Peter Murphy Unveils New Video For "I Spit Roses"

“I am never ‘dark’ but always Luminescent.” - Peter Murphy

The Iconic Peter Murphy has just unveiled his first new video for stand-out track “I Spit Roses” from his recently released and critically acclaimed solo album Ninth. Directed by Justin Coloma, the video features intricate, hand-painted sets that are a modern take on the ornate, art-deco era aesthetic.

Ninth is Peter Murphy’s first solo album in seven years and since the permanent dissolution of Bauhaus in 2009. In celebration of the release, Murphy returned to the States for rare in-store appearances and special live club showcases earlier this month. These select appearances wrap up on June 29 in Los Angeles at the Troubadour.

Praise for Ninth:

“…a dynamic rock record…one of the strongest of his career.” – LA Times

“…badass new effort…” – Time Out New York

“…one taste of ‘Seesaw Sway’ or ‘I Spit Roses’ will remind you exactly who you’re dealing with: the man. It is punk, jaunt, goth, doom, ’80s gloom, everything is present and accounted for." – Consequence Of

“Murphy’s own music oozes drama, personality, melody, sinister ambience, propulsive rhythm and lyrical invention at every turn. 'Ninth' displays all of these repeatedly across the expanse of its 11 arresting compositions." -- Buffalo News

“Ninth is a striking mixture of punk-fueled swagger and atmospheric noir.” – Blurt Magazine

"Murphy’s vocals have never sounded better...’Ninth’ is a virile return to form." – PopMatters

"...Ninth sounds alive...It’s all put together in a right-sized package...with no filler to speak of, then wrapped in warm production from David Baron, who finds the proper balance of shadows and light." – All Music

"SumOlogy: A surprisingly hard rocking, expertly crafted piece of gothic art rock from the genre’s undisputed master of elegant macabre pop." –
