The Bad Seeds men compose soundtrack to 'West of Memphis'

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis collaborate on West Memphis Three documentary score
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds and Grinderman have collaborated on the score to new film West of Memphis, reports Pitchfork.

The documentary film, which this week received its premiere at the Sundance film festival in Utah, looks at the case of the 'West Memphis Three'. The controversial case saw three men released from prison last year after serving 18 years in prison for murdering three children, a crime many believe they did not commit. The film focuses on the men's supporters and, reports Reuters, attributes the crime to one of the victim's stepfathers. Scroll down to watch a trailer for the film.

Cave and Ellis have worked together on movie soundtracks before, including 2005's 'The Proposition' and 2009's 'The Road'.

It is thought that Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds could be releasing a follow up to 2008's 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!' this year. Jim Sclavunos, who plays with both the Bad Seeds and Grinderman, has said that he and his bandmates had 'neglected' the Bad Seeds, but that it was 'high time' they started making music together again.

Speaking to Faster Louder, at the end of last year he said:

We have kind of neglected Bad Seeds of late... Its been about four years since we have done anything and I think it's high time we made some beautiful music together, again.


The quotes follow Nick Cave's onstage revelation that Grinderman were 'over'. As the band closed their set at the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria, Cave said: "That's it for Grinderman. It's over... See you all in another 10 years when we'll be even older and uglier."
