Libitina is a British Gothic band formed in 1994 by University of Sheffield students. The band has released five albums on its own Libation Records label.

From 1996-2002, Libitina were Pete (main vocals, programming, guitar), Darren (guitar), and Jamie (bass guitar, vocals, programming). Phill joined on keyboards in 2002 and took over lead vocals after Pete left the band at the end of that year. Band members from 2003 to 2006 were Darren (guitar, programming), Jamie (bass guitar, programming, vocals), and Phill (vocals, programming, guitar, bass guitar).
