Former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy today announced he’s being forced to postpone his 15-night residency at The Chapel in San Francisco until 2018 after nodules were discovered on his vocal cords that will necessitate treatment and an extended period of recovery.
Former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy will perform a 15-night residency at The Chapel in San Francisco in June and July, performing “a retrospective of his greatest solo albums in their entirety” along with a handful of classic tracks from his prior band. Tickets for the concerts go on sale Monday.
Peter Murphy will chronicle last year’s Stripped Tour — which, as the the trek’s title suggests, featured stripped-down performances of his solo material and Bauhaus classics — with a 12-track live record this spring called Bare-Boned and Sacred. The album is due out March 10.
This week’s new releases include brand-new studio albums from Bob Mould, Peter Murphy, Echo & The Bunnymen, Camper Van Beethoven and James, plus reissues from Morrissey and Soundgarden, and a new latter-period best-of from Paul Weller.
With the release of his 10th solo album Lion now just three weeks away, Peter Murphy is offering up a second track from the forthcoming record: “I Am My Own Name,” an ominous slow-builder that pays off in a big way. You can stream the full track via the music video posted here.
In addition to releasing a brand-new studio album this June, Peter Murphy is now taking pre-orders via PledgeMusic for “Mr. Moonlight Tour: 35 Years of Bauhaus,” a DVD release and 10-inch vinyl EP that was filmed/recorded at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles last summer.
Peter Murphy today debuted the first single off his upcoming 10th solo album Lion, a record produced by bassist Youth of Killing Joke that finds the former Bauhaus frontman delving, perhaps not surprisingly, into heavier sounds than he explored on 2011′s Ninth.
Former Bauhuas frontman Peter Murphy this morning confirmed the full dates for his 33-date North American tour in support of his forthcoming 10th album Lion, a record that he’s also previewing for the first time via a 6-minute video that teases a number of the album’s 11 tracks.
Peter Murphy will return to the road for a late spring/early summer U.S. tour in support of his forthcoming 10th album Lion, and, while he has yet to formally announce the itinerary, dates have begun popping up in New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Texas, and even Omaha, Neb.
Peter Murphy returns with brand-new music late this spring as he releases his much-anticipated 10th album Lion, an 11-track collection produced by Killing Joke bassist Youth that the former Bauhaus frontman previewed in rough form over the PA before concerts on his 2013 tour.
Up to 40 Peter Murphy fans will get the first crack at hearing the former Bauhaus frontman’s forthcoming album Lion next month when the singer hosts a private listening party “at a secret location in the Los Angeles area,” with the promise of “an unprecedented discussion between artist and audience.”
Peter Murphy may be out on the road celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus with sets filled entirely by music performed by his old band, but he’s looking forward as well as he works on the follow-up to his 2011 album Ninth, a new record called Lion that’s being produced by Youth and is expected to arrive sometime in early 2014.
