he long-out-of-print album by The Sisterhood — the project born out of Andrew Eldritch’s feud with ex-Sisters of Mercy bandmates Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams — will be reissued on CD, cassette and vinyl for the first time in decades, and released digitally for the first time ever. Details right here.
For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present The Sisters of Mercy’s long-out-of-print concert film “Wake,” recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 18, 1985 — the final concert by the lineup that included Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams, who went on to form The Mission.
The Mission is following up last year’s reunion album The Brightest Light with a brand-new EP that will feature four new songs that each are sung by a different member of the band — plus, for those who purchase the digital version, a bonus fifth track in the form of a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.”
With their first new album in six years — and first to feature original band members Wayne Hussey, Simon Hinkler and Craig Adams since 1990 — due out next week, The Mission has begun streaming the full 12-track The Brightest Light via Spotify. Here, you can check out the full album.
We’re still more than a month out from the release of The Mission’s The Brightest Light, but the band this week premiered the first full track off the record: “Drag,” a song Wayne Hussey describes as a “throwaway” blues rocker that was so fun to play that he ended up finding a place or it on the album.
