They will then visit Manchester Apollo (October 30), Glasgow Barrowland (October 31) and Edinburgh Usher Hall (November 1).The band are also confirmed for Open’er festival in Poland and La Route Du Rock festival in France.

Last week, Nick Cave’s other band Grinderman reformed to play Coachella Valley Festival of Music and Arts in California this April. When asked previously why were getting back together after splitting in 2011, Cave responded: “Every other shitty band is doing it, why not someone who’s actually good.” The quartet – who boasted much the same line-up as Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – released two albums; a self-titled debut in 2007 and a follow up, ‘Grinderman 2’, in 2010.
