Chris Catalyst wants to release new Sisters material

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Ben's take on the likelihood of recorded new material can be read two thirds of the way down this : http://hardrockhaven.net/online/2014/07 ... -by-night/

I briefly met Ben on Tuesday night and said to him that I just had to ask them to record. Anything - doesn't matter what, just record.

I then apologized saying, "you must get that all the time. I'm sure you're fed up with people asking."

His reply was "Not at all. We're fed up asking him (Andrew)."

It was a throw away comment, not an Official Position Statement, but there you go.

Isn't it the case that they record quite a lot, it's just that Eldritch won't actually release any of it?

BTW The stuff about recording costs is a nonsense; Eldo has his own studio.

Does he have an actual studio (treated rooms, high-end equipment, someone who knows how to use it all, etc.) or does he just have a Pro Tools rig of the sort described on the website? It's quite possible to do near-professional quality recordings in a "prosumer" home studio set-up, but I don't think anything on par with Floodland or Vision Thing, in terms of production, is really possible in such an environment. Those albums are both immaculately recorded.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

You made it up right now or it has any ground? i mean, it sounds reaslonable and possible, but it never came up here.
btw. i did some extremely quick research, following words that AE has other source of income, it turned up that he's not even lead his own band (scroll down). :lol:
plus, some extra information for stalkers (but i guess that they already came up into this).

Do they though? I know it says that somewhere on the website that hasn't been updated since the 15th century, but when do they have the opportunity? Surely not on tour. And when they're not on tour they're in different locations, with Chris and Ben having other band commitments and Von translating Renaissance Italian literature.
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.

The wonders of information technology make such things possible. I don't know how much they actually do record, but they could easily write and record parts and collaboratively send the files to each other.

here we go again: step one: how to record and release. step two to come: how to release and distribute.

The cover of this mag suggests there may be a new album on the horizon.

i haven't read the article but i suspect thats a case of a journalist snatching one of eldritch's throwaway/psuedo bragging/bullshit lines from an interview and turning it into a sensationalist headline because he knows sisters fans will lap it up

various band members have said a few times recently that they record stuff, but don't do anything with it

having said that, i'd love to be wrong 8)

I have known it for 2 or 3 weeks because a journalist of Vive Le Rock aksd me about pictures on the recent tour (he wrote me a private message on fb). So I find it interesting why they put such an old pic on the cover. So I'm really curious to see what the issue will include!!!
