Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds has announced a North American tour in support of its upcoming Push The Sky Away. The record comes out Feb. 19, and the tour kicks off March 14 in Texas—conveniently right around SXSW, though nothing's been officially announced there yet. Sharon Van Etten will open all dates, making the run that much more awesome. A full list of dates is below, and tickets go on sale starting Thursday, Dec. 6.
Cave and the gang have also released the album's first single, “We No Who U R,” which somehow is not already a Ke$ha song title. The track is available as a free download with every album pre-order made both on Nick Cave’s website or through iTunes.
