Peter Murphy New Single, PledgeMusic Campaign, Tour Update

 "Harsh, droning, sinuously catchy, and awash in Murphy’s ink-black croon, ‘Hang Up’ is not something you ought to disobey.” – The A.V. Club

Peter Murphy has released lead single “Hang Up” from his forthcoming tenth solo album, Lion, out June 3 (available for pre-order now).

Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), Lion is comprised of 11 tracks that possesses an elegant master of tone – bass heavy, stark, shimmering and symphonic. It sustains a heart-in-throat tension from start to finish.

In addition to the impending release of Lion, Murphy also launched a PledgeMusic campaign for his upcoming live DVD, Mr. Moonlight Tour: 35 Years of Bauhaus, filmed in July 2013 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Through this pledge campaign, fans have the opportunity to pre-order the DVD and gain exclusive access to a series of free bonus content and special items.

Murphy spent much of 2013 on the road celebrating 35 of Bauhaus on his critically-acclaimed Mr. Moonlight Tour. With the upcoming release of Lion, Murphy is ready to turn his attention back to his solo work and will launch a North American summer tour starting on June 9th in New York City at Irving Plaza. The previously announced late May/early June dates have been rescheduled as the second leg of the U.S. tour following newly announced appearances in Mexico and South America from July 9 – July 20. Peter will return to the U.S. on July 24th in Las Vegas and continue through the States from there.
