As reported by Prefix, Nick Cave and the other members of Grinderman announced at the Meredith Music Festival in Australia that the project has finished—at least for now. In front of a 12,000 person audience, Cave said “That’s it for Grinderman. It’s over. See you all in another 10 years when we’ll be even older and uglier.”
Because all the members of Grinderman were also members of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, it’s not clear as of now where the band will head next. As much as we’d love to hear what a new Bad Seeds record sounds like, a new direction for Nick Cave seems equally exciting.
