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”.

    So glad that Pontus is the clean vocalist again. Hearing him with the new screamer is definitely going to be epic as fuck for the next album.

    Fanboyism. Stoffe sounds very similar to Jimmie in a lot of ways. And he's snarlier, which is a rarity in the type of music that DbA plays. So if anything, Stoffe is the LESS generic one of the two. [2]

    Мне они нравились, когда там был Джимми Стримелл.

    Can't wait for a new album to be honest. I still think their second album was thier best (in terms of song structure, lyrics and so on). I just hope they get a decent their latest album sounded really generic scream wise.

    The cleans are literally the only thing that is better about the debut album...

    Just found out the original clean vocalist is going to do vocals again. Can't fucking wait. Prefer the cleans on the first album anyways.

    I love this band but nothing beats the first album. It was way more unique and less poppy. Love all their stuff though.

    Dreamshade just released their new single and it is amazing! Must-listen for every fan of Modern Melodic Metal.

    Был сегодня на их концерте в клубе RE:PUBLIC в Минске, Беларусь. Понравилось, мошились немного. Состав, конечно, изменился. На вокале Понтус, Кристофер Андерсон на гроулинге. Чуваки какие-то прикольные у них на разогреве были... Новые песни Понтус пел с листка)) Не выучил еще наверное. Рубашки стоили по 200 000, диски по 150 000 бел. руб. С удовольствием схожу еще раз.

    Honestly, with no offence intended at Jimmie -- I like Stoffe a lot more. I wish he had been there since the beginning.

    @Borannditt: Why? Stoffe is a perfectly good screamer.
