LEGENDARY BAUHAUS MAIN MAN APPEARS IN UPCOMING
TWILIGHT FILM “ECLIPSE”
ANNOUNCES ‘THE DIRTY DIRT’ WORLDWIDE TOUR THIS SUMMER
NEW ALBUM NINTH COMING FALL ‘10
New York, NY - Iconic Bauhaus main man PETER MURPHY makes a central cameo appearance as ‘The Cold One’ in Eclipse, the most recent installment of the Twilight series. Eclipse debuts June 30 in the U.S. and July 1 in the UK, where Murphy will be walking the red carpet at the London premiere in Leicester Square at the Odeon Theatre (accompanied by his daughter, Hurihan).
Murphy’s last film appearance was in 1983 when Bauhaus performed “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” in the opening credit sequence of Tony Scott’s vampire thriller The Hunger starring David Bowie, Catherine De Neuve and Susan Sarandon.
As a bookend to the now-infamous “Bela” performance, Peter felt that a cameo in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was too good to turn down. “Who else could have and should have done it?” he laughs. “It was really lovely and smart of David Slade to ask me…I was honored, actually.”
Murphy’s cinematic role marks the commencement of an eventful rest of the year for the artist, who launches his worldwide “Dirty Dirt Tour” in late July, and is adding the finishing touches to his new studio album NINTH, due in the Fall. Confirmed tour dates, including an August performance at Rebellion Festival in the UK, can be found below. Additional dates will be announced shortly.
Currently living between Istanbul and New York City, the famed post-punk innovator, sonic alchemist and celebrated founding father of the Gothic movement, has been working on several exciting new projects over the past 2 years, most importantly his long-awaited ninth studio album aptly-titled, Ninth. Produced by David Baron, the set follows: 2004’s Unshattered, Dust (2002), A Live Just For Love (live album) (2001), Wild Birds: 1985-1995 (compilation) (2000), Recall EP (1997), Cascade (1995), Holy Smoke (1992), commercial breakthrough Deep (1990), the seminal Love Hysteria (1988) and the 1986 solo debut, Should the World Fail to Fall Apart.
“I have had my Ninth album ready to go for a while now,” Peter explains. “I’ve been playing it live, alongside Bauhaus classics and my own hits, long before the official release and it’s added more stardust to the long shelf life of songs I have under my belt.”
Most recently, Peter ignited a new generation of fans while appearing with Trent Reznor during his 2009 final Nine Inch Nails tour. Famously descending on a chain from the rafters upside down (like the theatrical genius he is) at New York’s Terminal 5, Peter joined Reznor and his band to perform The Downward Spiral favorite "Reptile,” along with Murphy’s "Strange Kind Of Love," Bauhaus' "Kick in the Eye," Joy Division’s “Atmosphere” and Pere Ubu's "Final Solution." Murphy’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” has also been a recent staple of live sets.
Peter Murphy will be joined on the UK dates by one of his favorite artists, Lettie. Find more info at http://www.myspace.com/lettiemusic & http://www.lettiemusic.com.
