Swedish electropop-metal quartet Solence has released their latest single and music video, “Blood Sweat Tears“ (via Hopeless Records). Speaking on today’s release, the band shares:
“We asked ourselves, what music would we as 18-year-olds have been the most proud of creating? “Blood Sweat Tears” is that very song. It’s an epic journey about wanting something so much that you’ll give anything to reach that goal. Big vocal moments, virtuoso musicianship, and soaring guitar solos mark a very solid attempt from Solence to make you drop your jaw three floors.
The initial demo was just an acoustic guitar and a classic song, then we naturally just started to add and add more and more parts to it. In the end, it became this 8-minute-long journey of us having lots of fun and trying to challenge us to do something we’ve never really dared to do before.“
The band has recently released music videos for “Rain Down“ and “Demons”, which together have amassed over 298,000 views on YouTube and nearly 1.9 million streams on Spotify alone. Watch the music video for “Blood Sweat Tears“ below, stream the track here.
After forming in 2011 in their hometown Norrköping, Sweden, it didn’t take long for SOLENCE to set their sights on global domination. The band, comprised of Markus Videsäter, David Vikingsson, David Strääf, and Johan Swärd, has quickly amassed 200 million streams across all platforms and solidified their spot in the new generation of rock music. David and Markus are also the music masterminds behind some of the biggest charting singles pop of today (Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo). With several gold and platinum records under their belt, the band is full steam ahead on carving out their space in rock history. The band signed with Hopeless Records in July 2022, and quickly released two new singles, elevating their career to new heights. “Demons“ and “Rain Down“ left fans demanding more new music, and the band set out to deliver just that. With an irrefutable industry buzz surrounding them and a full-length album on the way, it’s time to get ready and enjoy the SOLENCE.
