Nick Cave and Warren Ellis Donate $500,000 For Bushfire Relief

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have pledged half a million bucks to the Australian bushfire relief efforts.

The founding members of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds made the announcement on Instagram.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by the fires destroying our beloved Australia,” the post said. “We are pledging $500,000 to some of the many organisations carrying out selfless and courageous work aiding and supporting communities and wildlife who have been hit by this overwhelming devastation. We urge everyone to do whatever they can to help.

“With love to Australia, Nick Cave, Warren Ellis and families.”

Cave and Ellis are both born in the Australian state of Victoria, which has been badly affected by the fires.

They have not made mention of the specific recipients of the generous donation.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released their seventeenth album Ghosteen in November 2019. They made the entire album available to anyone on YouTube.

European fans will have a chance to check the band out in April and May this year. Cave is also doing an “in conversation” eight-date European tour beginning January 20, but if you don’t have tickets yet, you’re out of luck.
