February 26th 2021 – Finally something good came out of this pandemic – Nick Cave, whose cancelled tour with The Bad Seeds still regret, now surprise-released a new album. Carnage is a first non-soundtrack release with Warren Ellis, a long time collaborator and compatriot. The duo have composed Carnage during lockdown.
