Forming in 1985 after the first split of their band Bauhaus, the seminal, groundbreaking trio of Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins have been keeping busy with preparations for their upcoming national tour, the vinyl reissues of their Beggars Arkive album catalog, and the upcoming release of their brand new cd/digital collection titled My Dark Twin, a companion to the band’s 1996 album Sweet F.A. The 22 track double CD/Digital release contains eight previously unreleased versions and six unreleased songs from the Sweet F.A. sessions. Daniel Ash has created an exclusive digital mix of the title track which you can listen to now: “My Dark Twin (Doppelgänger mix).” Both My Dark Twin and the expanded edition of Sweet F.A. will be released on June 9, 2023. Vinyl reissues of Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven and Express came out in January and Earth, Sun, Moon and Love and Rockets (self-titled) came out on April 28th.

Love And Rockets will be touring the U.S. beginning May 20th with The Cruel World Festival in Los Angeles and circling the States, including shows in Salt Lake City, Seattle, Chicago, New York City, Boston, Atlanta and a trio of shows in Texas. Special guest for May 24th in Salt Lake City and May 27th in Portland, OR will be Soriah. Support on all other dates including the first Portland show (May 26th) will be Vinsantos.
Named after the underground comic by the Hernandez brothers, Love And Rockets made seven records over the course of thirteen years. They announced themselves to the world with their radically unique take on the classic Temptations song “Ball Of Confusion.” This debut proved that they were going to be a force to contend with. It became a huge seller and a popular club hit in the US and Canada, where it also went gold. It marked the beginning of a career that would span an impressive 14 years and seven albums.
The legacy of the band has only grown with more people realizing the extent of their influence and generations of new fans discovering them. The list of artists who cite their influence is impressive: The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, A Place To Bury Strangers, Jane’s Addiction, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck, Maynard Keenan, Dubfire and the Pixies.
