The arrival of the new studio album "Machine" has been announced for March 13th 2020, with the lead single "We Lose The Night" to be available on 10 January 2020 for digital download/streaming and more singles to follow.
Soon after the album release, the band surrounding vocalist/bassist Alex Svenson is also scheduled to embark on an extensive tour, including a number of festival shows, among them the M´era Luna in August 2020.
At the same time, THEN COMES SILENCE are ready to introduce their new line-up. Along with Svenson and drummer Jonas Fransson, guitarists Mattias Ruejas Jonson and Hugo Zombie complete the band. Jonson used to play with A Projection, Zombie toured as a guest/temporary musician of Then Comes Silence with Fields Of The Nephilim, and was a member of Spanish group Los Carniceros del Norte.
Svenson on the recording deal with SPV/Oblivion: "As a band, you need partners who firmly believe in you. After Oblivion A&R manager Gero Herrde had come to see our show at the New Waves Day in May 2019, we knew that we’d be in good hands with him and his label." Herrde is also extremely happy with his latest signing: "We’ve been following the positive development of Then Comes Silence with great interest for years and are delighted that they will release their new album Machine on SPV/Oblivion next March."

DIE KRUPPS - "Vision 2020 Vision" is out now
"Vision 2020 Vision", the new album of electro/industrial metal pioneers DIE KRUPPS, is out now via Steamhammer/Oblivion/SPV!
A video for the title track is available here: https://youtu.be/7zxUZ2c47Dw
Tourdates & Tickets: https://www.diekrupps.com/tour
DIE KRUPPS have so far operated between these different poles – EBM/industrial and grooving metal – although their focus may have shifted. While “The Machinists Of Joy” (2013) emphasised the electronic element and their most recent album “Metal Machine Music” (2015) featured brutal metal sounds, "Vision 2020 Vision" is a concentrate of the band’s ground-breaking period between 1992 and 1997, the ultimate, perfect amalgamation of two musical worlds which DIE KRUPPS brought together back then.
"Vision 2020 Vision" is a concept album: music, artwork and lyrics are inextricably linked, they fuel and cross-fertilise each other. The world of Engler and Dörper is monochromatic and grim, but the imminent world they see through their lens, ought to, and indeed must, frighten you. In all this, DIE KRUPPS’s themes are as topical and relevant as ever: “Extinction Time” and “Vision 2020 Vision” describe our world on the edge of the abyss. Chaos and violence rule the streets, governments are powerless. The great flood will come, wash everything away and leave nothing but darkness. “Alllies” and “Fuck You” are directed overseas, where egotism, borders and ruthlessness are dictated from the very top while Europe looks on passively, turning into a compliant minion. “Human” is a reckoning with the whole human race which has been regressing for several decades. Civilisations increasingly turn into hordes of wild, murderous barbarians.
