Swedish post punk/dark wave band Then Comes Silence have shared the video for their new single "The Dead Cry For No One".
The band are currently working on their debut album, which is scheduled for release later in the year via Nuclear Blast.
About the track, singer/songwriter Alex Svenson said: "My fascination for darkness is a still point of my turning world and influences every tune and word I write. The song 'The Dead Cry For No One' is my way of describing our insignificance and transience versus the self-righteous egos we all carry with us.
We're gravely missing the whole entirety of our existence. It shouldn't be about you and your ego. We are all a part of something big together. When you die someone or something else is given life. Don't repress death. Well, it's easier said than done. I have an ego too shaped by the world I grew up in and live in. Being mindful of it is the first step.
I lost someone very dear to me when I was writing the album. The song helps me through the sorrowful times, but it's not a sentimental tune, instead it's got a pulse. A fist in the air for the dead."

UK synthpop band OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) have announce the release of their 13th studio album titled 'Punishment of Luxury'.
The follow-up to 2013’s English Electric, "sees the band combine traces of their previous work while experimenting with new technology," and will be out on September 1st via White Noise Records..
The 12 track album was written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys – and is the sound of a band in their prime. ‘On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns’, explains Andy. ‘The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!’
The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini and contains everything from the Kraftwerkian ‘Isotype’ and ‘Robot Man’ to the blue eyed soul ballads of ‘One More Time’ and ‘The View From Here’ as well as more traditional OMD songs like ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang’ and the synth heavy title track.
The band have also shared the video for their new single “La Mitrailleuse.”
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their sixth studio album 'For Crying Out Loud', released last week (May 5). Grab your copy here.
The video was shot in one take and broadcast live on 9th May in partnership with LADbible.
"It was such an incredible experience to make a music video feel like a live event. What ever went down, that was it. The adrenaline and excitement of recording it in one shot, to a live audience was unreal. I think it could be the first of many for us." -Sergio
London based dance-pop/post punk/new wave band Cymbals have announced they will release their new album titled 'Light In Your Mind' on August 25 on Tough Love Records.
The record is the first new material from CYMBALS in two years, and their first album since January 2014. If the wait seems long for the listener, for those involved in its creation the time in between pulls in a lifetime of unexpected experiences. That Light In Your Mind even exists is a testament to not giving in. That it sounds the way it does is both remarkable and, somehow, inevitable.
The band have also shared the first single "Decay,", which according to Jack Cleverly "is about getting comfortable with decay, accepting decay. Around the time we were writing that song I went to the Ruin Lust exhibition, and saw the beauty of things breaking down. I was thinking about that in terms of my own life, as a lot of things that I thought my life was based on seemed to be crumbling, but at the same time there was a whole load of beauty, and openings up of myself, of things that I never thought were there. I felt that I could breathe in a way, but at the same time it was kind of full of destruction and chaos, or at least I was creating that around me."
