Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds North American Tour Dates Confirmed

By on December 3, 2012
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have confirmed details of an upcoming
North American tour in support of Push the Sky Away, the fifteenth studio
album by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, to be released in February 19, 2013
by Bad Seed Ltd. on CD, vinyl, digital download and as a deluxe edition.
Sharon Van Etten will support for the duration of the tour, which commences
March 14 in Dallas and currently runs through April 3 in Denver. Tickets will
go on sale to the general public beginning Thursday, December 6th at 10am
local time. Check local venues for exact times or visit
and or up-to-date information.
The announcement of the tour coincides with the unveiling of Push The
Sky Away opening track, “We No Who U R.” the first track to be released
from Push the Sky Away. At the heart of Push the Sky Away is a naturalism
and warmth that makes it the most subtly beautiful of all the Bad Seeds
albums. The contemporary settings of myths, and the cultural references
that have time-stamped Nick’s songs of the twenty-first century mist lightly
through details drawn from the life he observed around his seaside home,
through the tall windows on the album’s mysterious and ambiguous cover.
The songs on this album took form in a modest notebook with shellac
covers over the course of almost a year. The notebook is a treasured
analogue artefact but the internet is equally important to Nick: Googling
curiosities, being entranced by exotic Wikipedia entries “whether they’re
true or not”. These songs convey how on the internet profoundly significant
events, momentary fads and mystically-tinged absurdities sit side-by-side
and question how we might recognize and assign weight to what’s
genuinely important.
Push the Sky Away was produced by Nick Launay and recorded at
La Fabrique, a recording studio based in a 19th Century mansion in
the South of France, where the walls of the main studio are lined with
an immense collection of classical vinyl.
“We No Who U R” sets this album in our time; we’re living with the
consequences of actions and innovations that seemed so progressive
in the industrial era. There’s a calm assessment of the gravity of the
situation, and humility. This whole album has a generosity of spirit that’s
established here by a children’s choir singing “we know there’s no need
to forgive.”
“We No Who U R” is available as of December 3 both as an instant
grat download with every pre-order album purchase via
 or iTunesand also as a single download from all digital retailers.
