Killing Miranda were a British based musical group initially playing gothic rock, later introducing more industrial and metal influence into their sound.



The band's initial line-up consisted of Richard Pyne (aka 'Filthy Rikky') on vocals and programming, Dave Irvine (aka 'Irish Dave') and Dave Turner (aka 'Alien Dave') on guitar, Chris Wareham on bass and Belle (now playing with The cureheads) on drums, programming and production. The band was formed in London in 1998. This line-up recorded and released their debut album 'Blessed Deviant' on Nightbreed in 1999. Chris Wareham left the line-up in 2000, with Irish Dave taking on bass duties.

The second Killing Miranda album, Transgression By Numbers, arrived in 2001. The band left the Nightbreed label after the release of this album, signing to Diesel Motor Records, who released their third album Consummate in October 2004. This would be the band's final release.

Killing Miranda have performed in Britain, Mexico, Ireland, the Azores, Germany, and Austria including at the Eurorock and Wave-Gotik-Treffen festivals, and have supported numerous acts including Mortiis, Front 242, The Mission UK, Queen Adreena, Paradise Lost and The Damned.

As of 27 July, 2007, Killing Miranda is on 'permanent hiatus'. Former frontman Richard Pyne has since concentrated on his industrial project UberByte, whilst Belle has played live for Rachel Stamp, Nosferatu, David Ryder-Prangley and the Witches, New Skin and both live and on recordings with Lahannya. In 2008 Alien Dave and Irish Dave went on to join Sterile Prophet ([]) and have performed several shows to sell out crowds. Their debut album will be released later this year and calls upon influences such as Clutch, Faith no more and Tool.
