Bolt the Doors - Grinderman is Back!

With a second album out next month, Nick Cave’s darkly raucous, garage-blues alter-ego incarnation Grinderman (which features three of the Bad Seeds) has announced an extensive tour including fifteen North American dates this fall. Kicking off Nov. 11th in the Big Smoke, shows run through December 1st ending in San Diego (see full tour dates below). This one is a definite not miss.

On the road to promote their new record, Cave plus Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos will follow up its 2007 self-titled debut with the nine track Grinderman 2, set for release Sept. 13th in Europe and Sept. 14th in North America.   The album will be preceded by the single “Heathen Child,” on September 6th as a two-track digital download with the non-album B-side “Star Charmer.” A limited-edition colored-vinyl 12-inch also will be released, with an extra B-side: “Super Heathen Child,” featuring guitar work by King Crimson mainman Robert Fripp.

Although I have to admit that I still (and will always) prefer the Bad Seeds to Grinderman, I'll bet these will be rollicking shows. A little far from home, sadly.
