Ben’s mysterious allusions to sisters secret creative time

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.

This is the third time I’ve come to heartland, ready to be a detached voyeur after a hint from Ben on some form of social media.

Unknown location. Something creative. Rigs. Provocative secrecy.

C’mon, people, SPECULATE already. I want to watch.

I saw that too. I am actively trying not to speculate. Sorry.
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.

Okay sure no problem, though I haven't seen the hints but hey.

I speculate that the upcoming tour will be a Sisters On Ice extravanganza cos they all love Rick Wakeman.

My heart’s been broken too many times, so this is the best case scenario, right?

Best case? Depends if you love On Ice Extravaganzas I suppose. The vision of them all sliding around hopelessly whilst trying to belt out the tunes becomes more glorious every time I visualise it, so yeah, best case it is! ;D

For those of us who don't have a clue which social media account you're talking about (I found his twitter and it just seems to be retweets), do you have a link?

Here you go:

Instagram

Facebook

I'm going with tour rehearsals (Ben is busy touring with Nathan Gray for a big chunk of Feb so won't be available to rehearse then) and maybe polishing up those new songs for the tour if you really want me to be optimistic. :lol:

I don't want to false alarm you, but in the next video posted from Ben (high-fives with the dog), you can listen in the background Dr.Avalanche and Dylan play something that it is not so familiar and new to the ear ;D :wink:

It's not an unknown location, it's most likely (wooden panels) Trix where they rehearsed (and more?) a lot last year :D

And Andrew has apparently at least updated the live news page a bit, a sign of life :von:

Ben's latest instagram teaser:

"Song writing for studio, Song revision for tour"

I think Diamond Black are still recording and he's touring with Nathan Gray in March, so I assume that's what he meant.

yeah, that's what i thought too, makes the most sense (Nathan Gray tour is last 2 weeks of Feb i think) - and i've just looked and there's now recording news on Diamond Black's page so it's that then :D
