Australian group Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will be playing in Israel for the first time in two decades.

Known for his dark lyrics and gothic-southern-blues sound, Cave will likely be playing songs from the group’s most recent album, 2016’s critically acclaimed, “Skeleton Tree.”

“Skeleton Tree” is the band’s first album released since Cave’s 15-year-old son died falling off of a cliff in Brighton in 2015. The album’s recording process was made into the documentary, “One More Time With Feeling.”

Rolling Stone Magazine awarded the band’s 16th album 4 out of 5 stars, and wrote of the track, “Anthrocene”: “Here is the dean of literary gothic song-craft, a master of wordplay, symbolism and irony, baring his soul like never before.”

Born in Victoria, Australia, Cave’s career began in Melbourne, where he helped form the post-punk band The Birthday Party in 1977.

On top of being seen as one of the progenitors of Gothic rock, Cave has also found time to be a successful screenwriter, actor, author, and composer of film scores- including the highly-praised score to “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert”, which he composed with fellow Bad Seed member Warren Ellis.

As originally reported by Ynet news, Cave has played in Israel three times, his most recent appearance in 1998. A date and time is not yet confirmed on Cave’s website.

According to Ynet, Cave and the Bad Seeds have attempted to perform for their fans in Israel multiple times since the 90’s, but due to scheduling conflicts this will be his first performance in the country in nearly 20 years.
