Today, iconic frontman Peter Murphy releases his live DVD, Mr. Moonlight Tour – 35 Years Of Bauhaus, filmed in Los Angeles last summer at the Fonda Theatre. The Mr. Moonlight Tour marked the first time since 2006 that Murphy performed full Bauhaus sets, and the first time he ever did so on his own.

Bauhaus formed in 1978 and achieved worldwide cult status that continues to this day. As the main man of the acclaimed outfit, Peter Murphy helped usher in ground breaking opaque moods and atmospheres into the post-punk landscape. Bauhaus originally split in 1983, but eventually bowed to public pressure to reform in 1998 and again in 2005.
"Sinéad's nearly 30-year career forms a portrait of an artist in conflict; a brilliant singer who remains musically, politically and personally uncompromising after forays into folk, pop, standards, reggae and points beyond. By definition, her catalog is erratic, but it's consistently bold and surprising...Its first single, "Take Me to Church," looks back on a lifetime of battles and broken loves, only to find pathways to peace, redemption, forgiveness and wonder…the song provides a stirring and frequently beautiful glimpse into the mind of a singer who searches constantly for improvements in herself." - NPR

"8 Good Reasons" is an emotive and beautiful song that represents the very best of her songwriting, her ever-powerful vocal set to a an uplifting chorus produced by longterm collaborator John Reynolds.

Guster kicks off their US tour in January, celebrating the release of their new album Evermotion (out Jan. 13, 2015 on Nettwerk/Ocho Mule). Supported by a strong community of fans cultivated through their vibrant, relentlessly charming live show, Guster have been praised by the Boston Globe for a performance that "offers both contours and depth, [weaving] a little melancholy and a little dry humor into songs echoing the dreamy escapism of the Beatles and Beach Boys" and by the Washington Post, who hailed them as "a reliably unique and engaging live band," adding, "No one can say these guys don't put on a show." The band will perform at an intimate sold-out Grammy Museum event in LA this month ahead of the winter tour supported by multi-instrumentalist Kishi Bashi. Listen to three new songs off the album including single “Simple Machine,” praised by TIME for its “frantic beats and crawling synthesizers,” and the breezy, brass-infused “Never Coming Down” via The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon: http://bit.ly/1tgo1nl
