1980’s - 2011 - History

Die Laughing are mainly remembered for their input to the 90s Goth scene but their roots go much further back into the 1980s. This line up played many gigs and released three demos, including a track called Wake which featured on a very rare compilation album called Underground Resistance. The band split in 1988 after the release of their final 4 track demo Of Hearts & Tears, when Alison the vocalist left. Auditions were held but a new vocalist was never found and the line up members simply moved on.

Four years later in 1992 the line up everyone knows as Die Laughing was born when John Berry (guitars) teamed up with Rachel Speight (vocals) and formed the song writing nucleus of the band.

Within a few months a newly-acquired bass player in the form of Dave Shiner, keyboard player Ruth Tyson and drummer Tom completed the line up.
