Grinderman Are Breaking Up - Nick Cave Confirms!

13 December 2011

Grinderman front man Nick Cave has confirmed his band is calling it quits for the time being, announcing the break up at the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria over the weekend.

"That's it for Grinderman. It's over," Cave said.

He left the door open for a possible reunion down the track however, continuing with: "See you all in another 10 years when we'll be even older and uglier."

The band walked off stage to little fanfare, leaving many among the 12,000-strong crowd questioning if Cave was serious or playing a festival prank.

Grinderman formed in 2006 and featured Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos alongside Cave.

The quartet released their self-titled debut in 2007 and a follow up record Grinderman 2, in 2010. They were nominated for three 2011 ARIA Awards, including Best Group and Album Of The Year.

Earlier this year Cave said that Grinderman and his main band Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds could exist alongside each other indefinitely... but perhaps he has decided now to do away with one for the sake of the other?

The set at Meredith Music Festival was the last of Grinderman's touring commitments, following a recent run of Australian shows, including Homebake festival.
