Following a wildly captivating – and completely sold out – North American tour in early 2013, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return to the U.S. in the summer of 2014 to take care of some unfinished business. Throughout this jaunt, the band will be bringing their fervent live show to familiar cities as well as municipalities that have yet to be graced (or confronted) with a Bad Seeds live experience. On Nov. 14, Nick Cave partnered with the Association of Alternative Newspapers (AAN) for a special invitation-only web press conference. During this conference, journalists from AAN-member publications were able to ask Nick questions about Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' upcoming tour, current & past albums and a variety of other subjects. Today, readers of AAN-member publications will receive priority access to a special ticket 24 hour pre-sale on November 19 for the newly announced 2014 dates. Along with the pre-sale, readers are also able to download "The Mercy Seat" and "Mermaids" from the forthcoming Live From KCRW album from A special Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds fan 24 hour ticket pre-sale including VIP packages will begin at 10 a.m. on November 20 via General on-sale will commence on November 22 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at the State Theatre Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.
