Following the worldwide premiere on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, Palm Reader are excited to share their gargantuan new single ‘Swarm’ taken from their highly anticipated third studio album. ‘Braille’ will be released April 6th via hotly tipped UK independent label Silent Cult Records.


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.

‘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.

If this new single is anything to go by, then Braille is a very exciting proposition indeed and should give Palm Reader the success they rightfully deserve.
