Original vampire enthusiast and iconic Bauhaus main man PETER MURPHY makes a central cameo appearance as â€˜The Cold Oneâ€™ in Eclipse, the most recent installment of the Twilight series. Eclipse debuts June 30 in the U.S. and July 1 in the UK, where Murphy will be walking the red carpet at the London premiere in Leicester Square at the Odeon Theatre, accompanied by his daughter, Hurihan.
Murphyâ€™s last film appearance was in 1983 when Bauhaus performed â€œBela Lugosiâ€™s Deadâ€ in the opening credit sequence of Tony Scottâ€™s vampire thriller The Hunger starring David Bowie, Catherine De Neuve and Susan Sarandon.
As a bookend to the now-infamous â€œBelaâ€ performance, Peter felt that a cameo in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was too good to turn down. â€œWho else could have and should have done it?â€ he laughs. â€œIt was really lovely and smart of David Slade to ask meâ€¦I was honored, actually.â€
Murphyâ€™s cinematic role marks the commencement of an eventful rest of the year for the artist, who launches his worldwide â€œDirty Dirt Tourâ€ in late July, and is adding the finishing touches to his new studio album NINTH, due in the Fall. Confirmed tour dates, including an August performance at Rebellion Festival in the UK, can be found below. Additional dates will be announced shortly.
Currently living between Istanbul and New York City, the famed post-punk innovator, sonic alchemist and celebrated founding father of the Gothic movement, has been working on several exciting new projects over the past two years, most importantly his long-awaited ninth studio album aptly-titled, Ninth. Produced by David Baron, the set follows: 2004â€™s Unshattered, DustA Live Just For Love (live album) (2001), Wild Birds: 1985-1995 (compilation) (2000), Recall EP (1997), CascadeHoly Smoke (1992), commercial breakthrough Deep (1990), the seminal Love Hysteria (1988) and the 1986 solo debut, Should the World Fail to Fall Apart.
â€œI have had my Ninth album ready to go for a while now,â€ Peter explains. â€œIâ€™ve been playing it live, alongside Bauhaus classics and my own hits, long before the official release and itâ€™s added more stardust to the long shelf life of songs I have under my belt.â€
Most recently, Peter ignited a new generation of fans while appearing with Trent Reznor during his 2009 final Nine Inch Nails tour. Famously descending on a chain from the rafters upside down (like the theatrical genius he is) at New Yorkâ€™s Terminal 5, Peter joined Reznor and his band to perform The Downward Spiral favorite “Reptile,â€ along with Murphyâ€™s “Strange Kind Of Love,” Bauhaus’ “Kick in the Eye,” Joy Divisionâ€™s â€œAtmosphereâ€ and Pere Ubu’s “Final Solution.” Murpyâ€™s cover of Nine Inch Nailsâ€™ â€œHurtâ€ has also been a recent staple of live sets.

Metric and Twilight fans alike have something to be very excited about – a brand-new track by Metric will be featured on the highly-anticipated soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, as the movie’s theme song. The song, titled “Eclipse (All Yours)”, was co-written by Metric lead singer Emily Haines and guitarist Jimmy Shaw with legendary film composer Howard Shore, who wrote the acclaimed score for the Lord of the Rings film trilogy among many others.
“I’ve always wanted to write music for a film, but I never expected to start with something on this scale,” said Emily Haines about the soundtrack. “I don’t have to tell you what an honor it was to be hand-picked by Howard to do this work. We are massively grateful for the opportunity.”
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released on June 8, 2010 via Chop Shop/Atlantic. The first single from the album will be Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”. Metric’s “Eclipse (All Yours)” will be featured along with music from such major artists as Vampire Weekend, Muse, The Black Keys, Bat for Lashes, Florence and the Machine, Band of Horses and The Dead Weather. The soundtrack was supervised by Chop Shop’s Alexandra Patsavas (Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl) who worked closely with the film’s director David Slade. The soundtrack to the previous film, which included Thom Yorke, The Killers, OK Go, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Muse, sold almost 4 million copies worldwide. The soundtrack topped the Billboard top 200 chart upon release.
