Trump win could mean we get a new Sisters of Mercy LP


There are a lot of people looking for silver linings today, and here’s a possible one. Sisters of Mercy frontman Andrew Eldritch said in an interview earlier this year that if Donald Trump got elected, he’d make a new album…which would be the band’s first in over 25 years. Here’s what he told Team Rock:

What is happening in America is an ever more bizarre circus, and the population doesn’t seem to realize just how much it’s being taken for a ride. I can tell you one thing: If Donald Trump actually does become President, that will be reason enough for me to release another album. I don’t think I could keep quiet if that happened.

The last Sisters of Mercy record was 1990’s Vision Thing. Apart from a short breakup in the early ’90s, Eldritch and the band (including drum machine Doktor Avalanche) have continued to play live and play new songs, just no new album. Earlier in the same interview he said, “The main problem with a new album is that I don’t want to blackmail my band into doing it for free. It takes a lot of work and effort, and in this day and age music unfortunately no longer seems to have any value.”

Andrew, please follow through! We want more (and we need all the love we can get). Listen to some classic Sisters of Mercy below.
