I need your help!

I interviewed The Sisters (Ben, Dylan, Dave) when they played in Malmö last week. The interview will be printed in a south Swedish morning paper this Thursday.
I asked Ben for press photos or some such, and he told me they had actually taken group photos just recently, and he would e-mail me some.
But now deadline is rapidly approaching, I haven’t recieved the pics, and so I need to get pictures elsewhere. I don’t want some old VT-era photo illustrating a new interview, I want a photo of the band today.
So, do any of you have a really good live pic of (preferably all of) the band, one that you would be okay with me using in the paper? You will of course get photo credit.
Thanks!

Ben is pretty good at replying on Facebook - I'd contact him there.

Thanks!
Ben and I are communicating, I just don’t want to pester him about it when he’s got so much on his mind. Deadline is today, but I’ll work something out. 😊

It is indeed, interesting to read. Yet, taking the past, I am far, far away from thinking about contemplating to hold my breath.

He's got the whole world in his hands.

But it's true that AE seems to enjoy this tour very much, and it's clear to see that he likes to play and go onstage, it's not only a daily job, not this time. We are not worthy!

Nice piece We are not worthy!

& a lot more promising in terms of new output in the pipeline.

Even if there isn't, with 10 new songs written, there's lots of scope for more live surprises perhaps.

This ^^
We don't need to wonder if they are productive now - they ARE productive now. If there will be releases or not, who knows, but Andrew is awake again after decades of hibernation.
I know we have all gone cynical and sceptical over the years and have heard many empty words of "always writing, recording, maybe releasing, some day, blah blah" but now it does feel like 97/98 again.

Wow. I put that interview through Google Translate and can only agree with others - haven't read something that optimistic in a long time. If ever, in fact.

Wow! So awesome to hear such positive things coming from the band!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

And this:

"I honestly think that Andrew likes this version of the band better than he did in any one before, says Ben. Or it's just about getting older, and looking at things differently. Whatever the reason, he wants things again that he has not wanted for a long time."

Whether there is an album or not the main thing is, whatever the reason, Andrew seems to be much happier, much more creative and engaged and that is wonderful to hear and that makes me happy that he's found that!


Our fearless leader! Very Happy We are not worthy!

Fantastic work Sir We are not worthy!

Two foot tall? Google-translate musta been looking at him through it's side mirror, whilst off its face on LSD (if you don't get that, you need to watch and listen to more Bill Hicks).

Thank you for all the kind words regarding the interview. Smile

I myself was a bit amazed by the positive things they were saying, and the casualness with which they said it. Daves more or less exact quote (I recorded the conversation on my phone) about recording new material, was "For us, writing and working on these new songs, for them to only be performed live... I mean, at some point they´ve got to be recorded, otherwise why are we doing it? It´s the next logical step."

Oh, and I also find out they do record demos of the new songs. Ben said that that hasn´t been the case before, at least not during his time in the band, but now they do.

They told me a wonderful story about presenting some of the new songs to Von.
They had a few instrumental demos that he hadn´t heard, so they brought him to the rehersal room to play them for him. They wanted the atmosphere to resemble a gig as much as possible, so they dimmed the lights, cranked up the volume, and played him the demos. He didn´t say much between the songs, so they didn´t know what he thought of them.
After the last song, he told them: "You´ve captured the sensibilities of the first album, and combined them with the power of the third album." He was very pleased, and so were they. Smile
