Peter Murphy, 'Lion'

Former Bauhuas frontman Peter Murphy this morning confirmed the full itinerary for his 33-date late spring/early summer North American tour in support of his forthcoming 10th album Lion, a record that he’s also previewing for the first time today via a 6-minute video — which you can see below — that teases a number of the album’s 11 tracks.

Like Echo & The Bunnymen’s upcoming record, Lion is produced by Killing Joke bassist Youth, and is due out July 2/3 around the world. The album will be preceded by a limited-edition metallic-silver 7-inch single featuring a  dub mix of “Hang Up,” the album opener and the record’s first single, on Record Store Day.

Murphy’s tour opens May 22 in Las Vegas and hits 32 cities for 33 shows, wrapping up June 3 and 5 in Los Angeles. See full dates below.
