Nick Cave on his last European Tour.

Nick Cave is returning to North America next year. The Australian, who might be a vampire and has written some of the darkest and most evocative songs of the past few decades, is on his first extensive tour to hit the middle of the country with the Bad Seeds in a while. This time, he's got Push the Sky Away in his quiver ready to puncture us.

The 2013 album is quite a bit softer and contemplative compared to the hard-edged second Grinderman album Cave created a few years back. But everything from his catalog, notably his early Birthday Party albums, can tap into intense feelings for its listeners. This new tour should do the same.


Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds today announced the dates for the trek. The State Theatre hosts him in Minneapolis on June 21.

Gimme Noise can offer up some exclusive access to presale tickets for the tour, and a digital download of "The Mercy Seat" and "Mermaids" from Cave's Live From KCRW album, which will be released on Black Friday at participating independent record stores. "Mermaids" in particular represents one of the high points of Push the Sky Away. "I believe in God / I believe in mermaids too / I believe in 72 virgins on a chain / Why not? Why not?" he sings with stolid conviction. Click the fancy icon below to open up your dreams.
