Formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1979 The Leather Nun rapidly became heroes of the international alternative rock scene, pioneering Post-punk and Grunge with their early records and unrivaled powerful Live performances. Legendary BBC1 DJ John Peel favored the band as did the influential brittish music press. The close association with industrial music-pioneers Throbbing Gristle, added to the attention from young buddying bands/artist like Front 242 and Laibach to Dead Kennedys, Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, Kurt Cobain and Trent Reznor.
In Jan 2014, Leather Nun enters the recording studio for the first time in 23 years.
Leather Nun is back to once again set the agenda of alternative rock'n'roll.
