Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have shared a new trailer for their upcoming album Wild God – check it out below.

Wild God was announced last month with its title track, and will land on August 30. It will be the band’s 18th studio album.

Speaking of the album, Cave said: “I hope the album has the effect on listeners that it’s had on me,” Cave says. “It bursts out of the speaker, and I get swept up with it. It’s a complicated record, but it’s also deeply and joyously infectious.

“There is never a masterplan when we make a record. The records rather reflect back the emotional state of the writers and musicians who played them. Listening to this, I don’t know, it seems we’re happy.”

Watch the album trailer, which sees the band recording Wild God at Miraval Studios in Provence, below.

Later this year, the band will head out on a huge UK and European tour behind the new album. In late September, the band will begin their tour in Oberhausen, Germany, with the gigs stretching through Europe before arriving in the UK with a Leeds gig on November 2.

Support in mainland Europe will come from Dry Cleaning and The Murder Capital, with Black Country, New Road supporting in the UK, Dublin and Paris.
