Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will be returning with a new album this September, but not before letting audiences experience those new sounds on the big screen first
The new album, titled The Skeleton Tree, is set for release on September 9 with promises of ‘intimacy and starkness‘.
The night before however will see a one-night only screening of concert-film-come-documentary One More Time With Feeling, directed by Andrew Dominick of Chopper and Killing Them Softly fame.

Countless cinemas around the UK are set to host screenings, with many Picturehouse, Everyman and Cineworld venues involved, so towns and cities including Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, London, Birmingham and Bristol, and many more besides will all be playing host to the Cave movie.

“Much more significant”
While the project began as a performance film, the press notes state that the film “evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album”.
Cave has been absent from the public eye in the past 12 months, after the tragic death of his son Arthur in July 2015.
One More Time With Feeling is set to include performances of tracks from the new album, alongside footage shot by Dominik, interviews and improvised commentary from Cave himself.
For Bad Seeds fans, it sounds pretty unmissable.
