Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have added three new shows to their upcoming North American tour in support of their rapturously received album CARNAGE.

Tickets to the newly added dates — March 10 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, March 16 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, and March 29 at the Lincoln Theatre
in Washington, D.C. — can be purchased at beginning Friday, February 4 at 10am local time.

Additionally, Cave and Ellis will bring CARNAGE to American homes March 2 when they perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

While they have composed and recorded soundtracks together, and Ellis is a long-term member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, CARNAGE is the first full album of songs Cave and Ellis have released as a duo. The pair’s creative chemistry is rooted in their long history of music making, both as collaborators and as individual artists. They first crossed paths in 1993, when Ellis played violin on several songs for the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Let Love In, before going on to join the band as a full-time member. The two have also recorded in Grinderman, formed in 2006, and have worked together on numerous film and TV scores.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ new album CARNAGE is out now.

“Some heavy, tormented records that reflect the pulverizing grief of the post-pandemic world feel like they might crush a listener; others offer the consolation of a weighted blanket. CARNAGE, the first official album from Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds bandmate Warren Ellis, is the latter, rumbling toward catharsis through impenetrable noise and jarring lyricism balanced precariously on sudden celestial arrangements.” —THE NEW YORKER

“(4 stars)… two Bad Seeds confront loneliness, cabin fever, and white supremacy — while still showing a glint of optimism… as sparse as it sounds, there’s great depth to CARNAGE.” —ROLLING STONE

“… the pair find an awe-filled beauty in the both the minutiae of the everyday and the immensity of existence… a moving, transportive meditation on what comes after—after grief, after life, after love—and finds reasons to keep going.” —AV CLUB

“… at turns brutal, surreal, and romantic… draws from the formal language of modern cinema, concerned less with verses and choruses than images, settings, visceral portrayals of extreme emotional states.” —PITCHFORK

“It’s been a hell of a year, and perhaps a glimpse of heaven is a better prescription than a war cry… what Cave and Ellis have crafted with CARNAGE is a refreshing respite from chaos, a record that sits at the burning edge of dawn and anticipates destruction’s undoing.” —CONSEQUENCE

“… stunningly, heartbreakingly beautiful… CARNAGE is brutal in a spiritual sense more than a stylistic one, approaching these moments of elemental beauty only after traversing rocky ground.” —STEREOGUM
