The band recently dropped a new song called ‘Jazz Ruined My Life’ on March 25, and followed the track ‘Saint Loser’. Both songs appeared on the trio’s third album ‘Get In Losers, We’re Going To Eternal Damnation’, which dropped on April 1.
The album received a four-star rating from NME‘s Adrian Yap, who praised the record’s confidence. “It almost feels like the band are now ready for their proper unveiling, to be seen in brighter light and with a clearer lens. This is Forests at their summit, ready to conquer the world,” he wrote, noting tracks like ‘Godspeedbaby!’ and ‘Fool of Hell’ among the standouts.
‘Get In Losers, We’re Going To Eternal Damnation’ was also named one of NME’s 10 best Southeast Asian albums and EPs of 2022 so far alongside fellow Singaporean act Linying’s debut album ‘There Could Be Wreckage Here’.
