New Bauhaus Album Set to Drop in March, Trigger Awakening of a New Global Consciousness

Some people believe the year 2012 will bring about great changes for those of us dwelling here on planet Earth. From alien buffs to Mayan calendar devotees to the London Olympics planning committee, there can be no doubt that millions of people all over the world are expecting something utterly astonishing and life-altering to occur. And while predictions about what exactly will occur in 2012 may differ, each theory is united by one underlying quality... that of being totally, completely wrong.

I'm not trying to harsh on the people hoping for the awakening of an enlightened global consciousness. This could very well happen, but much sooner than the sages have predicted and for a much different reason! You see, in a recent Billboard interview, Kevin Haskins, drummer for seminal goth-rock acts Love and Rockets and Bauhaus, has revealed the release date for the brand new and final Bauhaus studio album!!! The album, titled Going Away White, is due for digital and CD release on March 4, 2008, on the band's Bauhaus Music imprint via Redeye Distribution. Clearly this piece of information had been overlooked by the ancient Mayans, or they would have made some very different predictions.

The historical significance of this event is indisputable. Bauhaus reunited in 2005 for a performance at the Coachella music festival and later went on to spread the good word of goth around the world. The band went to work in the studio "with nothing prepared," but is now excited to release an album Haskins says will fit comfortably within the Bauhaus oeuvre. Unfortunately, Bauhaus will not be touring in support of the record. "We were getting along really well, but there was an incident that occurred," Haskins cryptically explained to "Some of us just felt that we didn't want to carry on as a working unit."

Going Away White includes the new tracks "Adrenaline" and "Endless Summer of the Damned," which Bauhaus first showcased on their 2006
tour with Nine Inch Nails. I hope that you'll agree with me that based
on this news, and a careful numerological analysis of the song titles, mankind can now expect a truly momentous event to occur in 2008, and
not in 2012 as many people have incorrectly predicted. It will be on March 4, 2008 when we can expect a brilliant awakening. The signs may not be obvious, but when the streets become crowded with more and more people dressed entirely in black, when radio once again resounds with the swirling guitars of Bauhaus, we will all know that the world has become a better, if darker place.
