Wednesday, December 14, 2022 - Swedish electropop-metal quartet Solence has dropped their latest music video "nuBlood" featuring Fame On Fire vocalist Bryan Kuznitz. Not only that, but fans can also look forward to the band's forthcoming album '_hope is a cult_' set for release on Friday, February 17 (via Hopeless Records). Speaking on today's news, the band shares:
“'NuBlood' is a song about all the old dudes starting wars and oppressing people just to be able to cling on to their puny power! Just step aside. Your time is up. Out with the old, in with the new.
'NuBlood' is also a straight-up banger so hold on 'cuz this chorus is like sticking your head out the window whilst driving 100mph on the freeway!!
“We’re also so extremely excited to finally be able to share 'hope_is_a_cult' with all the Solence family…and the not yet inaugurated ones!! We’ve worked so hard and so long on this and we truly feel like this is such an important step for us in our journey to write the most “Solence” of songs that we can write. This album goes up, down, sideways, then we solo for a bit, and then it's head-banging and big choruses!
We’re super proud of this and hope you’re as excited as we are for 'hope_is_a_cult'!!!”
Prior to today, Solence released "Rain Down", "Demons", and most recently, "Blood Sweat Tears" which altogether have amassed 373,000 views on YouTube and over 2 million streams on Spotify.

No matter where we come from, music draws us together and bonds us. For as much as SOLENCE sonically conjoin elements of metal, electronic, alternative, and pop, the Swedish group also appeal to an expansive swath of personalities with a universal message. Equally suitable for the mosh pit or Coachella, the band--Markus Videsäter [vocals], David “Viking” Vikingsson [drums], David Strääf [guitar], and Johan Swärd [keys]—rally around a familial energy meant to be shared as loudly as possible. After quietly generating north of 200 million streams and counting, they welcome everyone closer on their third full-length offering and Hopeless Records debut, _hope is a cult_, and more to come.
“We want to build up this family around positivity, hope, and the belief you can change things,” notes Markus. “We want you to forget everything that bothers you when you listen to this album. If we’re doing our job, audiences feel like they’re a part of it. When you go to a SOLENCE show, you have a good time, so hope is a cult for us.”
