Metropolis Records
Release: 1 July 2022

As of tortured artists release introspective, doom-laden, pandemic-obsessed new material, Swedish gothic post-punk band Then Comes Silence is heroically swimming against the tide, eyes set firmly towards the light at the end of the tunnel. This album HUNGER is Then Comes Silence throwing a rock and roll lifeline, challenging the prevailing mood, bringing energy & passion into the new changed world

Then Comes Silence are the Swedish captains of postpunk. The quartet from Stockholm is a fresh breeze of gothic renaissance, kicking darkness around with hammering rhythms and melodies that make hearts melt and blood freeze. The fascination for doom and darkness pervade and influence every tune and word.

The music of Then Comes Silence takes the listener on a journey from swinging postpunk to the shadows of goth-gaze and into scraps of coal hearted psych. 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 the band’s very first show, as the opening act for A Place to Bury Strangers in 2012.

The sonic collaboration of two guitars creates an imaginative dimensional sonic picture, propelled either side of the drum and bass lead, like a dark and winged creature. Sinister and threatening vocals set up a presence that is both exciting and foreboding. Adrenaline guaranteed! Their music attracts wide attention and is praised for its apocalyptic sound and dystopian message.

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.
