Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds has just shared its plans for a North American tour in support of its newest album, Ghosteen.

The news was announced on Tuesday morning through the band’s official website. The highly anticipated trek will see Nick Cave, the Australian post-punk frontman, along with his backing band, perform in 18 different cities across the continent.

Spanning throughout the fall, the tour is scheduled to kick off on Sept. 16 in Minneapolis, Minn., before concluding a month later in Vancouver on Oct. 17.

While American singer/songwriter Weyes Blood will serve as the special opening act for seven of the Bad Seeds’ select U.S. shows, an opener is yet to be been confirmed for any of the three Canadian shows.

Cave, 62, is best known for songs such as Red Right Hand and The Weeping Song. Along with the Bad Seeds, he has released 17 studio albums overall.

Ghosteen is now available physically and through all major streaming platforms.
