The Divine Comedy Biography

The Divine Comedy are a chamber pop band from Northern Ireland formed in 1989 and fronted by Neil Hannon.

To date, ten studio albums have been released under the Divine Comedy name. The group achieved their greatest commercial success in the years 1996-99, during which they had nine singles that made the UK Top 40, including the top ten hit "National Express". The tenth Divine Comedy album, Bang Goes the Knighthood, was released on 31 May 2010.
