Death in June are a post-industrial music group led by English folk musician Douglas Pearce, better known as Douglas P. Arising from the ashes of classic '77 leftist punk band Crisis, the band was originally formed in Britain in 1981 as a trio. After the other members left several years later to work on other projects (Tony Wakeford to Sol Invictus, Patrick Leagas to Sixth Comm), the group became the work of Douglas P. and various collaborators, which over the years have included Current 93 and Boyd Rice.

Over the band's three decades of existence, they have made numerous shifts in style and presentation, resulting in an overall shift from initial post-punk and Industrial Records influence to a more acoustic and folk music-oriented approach. Although sometimes considered controversial (largely due to usage of provocative themes and imagery), Death in June has become very influential in certain post-industrial music circles. Douglas P.'s influence was instrumental in sparking the genre of neofolk. One of neofolk's most prominent exponents, celebrating romanticism and the apocalypse on equal terms, Death in June produced some of the most confrontational and uncompromising music, mixing symbolic menace with sexual and political references as well as paganism and the occult.
