Gothenburg, Sweden (2007 – present)

Dead By April is a band from Gothenburg, Sweden.

The band released a demo in 2007 and another in 2008, and they both leaked out to several peer-to-peer-sites. During this time they also played in local venues around Gothenburg. The demo also spawned one radio single, Falling Behind. In 2008, the band received two awards, both for Best Newcomer, on “Swedish Pop Awards” and “Bandit Rock Awards”

Their first single “Losing You” was released 6 March, 2009 at their MySpace page. The song gained attention to the band by being background music to Expedition Robinson 2009. On the 13 May 2009, the band released their debut album Dead by April, which contains 13 songs, eleven of which are remastered demo songs, with the other two being new ones. On July 21 2009, when the band was on a UK tour with Skindred, Dead by April announced that the track “Angels of Clarity” would be their next UK only single. The band has also announced a second Swedish single, “What Can I Say”.

    Металкоры сами по себе унылы - соплекоры какие-то. Эта группа не исключение. Еще и очень плоха, да.

    Hate 'As A Butterfly'. The way they raise/lower the pitch on the synths in the chorus bug the hell out of me.

    The Papa Roach of post-hardcore. Their lyrics are often embarrassing, but there's just something that attracts me to the music...... As A Butterfly is a good song though.

    De nagyon jó a zenéjük! Hibátlan discográfiájuk van!

    Ide írok már valamit magyarul. Ha az orosznak szabad, akkor más nemzetnek miért ne? Remélem, egy honfitársam, csak rá lel az üzenetemre! :D

    Clean vocals are terrible... IMO.

    Если бы я хорошо знал английский, я бы не мог это слушать. Ну а в общем ранние работы неплохие. Для любителей чего-то не очень тяжелого, красивого и энергичного.

    They've become such a crap that I've never thought they would ever become. Losing You is one of the best pieces of music I've ever listened to. Rest in peace Dead by April, u're dead finally :)

    The lyrics are pretty bad. But not the worst by far. Try listening to some Brokencyde or Blood on the Dancefloor. :P
