It howls, it’s grindingly beautiful, and it’s heading your way. The Sisters fun machine drives on through 2015, with a little new chrome and a lot of vintage attitude. It still comes from northern England, and it still sounds like supercharged industrial psychedelia.

The Sisters of Mercy will be playing one or two festivals in the summer, and a bijou concert tour in October. We have some old songs, some new songs, a few blinding lights and many smoke machines. People seem to like the colours. Or the energy. Or something.

Metal Hammer says “The Sisters Of Mercy are … a lean glittering groove machine for the new millennium.”

The Sisters Of Mercy are: Chris Catalyst – guitars, Ben Christo – guitars, Andrew Eldritch – vocals, Nurse – nurse to the Doktor, Doktor Avalanche – drums and bass, Chris Catalyst eats daleks, so he plays guitar. Ben Christo loves you, so he plays guitar. Andrew Eldritch would like to believe in redemption, so he sings very quietly. Nurse is the Right Hand Of God, and Doktor Avalanche is God.
