Kevin Haskins shares visual history of Bauhaus in new coffee table book ‘Undead’

First announced last year, Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins’ visual history of the pioneering goth-rock act — a 315-page coffee table book stuffed with recollections and flyers, ticket stubs, personal photographs and more — will be published in early 2018 by Cleopatra Records.

“Bauhaus — Undead: The Visual History and Legacy of Bauhaus” will officially be released in March — though copies may begin shipping as early as December for fans who pre-order the book.

Haskins promises readers will be taken on a visual journey from the inception of the band — which also featured Haskins’ brother David J, as well as Peter Murphy and (current Poptone bandmate) Daniel Ash — in 1978 through the group’s initial reunion in 1998 and its famed performance at the Coachella in 2005.

In addition to Haskins’ own writings, the book includes images from the drummer’s memorabilia collection: handmade flyers, backstage passes, ticket stubs, band artwork, letters, set lists, recording contracts, band sketches, fan club material, tour itineraries, handwritten lyrics, invoices, posters and more.

The book can be pre-ordered now in standard and signed editions.

Below, check out a video clip of Haskins reading from the book, as well as images included in the project.
