Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have lined up their first tour dates for the U.S. in at least five years. They're touring in suport of the newly hatched Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
It's the band's 14th studio album and was recorded in London last year with producer Nick Launay. Dig is a modern day retelling of the biblical story of Lazarus, set in New York.
"Ever since I can remember hearing the Lazarus story, when I was a kid, you know, back in church, I was disturbed and worried by it. Traumatized, actually," said Nick Cave when talking about how he was influenced to write the album.
"As a child it gave me the creeps, to be honest. I've taken Lazarus and stuck him in New York City, in order to give the song, a hip, contemporary feel."
