Formed in 1981 in Melbourne, Australia by vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, Dead Can Dance is an Australian-British musical project. The duo came to prominence in the early 1990s with their genre-defying music, which takes influence from classical and world music, as well as new wave post-punk and goth. Their breakthrough album is 1993's Into the Labyrinth, which was their first to chart on the Billboard 200. The group disbanded in 1998, but embarked upon a world tour together in 2005 and reformed officially in 2011, coming back with a new album, Anastasis, in 2012, along with a world tour. Their most recent album, Dionysis, was released in 2019.
