Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds drive off on 2014 tour, leaving behind a trail of delicate rhododendron petals

Hello, bozos. Despite your placement in the not-so-proud tribe of bozos, I can assume you, at least, know about Nick Cave. So let’s not waste our time bio-graphing this legendary Australian post-punk musician, let’s just get to the point. Nick Cave, who doesn’t just tour America every day, is bringing himself and his Bad Seeds to our fair nation this coming summer. They’ll be supporting their 2013 release, Push the Sky Away, an album acclaimed by those relevant. Look below for the dates, then buy tickets, you bozo. “When?” cries a bozo. November 20, if you can get them on pre-sale, November 22 for general on-sale. That’s when.

Since he is nearly a saint among men, Nick Cave has something special planned for the Black Friday (November 29) edition of Record Store Day. Participating stores will be offering Live from KCRW, a new live record from the band available on CD and vinyl. “B-b-b-but what if I don’t live near a participating store,” cries the bozo once again. Don’t worry, poor dumb-dumb, the album will receive a digital release on December 3. See, don’t waste your tears, everything is fine. Bozo.
