Bela Lugosi’s Dead is a 2014 cover version of Bauhaus’ gloomy yet mesmerising gothic anthem of the same title by Scottish synth pop band Chvrches. The group consists of Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, additional synthesisers and samplers), Iain Cook (synthesisers, guitar, bass, vocals), and Martin Doherty (synthesisers, samplers, vocals).

Chvrches poppy synth re-interpretation was commissioned for the soundtrack of 2014 release Vampire Academy.
