New single from Grinderman

'Heathen Child' the new single from the band Grinderman, will be released on 'Heathen Child'. The premiere offering from their new studio album Grinderman 2, 'Heathen Child' will be released through Mute with the complete album following on 13th September.

The song 'Heathen Child' cuts a deep seductively heavy groove interjected with dazzling squalls of saw-tooth distortion. It abounds in lyrical imagery at turns lascivious, paranoid, philosophic, absurd and flat out abusive. The video, vividly directed by long-time collaborator John Hillcoat, brings the ominous sensuality and surreal malevolence of the lyrics to life; but it also demonstrates clear evidence of the fun and imagination Grinderman have working together.

Grindermanare Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos. They have forged a distinctly different way of working together. Grinderman have cast off musical baggage, shrugged off accepted wisdom, and tested pre-conceptions about who they are as musicians. Grinderman is no hobby, no dalliance, and clearly no one-off: it is a crucible, an experimental workshop, a disciplined orgy of ideas and action. Grinderman is the one-of-a-kind band Nick, Warren, Martyn and Jim have waited all their life to be, and only now at this moment in time can have become. See them in action at these tour dates:
