NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS WIN "ALBUM OF THE YEAR" AT THE PRESTIGIOUS MOJO AWARDS

Limited Edition Book on the Song "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" In Stores July 8

North American Tour - the First in Five Years - Kicks off Sept 16 in San Diego CA

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds were awarded the Best Album award at the 2008 MOJO Honors ceremony this week in London. MOJO readers voted for the band's 2008 release DIG, LAZARUS, DIG!!! as best album from a shortlist of strong contenders including the Arctic Monkeys, Duffy, Radiohead, and Alison Krauss & Robert Plant.

Additionally, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are set to release their DIG, LAZARUS, DIG!!! book on July 8th. The 46-page hard back four inch square book contains exclusive handwritten lyrics and notes by Nick Cave, photos and illustrations, a three inch CD of the single 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!', plus an interview with Nick Cave and British artists Tim Noble And Sue Webster who created the cover art for the album, DIG, LAZARUS, DIG!!!.

Nick Cave writes:

"The little book is about the making of the song 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!' It is a curiosity that deals with the preparation and final glorious outcome of a project that began on the back of an envelope, a literal 'scrap' of an idea and ended up evolving into a genuine cultural icon and classic rock 'n' roll song, due to the collaborative efforts of myself, The Bad Seeds and Brit artists Sue Webster and Tim Noble. The song, which is a comic re-imagining of the Lazarus myth (placing the recently 'risen' Lazarus in 70's New York City) is accompanied by an eight foot square light sculpture, employing over 750 light bulbs, built by Webster and Noble. This little book documents the journey of this mammoth collaboration. Dig it!!!"

The book will be available from Amazon.com, Borders and independent music retailers and bookstores nationwide.

In other Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds news, the band will follow their summer European festival dates with their first North American tour in five years.
