Peste Noire is a black metal band from La Chaise Dieu, France, formed by La sale Famine de Valfunde in 2000 with the help of Neige (Alcest) on drums.

In 2011, Famine created his own label and studio, La mesnie Herlequin, in order to have complete control over the production, recording and distribution of Peste Noire's music.The band is sometimes referred to as P.N. or K.P.N (« Kommando Peste Noire »)
