This article is about the rock band. For other uses of the term Sisters of Mercy, please see Sisters of Mercy (disambiguation).

The Sisters of Mercy are a rock band from Leeds, England. They are viewed as one of the most legendary representatives of the gothic genre, though they avoid this label because they find it too caricatural. In fact, they often blend gothic with heavy metal, industrial and pop. Founded in 1979, the band's line-up has changed many times but has always revolved around its frontman, the charismatic singer Andrew Eldritch.

Surprisingly, the Sisters only produced albums in the 1980s and the 1990s, but with a lot of success. Since then, they have never stopped composing new songs and performing at concerts, but without offering any new albums, to the great distress of their followers.
