Bauhaus’ DAVID J has kicked off his European / UK tour in support of his new album Missive to an Angel from the Halls of Infamy and Allure’ LP. Famed as founder of both BAUHAUS and LOVE AND ROCKETS, this album is unique from those projects… PAT FISH (aka THE JAZZ BUTCHER) will be David’s special guest for London and Manchester dates. Spanish tour dates are with THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS, and several UK dates have been cancelled in order to make time for rehearsals for the upcoming BAUHAUS reunion shows happening soon in LA.

The album will be released on October 18. While essentially a solo album, it also involves numerous collaborations with the likes of ROSE McGOWAN, ASIA ARGENTO, ANTON NEWCOMBE and the great violinist KAREL HOLAS. Many reviews and David J himself consider this to be his best work to date. He has also announced that this will be his last album as a solo artist.
