Palm Reader are excited to share an epic new track ‘internal Winter’ taken from their highly anticipated third studio album, ‘Braille’ which will be released April 6th via hotly tipped UK independent label Silent Cult Records.
‘Braille’ was recorded and produced by Lewis Johns (Bastions, Rolo Tomassi, Gnarwolves, Muncie Girls,) at The Ranch, Southampton. ‘Braille’is a highly refined, and marked evolution of Palm Reader’s sonic identity, and sees the band eclipse their previous works. Palm Reader have doctorates in mathematical time signatures, gargantuan riffs and rail-rattling brutality, but their third offering transcends these preconceptions with fathoms of oceanic atmosphere, Intellect, and melodies awash with all the beauty and power of a tsunami.
Formed from the same Surrey scene that brought the world Employed To Serve, Woking’s Palm Reader have spent the last seven years honing their craft everywhere from the dingiest toilet venues in Britain to the biggest festival stages in Europe, continuingly improving both as a live band and as songwriters as they have crept stealth-like to the upper echelons of the United Kingdom’s most respected underground acts.
Since their birth in 2011 the band quickly got to work melding their various influences into their earliest compositions, their debut 4 track EP released later that year took the raw punk of Gallows, the technical, complex time signatures of The Dillinger Escape Plan and the seething atmospheric approach of Cult Of Luna. It impressed enough of their peers and contemporaries that Palm Reader were soon embarking on shows up and down the country with the likes of Brotherhood Of The Lake, Bastions, Let’s Talk Daggers, The Catharsis and many other of the hugely impressive raft of new bands populating the UK underground at that moment.
