Goth-inclined Silent was founded in Mexicali, Baja California in 2015 by singer/percussionist Jung Sing (Maniqui Lazer, All Leather) and guitarist Alejandro Lara. Other members based in Baja and San Diego have included bassist Rodo Ibarra (Maniqui Lazer, Letters From Readers), drummer Andrea Varela, and drummer Rocio Chavez. The band has toured the USA and Mexico, alongside San Diego labelmates like Dead Cross, Retox, the Locust, and Author & Punisher.

Their album A Century of Abuse was released in October 2016, recorded in Mexicali B.C by Gerardo Montoya, produced by Ruben Tomayo (Traum, Static Discos, Rocket Racer), and mixed and mastered at Facsimile Sound. Released digitally by the Locust's label Three One G, with a separate limited edition of 500 records on white vinyl, guest performers include Andrea Ruelas on cello.

"The artwork of the record is a picture that our bass player, Rodo Ibarra, took in Mexicali of a demolished landmark," Jung Sing told the Reader. "I think the artwork fits perfectly with the title of the record."

In early 2018, their track "Self," from A Century of Abuse, was rereleased as a hip-hop remix by Planet B, with the original instrumentation stripped, instead melding vocalist Jung Sing’s dark vibrato tones with Luke Henshaw’s (Sonido de la Frontera) robotic assaults and Justin Pearson’s (The Locust, Dead Cross, Retox) unhinged backup screams.

They released their first song in over a year in early 2019 with a cover of “Prayers for Rain” by the Cure, available free online via Three One G Records.

Their sophomore LP Modern Hate dropped digitally and on vinyl in April 2021 via local label Three One Gee, their first full-length in five years. The album was recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered in Mexicali, Baja California at Pulsar Studios and La Casa Estudios by Cesar Cossio, with vinyl mastering by Ruben Tamayo.

According to Three One G, "The record was meant to be released in 2018, but was put on hold while they went on short hiatus to address some of their differences." The album delays furthered by the pandemic included breaking in new drummer Rocio Chavez. "This felt like a new start that called for relearning, reshaping, and retouching some of the tracks."

A video debuted in late June 2021 for the Modern Hate track "Empty Spaces."
