Grinderman New Single – Out August 31st 2010

"Heathen Child"
HERE COME THE WOLFMAN
"Heathen Child", the new single from the band Grinderman, will be released on August 31st. The premiere offering from their new studio album Grinderman 2, Heathen Child will be released through Anti- with the complete album following on September 14.
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.

Grinderman are 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.
