Haley Fohr's sixth album will be released this October

Circuit Des Yeux, AKA Haley Fohr, has signed to Matador for the release of her sixth album, -io.

Due out in October, the album sees Fohr working alongside a 24-piece string, brass and wind ensemble. It's said to have been written "in the wake of personal loss," and was recorded in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can watch a video for lead track 'Dogma', co-directed by Fohr herself, above.

Speaking about the track, Fohr says: "Where there is faith there is violence. The story of civilisation is complicated and layered with dogmas. At each individual's incentive lies both a beacon and an instinct. The fool follows the outer while the idiot chases her interior. Society is a necessary subversion of the self. It is through time that our quiet alarms grow with great intensity until emancipation through implosion or explosion become imminent."

Matador will release -io on October 22, 2021.
