Australian alternative rock icons Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will reveal their new album ”Skeleton Tree” with the worldwide screening debut of their feature film “One More Time With Feeling.” The film will be shown as an HD broadcast Saturday, Sept. 10, at 8 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St.

“One More Time With Feeling” will be shown in more than 650 theaters worldwide to coincide with the Sept. 9 release of “Skeleton Tree.” Originally a performance-based concept, the film delves into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the new album.

Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the album are interviews and footage shot by director Andrew Dominik (“Chopper,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” “Killing Them Softly”), accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination. Filmed in black-and-white and color, the result is stark and raw.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds was formed in Melbourne, Australia, in 1983 by lead singer Nick Cave, multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey and guitarist Blixa Bargeld. The band has featured international personnel throughout its career and presently consists of Cave, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis, bassist Martyn P. Casey and keyboardist Conway Savage (all from Australia); keyboard/percussion player Barry Adamson and guitarist George Vjestica (both from the United Kingdom); and drummers Thomas Wydler (Switzerland) and Jim Sclavunos (United States). The band has released 15 studio albums and completed numerous international tours.

The band’s 16th studio album, “Skeleton Tree” began its journey in late 2014 at Retreat Studios, Brighton, with further sessions at La Frette Studios, France, in autumn 2015. The album was mixed at AIR Studios, London in early 2016.
