Nick Cave launches 'Bad Seed TeeVee', streaming gigs, videos and rarities 24 hours a day

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have today (April 24) launched Bad Seed TeeVee, a new 24/7 stream of rare and unseen footage from the band’s archives.

Starting today, the stream will be on continuously on YouTube “for the foreseeable”.

The channel will broadcast footage that includes promo videos, interviews, live footage, outtakes and other exclusive unseen footage from the band’s archives that will be played on a continuous random shuffle.

Speaking of the project, Cave said: “It’s 10.30 Wednesday evening, and if the world wasn’t in lockdown, I’d be onstage in Toulouse, France singing my heart out with The Bad Seeds. But I’m not. I’m doing the next best thing—sitting at home watching Bad Seed TeeVee. Pure non-stop joy!”

Tune into Bad Seed TeeVee below.

Last week, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds announced rescheduled dates for their UK and European tour in support of new album ‘Ghosteen’.

Giving ‘Ghosteen’ a five-star review, NME wrote: “Whatever form grief takes, Cave encourages us to find beauty in pain, even when it might be difficult to do so. These are probably the most painful songs Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have ever recorded, but they’re also the most beautiful: it is a work of extraordinary, unsettling scope.”
