Merseyside, UK’s dark, mysterious and atmospheric producer Matthew Barnes, AKA Forest Swords, has just announced the details of his new album. Engravings, the follow-up to 2010’s Dagger Paths, will be released Aug. 26 via Tri Angle Records. Per a press release, the album was mixed entirely outdoors on Barnes’ laptop, and was inspired by his natural surroundings.
