“The Sick Bag Song chronicles Nick Cave’s 2014 tour of North America with The Bad Seeds. The account of this 22-city journey began life scribbled on airline sick bags and grew into a restless full-length epic, seeking out the roots of inspiration, love and meaning.”

The first edition of The Sick Bag Song, a hardback version, will be projectiled on 8 April with a limited edition to follow on 4 June. The first edition includes a download of Cave reading the book, with the limited edition containing a signed sick bag and a pressing of Cave’s reading on white vinyl.
