The Silence Industry was formed in 2006 by Graham J and a few close friends in Vancouver Canada after the implosion of several other bands that he had been involved in. Their first release was a self titled EP in 2007, and they have continued to release a steady stream of mini-albums ever since. They have put out releases through AF-Music, Enough Records, and Ekleipsi.
The Silence Industry has no specific intention of making a particular style of music, although neither do they see the need to shy away from their influences (post-punk, gothic rock, psychedelia, and noise).
Over the years numerous collaborators have been involved in the band. The band currently consists of Graham J and B4RB13, with additional musicians filling out the band for live performance.
