The Sisters of Mercy, a British dark rock icon, will perform concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, and Wellington in October and November. The Sisters of Mercy, which just celebrated their 40th anniversary, are one of the most potential, influential bands to come out of the famous post-punk era, leaving their imprint with their commanding presence and Andrew Eldritch’s distinctively melancholy voice. Their music gained cult status and has since been regarded as a key influence by bands like Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, and My Chemical Romance.
They are a potential reference point for the dark rock sound and the dark culture in general. The Sisters of Mercy have amassed a legion of devoted fans who flock to see classics like “Lucretia My Reflection,” “Temple Of Love,” and “This Corrosion,” a testament to their incredible live performances. Over the four decades, they have released three studio albums that are utterly brilliant and highly influential, scaling the charts around the world.
The Sisters of Mercy Biography
English rock group, The Sisters of Mercy, was established in Leeds in 1980. The band gained early underground recognition there, experienced a commercial breakthrough in the middle of the 1980s, and maintained that success until the early 1990s before stopping the release of new recordings as a show of displeasure towards their record label WEA. The group exclusively does live shows at the moment. First and Last and Always (1985) and Vision Thing are the group’s three original studio albums (1990). The line-up for each album was varied; the only constants were the singer-songwriter Andrew Eldritch and the percussion machine Doktor Avalanche. The Sisterhood was a side project tied to Eldritch’s conflict with former members with whom Eldritch and Avalanche worked.
Early in the 1990s, the Sisters of Mercy stopped recording because they went on strike against East-West Records, which they blamed for being inefficient and withholding royalties while pressuring the group to release two more studio albums. Instead, the potential label released the album Go Figure in 1997 under SSV. The Sisters of Mercy were finally freed from their contract with East-West, but despite performing several new songs throughout their live sets, they have never been signed to another label or released any new music.
