Six Bauhaus albums to be reissued on colored vinyl for band’s 40th anniversary

The Beggars Arkive imprint will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Bauhaus this fall with limited-edition, colored-vinyl reissues of the pioneering goth-rock band’s first four studio albums, as well as its 1982 live set Press Eject and Give Me the Tape and the Crackle best-of.

The new vinyl pressings, mastered from HD audio files transferred from the original tapes, will come in pairs of two, beginning Oct. 26 with the release of 1980 debut In the Flat Field on bronze vinyl and 1981’s Mask on yellow vinyl. On Nov. 23, the label will release 1982’s The Sky’s Gone Out on violet vinyl and Press Eject on white vinyl. Finally, on Dec. 7, comes reissues of 1983’s Burning on the Inside on blue vinyl and the 1998 compilation Crackle (including a “Tom Raider” mix of “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”) on ruby vinyl.

The vinyl reissues are available for pre-order on the Beggars Arkive website.

Bauhaus also will mark its 40th anniversary with the release of The Bela Session, a five-song EP recorded at the band’s first studio session on Jan. 26, 1979 — a collection that includes “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and three previously unreleased recordings. Additionally, former Bauhaus bandmates Peter Murphy and David J are planning a tour of Europe and Australia to celebrate their band’s 40th anniversary.
