Peter Murphy: Ninth: new album coming fall 2010

Ex-Bauhaus front man, Peter Murphy, more often known as “the Goth father”, is well ready for the release of his ninth album, appropriately yet not so imaginatively entitled “Ninth. The new material, produced by David Baron, shall be released this fall, right after the ending of his current tour, The Dirty Dirt.

I have had myNinth 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.” ““Ninth” is a continuation of theGo Away White trajectory”, said Murphy, referring to the full-length release of Bauhaus in 2008 since the quartet’s last album, 1983’s “Burning From the Inside. “It has testosterone pouring out of it. At the same time, it’s as beautiful as any female siren.”

I carry the flag of Bauhaus now,” Murphy adds. “Since no one else can, or wants to for that matter. I owe this to its vast audience. And what’s more, I am fully plugged into both Peter Murphy and Bauhaus: all the same artist in essence.” Peter also reveals teasing information about “Ninth”, crediting his present inspiration to his “roots as a seminal culture changer”.

Besides his solid musical career, Murphy achieved success on screen as well, starring in the teen vampire flick, ‘Eclipse’, the latest of the ‘Twilight’ series, as well as in ‘The Hunger’ in 1983, along with David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon.

Further ASP, Eisbrecher, Blutengel, Combichrist and many other Top Acts of the scene enthralled the audience with outstanding performances. Each day at noon the “Theater am Tanzbrunnen” opened with interesting talks, readings, musical comedy, film screenings and much more, before the party-area took command of the evening with more than 20 DJ´s from all over the world.

tenek on the wire

Watch out on September 06, 2010 for Toffeetones Records’ release of tenek’s new album: ‘On the Wire’.

Confirming a long-term relationship between house and band, following two EP’s, two singles and one album, the UK duo’s new album is going to sweep you off your both feet. The Nine/Mesh’s Geoff Pinckney and Pete Steer bring you a coherent and plausible eleven-track new album this fall, which most certainly should attract the attention of synthpop and actually all electronica aficionados.
