The tour will follow the release of their 18th studio album ‘Wild God’ on August 30.

Speaking about the upcoming tour on his website, Cave said: “I never think about how a record is going to go live, it never, ever occurs to me. The lyric writing process is way too hard to take ideas like that into consideration. But, when I listen to ‘Wild God’ now, I think we can really do something epic with these songs live. We’re really excited about that – the record just feels like it was made for the stage.”

Support at the show in Leeds will come from Black Country, New Road.
