Before joining Placebo, Forrest was drummer for the ambient rock band Evaline. He announced his intention to leave Evaline in January 2007, but remained with the band throughout their 2007 United States tour.
During that tour, Evaline opened for Placebo, and Forrest came to be acquainted with them. In 2008 he took the vacant seat of Steve Hewitt.
Unlike Placebo's previous two drummers, Forrest plays right-handed, not left.
Forrest also contributes vocals and rhythm guitar for the indie/soul band É Florentino.
In February 2015 it was announced that Forrest left Placebo, reportedly in order to concentrate on his own musical career, including as the frontman and songwriter for the band Planes, which he founded in London during the time he was with Placebo.
