Reptile House

Following a successful tour across the UK with Lizzie and the Banshees, Reptile House bring their tribute to the alternative rockers Sisters of Mercy to Luton.

Whether you're a fan of the early EPs classics like Alice and Floorshow or you love the big production hits like Dominion and Lucretia, we have the three albums and EPs covered. Reptile House have been a working band for nearly 9 years, starting life as a Dark Side of the 80s cover band before developing into an original band as Souls of Misfortune. After a number of requests for the Souls to play Sisters sets, Reptile House was formed towards the end of 2022. During 2023 the band played alongside the fabulous Lizzie and the Banshees and Liqueur at venues across the UK.

The band have won over crowds at London's Garage, Bristol's Dareshack, Glasgow's Ivory Blacks, Newcastle's Cluny as well as festival performances in Whitby (Goth Weekend) and the South West.

Expect convincing renditions of your favourite Sisters tracks with visual representations to take you back to the glory days of the 1980s and early 1990s, along with a visual interpretation capturing the look and feel of Wake, The Royal Albert Hall concert from the summer of 1985.

Get your goth on and get dressed in your black finery for a night of pure dark side on the 80s!
