Seminal Australian alt-rock group will release their first album for three years and it will be accompanied by a film
Their fifteenth studio album Push The Sky Away was released in 2013, making it to No 29 on the US Billboard 200, No 3 on the UK Album Chart and No 1 on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart. Now it has been reported that Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds will release the follow-up to Push The Sky Away this September.
The as yet untitled album will be accompanied by a film, whose name has also yet to be revealed, in which the band will play tracks from their new album. The film is scheduled to be premiered on 8 September, with the album to follow a day later.
The announcement was made on Laemmle Theatres’ website, who advise: “The record has an intimacy and starkness that the film’s photographic style will reflect. It will be shot in black and white, colour and 3-D. The idea is to create an experience that is immersive but also elegant, that feels both immediate and archival.”
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds were formed after the dissolution of noise-rock troupe The Birthday Party. The band released their first album, From Her To Eternity, in June 1984 and have since gone on to establish themselves as one of the most enduring and successful Australian bands of all time.
