Nick Cave tours several continents in support of new album; everything sells out and goths get way gother

Nick Cave, International Lord of Mustaches and Human Manifestation of the Preacher’s Hand Tattoos in the 1955 American cinema classic Night of the Hunter, continues to dangle tantalizing, painfully sold-out tourdates in front of fans. Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds — including Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Thomas Wydler, Jim Sclavunos and Conway Savage — are jet-setting around the globe this winter to rep their forthcoming album Push the Sky Away, due February 19 in the United States. Cave and his band of merry men will touch down in Mexico City for a couple days, then head off to Australia before returning once more to the US and Canada. And pretty much every show is sold out.

So it’s a good thing they’ve got these European summer festival dates lined up, huh? And more summer festival dates are rumored to be in the works. The internet is currently all aflutter about the likely timing of a Coachella stop, and I, Liz Louche: Internet Detective, have deduced from Sir Nick’s Dallas dates that he might, just might, have the right timing for a surprise SXSW appearance. That’s just a guess, of course, but HEY NICK IF YOU WANNA COME TO AUSTIN I WILL TOTALLY BUY YOU A 3AM STREET TACO. There now. That’s an incentive, isn’t it. America, you’re welcome.

In other news, the lyrics video for “Jubilee Street”, the second single from the new album, landed on the Nick Cave YouTube channel a few days ago. You know, just in case you got those Unconfirmed Tacos And Sold Out Shows Blues.
