The “dark prince of rock” and his group will play a series of U.K. dates beginning November 3, and proceed through Germany, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Greece through early December.

The double album Abattoir Blues / The Lyre Of Orpheus was released Europe in September and it due out momentarily in the States. It features Cave along with Bad Seeds Mick Harvey, Thomas Wydler, Martyn Casey, Conway Savage, Jim Sclavunos, Warren Ellis and James Johnston.

Founding member Bargeld left the group earlier this year to concentrate on his work with Einsturzende Neubauten and other projects. Despite the loss, the Seeds have moved on.

“In many ways, I think it revitalized the Bad Seeds because we were forced to do things differently,” Cave told Australia’s Daily Telegraph in a recent interview.

Prior to the tour, Cave is spending some time in his native Australia working on “The Proposition,” a $20 million film starring Guy Pearce and directed by John Hillcoat. Cave wrote the screenplay and is composing the score on-site.
