To celebrate the launch of ‘Wild God’, Rough Trade will host an “exclusive Q&A event” with Cave at Kings Place in London on Thursday August 29.

In a previous statement, Cave explained of ‘Wild God’: “I hope the album has the effect on listeners that it’s had on me. It bursts out of the speaker, and I get swept up with it. It’s a complicated record, but it’s also deeply and joyously infectious.

“There is never a masterplan when we make a record. The records rather reflect back the emotional state of the writers and musicians who played them. Listening to this, I don’t know, it seems we’re happy.”

He added: “There’s no fucking around with this record. When it hits, it hits. It lifts you. It moves you. I love that about it.”

In May, the Bad Seeds shared part one of ‘The Making Of Wild God’ featuring Radiohead‘s Colin Greenwood. An official album trailer – which captured Greenwood recording a guest bass part – arrived the previous month.

Cave told fans earlier this year that the ‘Wild God’ album was “full of secrets”. He has also explained that the LP isn’t “set through a lens of loss” unlike its predecessors Skeleton Tree’ (2016) and ‘Ghosteen’ (2019). Those two albums dealt with the grief Cave experienced following the death of his 15-year-old son, Arthur, in 2015.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are set to embark on a European, UK and Ireland tour later this year in support of ‘Wild God’. When announcing the dates, Cave said: “The record just feels like it was made for the stage.” Find any remaining tickets (UK/Ireland) here.
