Grinderman 2 Debuts In American Top 40

American audiences appear to be once again hungering for some dangerous primordial rock and roll. How else to explain the fervor greeting the recent release of Grinderman 2 which, in its first week out, landed in the Top 40 making it the highest charting work from visionary crooner Nick Cave. The album features Cave working alongside longtime cohorts Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos. It is rock and roll from grown men who have lived - a work of sublime sonic adventurousness.

Grinderman will be taking their electrifying live show on the road when they embark on a North American tour this fall beginning November 11th.

Critical Acclaim For Grinderman 2:

"On 2, Grinderman come off like drifters who will drink your liquor cabinet dry, knock you unconscious and bury your family alive. Thing is, you'll be okay with it. - Alternative Press

"So much adrenaline, nastiness, and rock & roll sleaze that it stands in its own league and kicks serious ass." - All Music Guide

"His skill at crafting work drenched with the blood and tears of human flaws remains unparalleled, and makes "Grinderman 2" an essential rock and roll document." - Los Angeles Times

"On "Grinderman 2," Nick Cave explores the male psyche with force and humor." - New Yorker

"Plenty great...who else but Cave could make "I want to stick my fingers in your biscuit jar" sound downright romantic?" - Penthouse

"Late middle age has never sounded so thrilling." - Spin

"Grinderman 2 is gnarled and disturbed. Which makes for an awfully fun listen." - Washington Post
