Commanding a massive audience at CRUEL WORLD Festival which took place this past weekend (May 14-15, 2022) in Pasadena, CA, BAUHAUS enthralled the audience with a blistering set from their iconic music catalogue.


Los Angeles Times

“Shadows of the band swayed in the strobe lights while Murphy’s spindly arms were outstretched in the starched position of a crucifix. It was the height of haunted heaven for those looking for their fix of the dark side.” 


Los Angeles Daily News

“Singer Peter Murphy often retreated to the shadows while guitarist Daniel Ash pulled harsh shards of sound from his guitar. ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead,’ the band’s signature song, let Murphy and Ash continue in that manner, which bassist David J and drummer Kevin Haskins kept the night rumbling on.” 



“Bauhaus epitomized the spirit of Cruel World…. Under a nearly full moon — appropriately, a lunar eclipse coincided with the festival — but often in shadow, Bauhaus’ potent set had moments of sheer macabre magic.


Rock Cellar Magazine

“The pioneering rock group was completely riveting — right from the moment Murphy’s face was shown in tight black and white focus on the big screens amid opener ‘Double Dare. The British quartet’s stinging musical churn made it even more menacing.”


All Music Magazine:

“Every song they played was perfectly executed.”

“Goth rock pioneers Bauhaus delivered a chilling rendition of their debut single, ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ at their first live show in 13 years Sunday. The gig took place at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, capturing the band in fine form as they effortlessly moved from the song’s abstract, spine-tingling intro into its eerily serene guitar jangle. Frontman Peter Murphy expertly navigated the song’s steady build as well, unleashing a mighty, reverb-soaked howl toward the end as he sang,
‘Oh Bela, Bela’s undead’.”


“Unlike most bands of their vintage, Bauhaus have retained a thrillingly raw, visceral, experimental edge. While Murphy’s still-powerful voice careened between strangulated croak and feral howl on high-drama songs such as In the Flat Field and The Passion of Lovers, Daniel Ash’s guitar was all jagged scrapes, disruptive shudders and coffin-lid creaks. One of the band’s biggest hits, She’s in Parties, opened out into an enjoyably rambling avant-rock instrumental… Bauhaus put the disco into discordant.” – The Times (UK)


“Anticipation was electric for their return — a line stretched around the block before doors, a queue that only rivaled that to the merch table — and fans came out dressed to the nines. The band did not disappoint.” – BROOKLYN VEGAN


“Those who expected to see an iconic band were not disappointed…  it was clear that Bauhaus were back with a vengeance.” – BUZZBANDS.LA
