Nick Cave has announced that Grinderman are ‘over’ at a festival appearance in Australia.
The frontman told the crowd the news as the band closed their set at the the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria this weekend.
Cave said: That's it for Grinderman. It's over.
He added: "See you all in another ten years when we'll be even older and uglier."
Grinderman are a side-project of Cave's and features three members of his band The Bad Seeds.
The band began in 2006 and released two albums their self-titled debut in 2007 and ‘Grinderman 2’, in 2010.
Back in 2010 Cave discussed plans to release a new ‘Bad Seeds’ album, he said: 'I have the starting date for the next record and that's when I go into the office and start it. I'm not doing that until I've finished the Grinderman tour, which is amazing. The band is something else.'
