But Genevieve

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.

The rumour did come from a reliable source - i.e. not Von - and at least two of us heard it separately, so it does seem to be a little better than the usual.

This was in Bristol as well, when it must have been obvious that the post-UK dates were at least at risk.

For the record, I'd love to see ANYTHING new from the sisters. If there was a kickstart with goodies, etc, I'd happily pay north of €100 for an album release.

All they'd need to sweeten the deal would be a teeshirt and poster and I'm there.

And I'd bet there's a lot of me out there.

Outwith Bristol I asked much closer to source 😉

Having bought the Nephilim's Prophecy single I can tell you, wasteful as it might be, it's entirely possible to produce a 7" single with nothing pressed on the b-side.

... :eek: :lol: ... so there is worse in the world than I had expected ... :lol: ... while of course there was a Long Train Flexi back in the days ...

However IMHO, the so far untitled instrumental would make a lovely b-side to some Genevieve single ... ;D ...

Yeah, I'd be more than happy with that.
But the eternal optimist in me likes to hope they'll pick one of the other new tracks for which they've posted lyrics on the site.

I wouldn't mind a treat with a Saxophone oriented instrumental like in Dominion/Μother Russia single, that we never heard before ;D ;D :notworthy:

If they can bring back The X-Files, they can release new Sisters material.

Depends on the slogan though... "The Truth Is Out There" or "Trust No-Von"

Torn between hope and the deep seated cynicism that experience of all matters Sisters has brought for approaching 30yrs, and yet I dutifully turn up like the 'sad act' my sons say :lol:

'Show Me' would have been a better choice though IMHO.

'Show Me' deserves it's own 12'' single release! we even have the artwork for the cover somewhere around in the forum ;D :innocent:

Did anyone who initially heard this rumor also happen to hear anthing about possible labels, etc? I’m sure the band could record the song(s) themselves for little or no money, but pressing and distribution is a different story.
I’m sorry, but the very idea of a actual new Sisters release, possibly as early as next month, is just so damn exciting I can’t stop thinking about it. 😅

Adding 2+2 together and possibly getting 5, Cadiz Music would seem a good possibility, given they are producing the Gift reissue.
Obviously pure unfounded speculation on my part.

Good point. But is there any real need for physical product in 2020?
Bandcamp is there & used by many to shift digital copies of material.
& chances of getting pressing capacity when all the factories want to do is run off another 50k copies of Brothers In Arms is pretty remote anyway.
Cheers.

I'm just glad there's enough bands like NMA, Levellers and even t'Mish who still manage to produce and put out physical product for sad old duffers like me :lol:

I don't remember anything about labels, but Merciful Release with some kind of licensing/distribution deal would surely work?
