Last month Nick Cave pulled the plug on Grinderman — at least for the foreseeable future — but as a final adieu, the band will release a remix album this March, reconfiguring tracks from 2010's Grinderman 2 with contributions from Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, Queens of the Stone Ages' Josh Homme, The National's Matt Berninger, UNKLE, Andy Weatherall, The Horrors' Faris Badwan's side project Cat's Eyes, A Place To Bury Strangers and more.
Grinderman 2 RMX drops internationally on Mute UK on March 12 and via ANTI- in the States on March 13.
Cave announced the present end of Grinderman at the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria Australia in mid-December, adding cryptically, "See you all in another 10 years when we'll be even older and uglier."
