Dates in the likes of Brooklyn, Pittsburgh, Boston, New York and Salt Lake City are already sold out. The touring line up includes frontman Nick Cave, violinist Warren Ellis, bassist Martyn Casey, drummers Thomas Wydler and Jim Sclavunos, keyboardist Conway Savage, guitarist George Vjestica and percussionist Larry Mullins.

The band's latest album 'Skeleton Tree' was released alongside the feature film documentary 'One More Time With Feeling', which explored the making of the album. It was directed by Andrew Dominik ('Chopper', 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford') and followed the darker aspects that wove into the songwriting after Cave's son died. Meanwhile, the critically acclaimed album itself was co-produced by Warren Ellis and Nick Launay and topped the charts in many countries while reaching number two in the UK.
