This Summer, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are heading out on a massive tour of North America still shining brightly from the success of 2013's 'Push The Sky Away' and 'Live from KCRW." (The live album that was recorded during the week's break between performances at last year's Cochella.) The weird and wonderful alternative Aussie rocker's live show has been described by Pitchfork as 'consistently exhilarating' as the ultimate, audience-loving front man brings the snake-hipped charm and manages to deliver intimate performances to sell out arena.

Formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1983, The Bad Seeds have wound their way through many strange sounds over their 15 studio albums, from the quietly rebellious post punk scene of the 80's, to the more garage rock influenced records of the last few years, with a little bit of a haunted carnival thrown in for good measure. Cave's brooding voice can elegantly navigate even the most crushing narrative, and continues to thrive through their stylistic exploration.

This up coming outing sees the band take on 20 venues, a feat that Cave feels more than a match for, "(Playing) live is about transforming and there's an extraordinary energy that comes from being sandwiched between a hungry audience and a very powerful band." Proving that even after two decades together, there is no plans to stop creating the sometimes tranquil, sometimes spine-chilling, but always incredible, sound that has arguably made them into indie icons.
