Earlier in the month, Australian singer Nick Cave announced that his most recent project, Grinderman, was disbanding, leaving many to wonder what Cave would devote his time to now. Today, Faster Louder reported Cave has decided to turn his attention back to the Bad Seeds, who have been on hiatus since the release of 2008’s Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!.
Jim Sclavunos, drummer for both the Bad Seeds and Grinderman, said: “We have kind of neglected Bad Seeds of late… It’s been about four years since we have done anything and I think it’s high time we made some beautiful music together, again.”
Though Cave announced at Grinderman’s final show that that outfit wouldn’t reform for another 10 years, Sclavunos clarified, stating “who knows what will happen in five or 10 years time. ... I can’t predict what the future of Grinderman is — if there is a future.”
Though Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are currently working on new material and it’s likely they’ll release a new album in 2012, no official details have surfaced yet.
