Swedish Post-Punk Stalwarts Then Comes Silence Pay Tribute to Their Fellowship With The Video for “Ride or Die”

Take my soul, my blood, my words Let it be, ride or die

Stockholm post-punk stalwards Then Comes Silence are back with their brand new single Ride or Die, accompanied by a video directed bu aux animaux’s by Gözde Duzer. The track, which stands as a bold declaration of solidarity, friendship, and community, heralds the arrival of their seventh studio album, Trickery, soon to be released by Metropolis Records.

The video, set against the backdrop of a purple-hued parking garage, showcases the band in a playful yet mysterious light, donning masks reminiscent of something akin to Love and Rockets’ The Bubblemen. This setting provides a canvas for the band’s vibrant and graffiti-inspired lyrical manifesto, encapsulating the song’s spirit of fellowship and resilience.

Musically, “Ride or Die” strikes a balance between brightness and an icy post-punk clarity, maturing into a somber yet steadfast anthem. It celebrates the unbreakable bonds of friendship, echoing the sentiment that, come what may, we persevere together—Ride or Die. This song encapsulates the essence of enduring together against all the odds, a theme deeply woven into the fabric of the upcoming album Trickery.

Founded in Stockholm in 2012 by Alex Svenson and inspired by a blend of horror, the occult, touring with acts like A Place To Bury Strangers, Then Comes Silence has evolved into a formidable force within the goth and post-punk scene. Joined by Jonas Fransson on drums and Hugo Zombie on guitar, the band continues to forge connections through their music, celebrating the sense of belonging and unity within the dark music community.

Recorded at Stockholm’s Kapsylen Studio by Jörgen Wall and mixed by Tom van Heesch, Trickery is a testament to the band’s roots in punk and alternative rock, enhanced with electronic elements that bring a fresh dynamic to their sound. Following their 2022 album Hunger, Then Comes Silence is set to captivate audiences once again with their dark, compelling melodies and evocative themes.

With a history of touring alongside renowned acts and performing at major festivals, Then Comes Silence is poised to take ‘Ride or Die’ and the rest of their new material on the road, embarking on an extensive North American tour with Vision Video from late April through May.

“Ride or Die” is available now on all major platforms, including Apple Music, Spotify, and Bandcamp, with the full album ‘Trickery’ set for release on April 5 in vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
