Then Comes Silence
The group is originally based in Stockholm, Sweden and was formed in 2012. At first, the sound was wild and noisy with a distinct influence of deep psych-rock and dark shoegaze.
With the third album 'Nyctophilian' (2015), Then Comes Silence gained a reputation for their live performances. It began to spread among Gothic, Darkwave and post punk communities all over the world.
The group signed for Nuclear Blast in 2016 and recorded 'Blood' which came out in 2017. During 2017 and 2019 the band toured frequently around Europe, opening for bands like Fields of the Nephilim and The Chameleons, and have performed at M'era Luna, Wave Gotik Treffen, W-Fest, Roskilde Festival and A Murder Of Crows Festival.
Then Comes Silence have recently signed a dual deal with Metropolis Records for North America and Nexilis/Schubert Music for the rest of the world.
In August 2022 the band did their first US tour opening up for The Bellwether Syndicate playing in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Boise, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Chicago and New York City among others.
The new album 'Hunger' was launched on July 1, 2022.
