Watch Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds perform ‘Rings Of Saturn’ live on Colbert

Last night, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert as the band continue their tour of north America.

The group performed track ‘Rings of Saturn’, a standout from last year’s emotionally charged album Skeleton Tree.

The record, which was written and recorded in the wake of the tragic death of Cave’s teenage son, channels the beauty the Australian’s ability to transmit his creative spirit despite being submerged in the “absolute chaos” that surrounded him and his family.
