Seminal Australian act Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have just announced a mammoth Australian tour. The announcement comes fresh off the release of their sixteenth album Skeleton Tree, which topped the ARIA charts and got critics raving (including us). It’ll surely rate highly in year-end lists.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are one of Australia’s most prolific and enduring musical exports, as Nick Cave’s induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2009 and Ivor Novello Award win in 2014 reflects. Their vast releases have seen them pick up awards, top charts and sell over 5 million albums worldwide. Skeleton Tree, their latest release, is a dark, ambient effort that yet again showcases Cave’s innate knack for evocative songwriting. It was released alongside an enlightening documentary Once More With Feeling, which explored Cave's grief over the death of his fifteen year old son (an event that distinctly haunts the album).
The tour will see the band play ten dates across Australia and New Zealand, starting in Hobart on the 13th of January. WA fans can catch them at the Perth Arena on January 31st. Tickets come on sale at 9AM on Thursday the 27th of October. They’re known for their killer live shows, so be quick!
