About The Sisters of Mercy

The Sisters of Mercy return to Rockhal for a not to be missed show on 26th September 2017.

One of England's leading Goth bands of the 1980s, the Sisters of Mercy play a hybrid of Metal and Psychedelia, often incorporating dance beats; the one constant in the band's career has been deep-voiced singer Andrew Eldritch and the drum machine called Doktor Avalanche.
Eldritch originally formed the band in 1980 with guitarist Gary Marx and built a reputation through several singles and EPs. The Sisters of Mercy recorded their first full-length album, First and Last and Always, in 1985. Two years later, internal dissent split them apart. Some legal dispute ensued over the rights to the name Sisters of Mercy; Adams and Hussey attempted to use the name Sisterhood, but Eldritch released an EP under the name to prevent its usage, and the two finally settled on the Mission.
Eldritch continued with the Sisters, adding new band members and rebounded with his two biggest-selling American LPs, Floodland and Vision Thing. The group ceased recording activity in 1993, when they went on strike against their record company. Eldritch kept the band active as a performing entity through the first decade of the 2000s and beyond.
