Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have announced a 2022 North American tour in support of their new album Carnage.

This is hardly the pair’s first trek together. Ellis joined the Bad Seeds in 1993, first as a part-time string player and then a full-time band member. His role has continued to grow, and he has scored a number of theatrical productions with Cave, including the upcoming film Blonde about Marilyn Monroe. Carnage is their first studio album as a duo, and as a duo, this will be their first North American tour.

The pair will kick off the 17-date jaunt in Asheville, North Carolina in March. They’ll make a number of two-night stands, including in Austin, Oakland, and Montreal, and they’ll spend four nights bouncing around Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York. Check out the full itinerary below, and book your tickets here.

Update – January 31st: Cage and Ellis have added several new dates: March 10th at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles; March 16th at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver; and March 29 at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC. Tickets for these shows go on sale February 4th via Ticketmaster.
