Skeleton Tree charted at number 1 in 8 countries with a further 11 Top 5s and numerous Top 20 positions. The album gained the band their highest ever position in the UK: 2 (OCC) and US: 27 (Billboard), and has recently been certified Silver in the UK (BPI). Recently nominated for a BRIT Award (2017) in the Best International Group category, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds remain one of the most critically acclaimed acts working today and have sold over 5 million albums worldwide. Their influence has been profound and far-reaching and they are one of the most powerful and exciting live acts in the world.
