Bauhaus Bowing Out With New Album

According to Billboard.com, the legendary Goth band Bauhaus has decided to call it quits after the new album and does not plan to tour. The group is eyeing a March 4 release for "Going Away White," its first studio album since 1983. The band reunited in 2005 for the Coachella festival and later toured the world.

"We were getting along really well, but there was an incident that occurred," drummer Kevin Haskins tells Billboard.com, declining to elaborate further. "Some of us just felt that we didn't want to carry on as a working unit."

As such, "Going Away White," which the band is releasing digitally via iTunes and on CD via its own Bauhaus Music imprint through Redeye Distribution, will close the book on Bauhaus. Haskins, guitarist Daniel Ash, bassist David J and vocalist Peter Murphy recorded the album last year after entering the studio "with nothing prepared," according to Haskins.

"A Life Less Lived - The Gothic Box" Details

Billboard.com reports that Rhino have rounded up the top names in goth rock (while only semi-relevant to metal, there are a few relevant bands involved) for the four-disc boxed set "A Life Less Lived -- The Gothic Box," due Sept. 19. Despite loathing the titular term that came to describe their music, bands like Joy Division, the Cure, Bauhaus and the Jesus & Mary Chain transcended labeling to revolutionize rock in the late '70s and early '80s.

Key tracks from those bands are featured on "A Life Less Lived," including opener "Dead Souls" by Joy Division and Bauhaus' "She's in Parties." Other acts represented throughout include the Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Love And Rockets, the Mission (U.K.), the Chameleons, the Damned, Skinny Puppy and AFI.

The fourth disc in the box is a DVD with such evergreen videos as Bauhaus' "Bela Lugosi's Dead," the Cure's "Lullaby," Echo & the Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon," a live version of the Cult's "Spiritwalker" and Love And Rockets' "Ball of Confusion."
