Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will bring everything they have created during their decades-long collaboration to EXIT and Petrovaradin Fortress on Friday, 8th July.

Cave wrote on Instagram that the new documentary captures their unique creative relationship as they “bring to life the songs from albums, Ghosteen and Carnage.” The documentary’s director is Andrew Dominik, and its premiere is expected later in the year. Deadline reports that the documentary was shot in London and Brighton in 2021 and that it will be a kind of sequel to “One More Time with Feeling,” which focused on the creation of the album “Skeleton Tree.”

This director also collaborated with Cave and Ellis on the 2007 western drama “The Assassination Of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” and the upcoming Marilyn Monroe biopic “Blonde.”

At the beginning of 2021, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis released a joint album, “Carnage,” consisting of eight songs that the two musicians wrote and recorded during the lockdown. This was the first project they released as a duo, although Cave and Ellis have been collaborating for almost 30 years, both as part of The Bad Seeds and making soundtracks. “Ghosteen” released in 2019, was Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ 17th studio album. This album completed a trilogy also including “Push the Sky Away” (2013) and “Skeleton Tree” (2016).

In October 2021, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released the long-awaited album “B-Sides & Rarities Part II” — a double release with 27 B-side singles and rare songs from 2006 to 2020. The compilation was made by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis and was released 16 years after the highly acclaimed first “B-Sides & Rarities” collection.

Yet more proof of their exceptional collaboration comes in the form of the recently released album “La Panthere des Neiges” (Snow Leopard), a soundtrack to the French nature documentary of the same name. Cave and Ellis have been making film music together since 2005, and they consider this soundtrack to be one of their most impressive film-related projects.
