Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announce festival appearances for 2009

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announce the first of a string of summer festival appearances.

The band, featuring Ed Kuepper on guitar, will headline at German festivals Southside (Neuhausen Ob Eck) and Hurricane (Scheesel) in June, Scotland’s T in the Park on 10th July and Oxegen Festival in Ireland on 11th July.

Kuepper, formally of Australian bands The Saints and Laughing Clowns, completes the current Bad Seeds live line up of Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Thomas Wydler, Jim Sclavunos and Conway Savage.

Kuepper has been, and continues to be, a significant influence on contemporary Australian music. He formed the original version of the proto punk band The Saints in 1973 whilst in high school and when the original Saints split he formed what, in the eyes of many, was an even bolder enterprise, Laughing Clowns.

The Clowns broke up in 1984 and Kuepper launched a prolific solo career which has seen the release of more than 20 albums and several film and soundtrack projects. His latest studio recording was ‘Jean Lee and the Yellow Dog’ in 2007

This full schedule of festival dates promises to include some of the best and most exciting festivals that Europe and the British Isles have to offer. These festival dates mark the band’s first European appearances since their sold-out London Troxy shows in November 2008. More details will announced very soon.
