Written, recorded, and completed during lockdown, CARNAGE is the first studio album from Nick Cave & Warren Ellis outside of the Bad Seeds and their many soundtrack collaborations.
The eight song project - developed amidst the downtime of a long, anxious, global emergency - showcases Cave & Ellisí typical sonic and lyrical adventurism and stands as a quintessential record for these uncertain times.
CARNAGE is shot through with moments of distilled beauty and resonating with an almost defiant sense of hope. In Cave's own words, it is "a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe."
