An English band founded in 1977, fronted by singer Richard Butler and his brother Tim Butler on bass guitar, they are one of the many acts spawned from the British Post Punk / New Wave scene.

Their music went through several phases, from an initially austere Art Rock sound, later leaning more towards New Wave and Hard Rock.


They scored several hits in their early career, but were launched to international attention in 1986 when the film director John Hughes used their song "Pretty in Pink" for his movie of the same name.

The Psychedelic Furs went on hiatus in 1991, and the Butler brothers formed a new band called Love Spit Love. The Psychedelic Furs later regrouped in 2001 and continue to perform around the world.
