Nick Cave and several of his band The Bad Seeds are to release an album under the name Grinderman early next year.
The band features are Cave on vocals and guitar, backed by Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos.
The as-yet-untitled LP, which is reported to be “foul-mouthed and noisy”, will be release on March 5.
Speaking about the record Casey said: “It wasn’t consciously two fingers to maturity but I remember thinking, all the way through, ‘This isn’t bad for a bunch of old farts’”, while Cave added: “We’re just searching for a bit of freedom.”
The track ‘No Pussy Blues’ can be heard on the band’s MySpace site Myspace.ccom/grinderman.
