The band is revered for their unique fusion of storytelling lyrics and modern metal and have been plotting a new chapter set against a backdrop of bleak cinematic soundscapes.
"Panopticon paints a dystopian view of the future, one where technological advances have pacified the human spirit and made us apathetic in the face of an increasingly malevolent, post-singularity AI that was developed under the premise of security... ultimately becoming a tyrannical overlord,” explains vocalist Garrett Russell.
“To communicate the story of humanity and it’s traditions being outmoded,” Russell continues. “We challenged ourselves to write a song with no guitar. Using only bass, electronic elements, and percussion - we developed this track over the course of the summer. We don’t really care if you love it or hate it... we just hope you can set aside a few minutes to hear it. That is meaningful enough for us.”
The new song follows the release of a collaborative double single ‘Trilogy/Stockholm’. Fit For A King’s Ryan Kirby and Russell traded places, covering each other’s bands songs. It’s available to listen to here: https://solidstate.ffm.to/
