Then Comes Silence are a Swedish band, formed in early 2012 in Stockholm by Alex Svenson (ex Sad Day For Puppets). The band signed with the small indie label Novoton the same year and released the first album in November 2012.
Then Comes Silence are claimed to be the Swedish captains of the post-punk revival and belong to to the rock based wing in the scene.
The fascination for doom and darkness pervade and influence every tune and word. The sharp soundscape is intense, massive and pounding. The lyrics flirt with death and sorrow. It’s goth, psychedelica, rock and post-punk in a symbiosis.
Since Then Comes Silence’s very first show, as the opening act for A Place to Bury Strangers in 2012, the band has toured frequently around Europe and released four full-length albums. The first two albums are regarded as more experimental. With the third album “NYCTOPHILIAN” the band started to reach out widely seeking a more classic sound, followed by the fourth album “BLOOD”.
Their music attracts wide attention and is praised for its apocalyptic sound and dystopian message. The band signed with Nuclear Blast in 2016 and released “BLOOD” on October 20th 2017.
In 2018 the band opened for Fields Of The Nephilim and Chameleons Vox in Germany and are more frequently a part of the line-up on the festivals in Europe. The same year, Seth Kapadia and Jens Karnstedt left the band and the former session musicians and touring substitutes Mattias Ruejas Jonson (ex A PROJECTION) and Spanish born Hugo Zombie (ex Los Carniceros Del Norte) became the new members in the band.
