Then Comes Silence hail from Stockholm, Sweden and were founded by Alex Svenson, the only original member from the band's beginnings in 2012. The inspiration came from touring frequently with A Place To Bury Strangers and an attraction to horror and the occult. A couple of years later the German post-punk community started to embrace the band and Then Comes Silence found a new home away from home.
After releasing three albums in quick succession, Then Comes Silence were signed to Nuclear Blast in 2016 for the release of 'Blood'. The partnership opened a lot of opportunities. The band started to reach out to a wider audience, opening for acts like The Fields of the Nephilim, The Chameleons, A Place To Bury Strangers and participating in festivals like M'era Luna, Wave Gotik Treffen, Amphi Festival, Castle Party and W-Festival among others. Later, following up with dual record deals, Then Comes Silence signed for another album deal with Metropolis Records.
Drummer Jonas Fransson joined in 2015 and guitarist Hugo Zombie (ex-Los Carniceros del Norte) became a member in 2018.
Then Comes Silence are highly reputed in the front line of the new generation of goth, post-punk and darkwave, being well-known for frequently releasing high quality new material and as a hard-working touring band which is one of the genre's leading live acts.
