Welcome back, Bauhaus ... now get lost



Bauhaus Here's some bizarre music news: Bauhaus, everyone's favorite doom-and-gloom group from the 80s, is reuniting to record its first new album since 1983. And then it's calling it quits again.

"Going Away White" is expected to be released March 4, according to, but the band won't tour to support it.

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

One of the first goth bands, Bauhaus was formed in Northampton, England, in 1978 by Haskins, Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash and David J. The band broke up in '83 when Murphy went solo. The other Bauhaus members continued on as Love and Rockets. The band was probably best known for their nine-minute-long opus,  Bela Lugosi's Dead.
