Iconic frontman Peter Murphy will release his tenth solo album, Lion, on June 3rd, 2014. 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 an interview with Billboard.com, Murphy describes Lion as “a mixture of stuff…almost like operas for the dispossessed.
It’s very romantic and very deep and emotional, quite symphonic in places, but then becomes, like, a rabble-rousing pirate
Lion will be released as a LIMITED EDITION 2-CD set with the bonus disc featuring classic Live songs from the recent
Mr. Moonlight - 35 Years of Bauhaus Tour.
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
30-city North American tour starting on May 22nd in Las Vegas and ending with two nights at LA’s Fonda Theatre on
July 3rd and 5th.
