Cave took to his Red Hand Files newsletter to make the announcement; beyond its title no further details are known at the time of writing.

Alongside the news, Cave also shared how much he missed live gigs:

“There is a terrible yearning and a feeling of a life being half-lived. I miss the thrill of stepping onto the stage, the rush of the performance … the loss of self, the physicalness of it all, the feeding frenzy of communal love.”

Carnage follows the release of Cave’s solo piano show Idiot Prayer as a live album late last year, via Bad Seeds Ltd.
