to say it’s a massive departure from what we’ve done before – that’s not entirely true. We all said that we didn’t want to release the same album twice.

“If you’ve listened to Bad Weather, Beside The Ones We Love and this one, you can definitely see an unsurprising progression which has manifested itself on this record.”

Palm Reader will hit the road over the coming months with Rolo Tomassi and Cryptodira. Find a full list of tour dates below, along with the Braille cover art and tracklist.

Braille is now available for pre-order.
