Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds to launch new album at London show
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds are set to launch their new album, Push The Sky Away, with a special live show at Her Majesty's Theatre in London on February 10.
The band will be playing the album in full with strings and a choir. A short film by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard about the making of the album, which is out February 18, will also be screened at the event.
Similar events will be held in Paris at Trianon (February 11), Berlin Admiralspalast (February 13) and Los Angeles Fonda Theatre (February 21).
Tickets go on sale at Nickcave.com at 4pm (GMT) on January 17.
Push The Sky Away will be Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' 15th studio album.
It follows 2008's Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! and was recorded by regular Bad Seeds and Grinderman collaborator Nick Launay at La Fabrique studios, a 19th century mansion in the south of France.
Speaking about the album, Nick Cave said: "If I were to use that threadbare metaphor of albums being like children, then 'Push The Sky Away' is the ghost-baby in the incubator and Warren [Ellis]'s loops are its tiny, trembling heartbeat."
The band will be playing North American, Mexican and Australian shows over the coming months and are rumoured to be playing the Coachella Festival in California in April.
They will be playing European festival dates in the summer.
