Recoil live concert film 'A Strange Hour in Budapest' - update


As we announced a while back (actually, Alan Wilder first announced it in this video interview with Side-Line), there's a live DVD of Recoil in the making. Entitled "A Strange Hour in Budapest", it was shot during the second Budapest presentation (and last of 2010) which was held in the newly-renovated Szikra venue. The show was filmed by Attila Herkó and his team for Umatik using high-definition technology in order to capture the event in its full glory.

The proposed package will feature the full concert film, running at approximately 84 minutes in HD resolution and with 5.1 & stereo audio options. Also included will be some extra promo films and live projections. The format will be limited to Blu-ray only. So if you haven't upgraded yet, now is the time to do so. The exact release date has yet to be determined.

"A Strange Hour" was presented during 2010 and 2011 in 52 cities across the world as part of the 'Selected Events' tour to celebrate 25 years of the Recoil project.

Peter Murphy (BAUHAUS) Rolling Stone Interview


Peter Murphy

On the odds of Bauhaus reuniting



Peter Murphy stopped by the Rolling Stone studio to talk about his recent record, Ninth, and suggested it's best not to hold our breaths for a Bauhaus reunion. "Bauhaus hasn't existed since the last album in 2006, and that was only for 18 days," he tells us. "The further away from each other we are, the better. It's too emotional."

Depeche Mode to Work on New Music This Year



Depeche Mode will begin work on a new album this year. Founding member Martin Gore told The Quietus that his band looks to hit the studio in March to work on what will be their first studio effort since 2009's Sounds of the Universe. They hope to be finished with the new album by the end of this year. That's good news for fans of this neo wave goth act. Gore also said that working with former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke on their forthcoming LP Ssss under their VCMG moniker has worked wonders for him and has stirred his creativity. "It was a nice break for me to be able to go and do something completely different that doesn't involve poring over lyrics and having to think about vocal melodies," he said. "I think I went back to actually writing for the band with much more vigor afterwards, because I had taken such a break. It gave me a real creative impetus." VCMG's Ssss drops in March. It's the first time Gore and Clarke have worked together in 30 years. Track Listing: 'Lowly' 'Zaat' 'Spock' 'Windup Robot' 'Bendy Bass' 'Single Blip' 'Skip This Track' 'Aftermaths' 'Recycle' 'Flux' Do you want to check out Ssss?

Moonspell Working On New Video Off "Alpha Noir" Album

Moonspell Working On New Video Off "Alpha Noir" Album

Moonspell has issued the following announcement about releasing a new music video off the band's upcoming "Alpha Noir" album:

"Lickanthrope will be the first video clip to come out of the Alpha Noir album. It will be directed by Filipe Melo, who worked with the band on the I will see you in my dreams videoclip, recorded ten years ago. The shooting will be made in Nandufe, Tondela, in the central region of Portugal."

Director Filipe Melo offered the following synopsis:

"Little red riding hood enters a bar, in an abandoned house amidst the woods. In this bar, the regulars are not your average kind of people - it's a place of vice, where a pack of wolves and other unearthly creatures find solace. Moonspell are just another part of the varied local entertainment. However when things go wild we will see that the band isn't just what meets the eye.

"In a cross between the pagan Portuguese folklore and a tribute to the classic Hammer movies this videoclip will bring out not only the ferocious intensity of this song but will have its place in Portuguese Film history as the first werewolf transformation ever made in Portugal.

"The videoclip features also several local Theatre and cultural groups, Portuguese actors and a special appearance by the very own Suicide Girls Portugal, in a task force which will blow your mind.

"The video will be premiered in Moonspell's/Napalm Records youtube channels as well as selected TV shows and online pages. Beware the wolves at night, beware the lunar light!"

"Alpha Noir" is set to be released on April 27th via Napalm Records, and the cover artwork is availablehere.
