Cult favorite and chronic dark suit wearer Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have added a Dallas show to their North American tour in October.

The band head to The Bomb Factory on October 23, two days after kicking off their run in Los Angeles. It's one of 10 dates on the tour that also heads to Washington DC, Brooklyn, Toronto, Brazil, Argentina, and Chile.

The last time the Australian singer-songwriter came through Dallas was in 2013, when he and the Bad Seeds performed at McFarlin Auditorium.

One of the most intense and exciting live acts on the planet, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds headlined festivals across Europe this summer, before crossing continents to Latin and North America.

For one night only in April of this year, they shared a show from their celebrated 2017 world tour on cinema screens worldwide.

The release of a special EP of audio from that extraordinary film, Distant Sky – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Live In Copenhagen, will be available on Digital and 12-inch vinyl from September 28.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' touring line-up features Nick Cave (vocals, piano), Warren Ellis (piano, keyboards, violin, tenor guitar), Martyn Casey (bass), Jim Sclavunos (vibraphone, percussion, piano, drums), George Vjestica (guitar), and Larry Mullins (keyboards, piano).

Cave's longtime pianist Conway Savage died in early September after two years battling a brain tumor.

Pre-sale tickets are available from 10 am local time Tuesday September 18 to Thursday September 20.
