The iconic Bauhaus frontman, Peter Murphy (aka the godfather of goth) returns to Los Angeles for two blissful performances on Thursday, July 3 and Saturday, July 5 at the El Rey Theatre. Murphy just released his tenth solo album, Lion on June 3. 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. This new album is going to sound incredible live and we highly recommend you attend one of this nights at the El Rey. Supporting Murphy on July 3 are RINGO DEATHSTARR, and My Jerusalem on July 5. Lucky for you, we’re giving away tickets to both show dates!
