The Restitution is proud to premiere the first single, “Swarm,” from the band’s upcoming album, Into the Dark. The moniker is the stage name for Michael Wright, who set out to combine the musical influences of Deftones, Radiohead and 2016 cultural zeitgeist cornerstone Stranger ThingsInto the Dark is the follow up to The Restitution’s debut release, Waves.

We spoke with Wright about the track itself:

Into the Dark is an exploration of the brokenness of human connection, both personal and general, and its effects on us. ‘Swarm’ is a song about broken relationships and living with the isolation that can come from that. I really wanted to capture how that feels, which — to me– is as if you’re almost being eaten alive from the inside.”

You can grab the album from The Restitution’s Bandcamp, as well as stream tracks, right now.
