In late June, fans got an early taste of the album with the release of the track âViking Death March.â The track was released as a thank you to fans for being patient while the band finished up work on Dead Silence. Radio stations hungry for new music from the band picked up the track and have propelled it into the Top Ten of airplay at Canadian Rock radio.

In Germany, Dead Silence is trending #3 on the Amazon album sales chart on advance sales alone.
