Additionally, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are
set to release their Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!  book on July 8th. The 46-page hard back four inch square book contains
exclusive handwritten lyrics and notes by Nick Cave, photos and illustrations,
a three inch CD of the single ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’, plus an
interview with Nick Cave and British artists Tim Noble And Sue Webster who
created the cover art for the album.

 

Nick Cave writes:

 

“The
little book is about the making of the song ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’ It is a
curiosity that deals with the preparation and final glorious outcome of a
project that began on the back of an envelope, a literal ‘scrap’ of an idea and
ended up evolving into a genuine cultural icon and classic rock ‘n’ roll song,
due to the collaborative efforts of myself, The Bad Seeds and Brit artists Sue
Webster and Tim Noble. The song, which is a comic re-imagining of the Lazarus
myth (placing the recently ‘risen’ Lazarus in 70’s New York City) is
accompanied by an eight foot square light sculpture, employing over 750 light
bulbs, built by Webster and Noble. This little book documents the journey of
this mammoth collaboration. Dig it!!!”

 

The book will be available
from Amazon.com, Borders and independent music retailers and bookstores
nationwide.

 

In other Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds news,
the band will follow their summer European festival dates with their first North American tour in five
years.  A stop at the historic Hollywood
Bowl
in Los Angeles,
with opening acts Cat Power and Spiritualized, will kick off the long-awaited
tour in grand style.
