The Sisters Of Mercy have been out on tour and are about to wrap things up later this month with a string of dates in the U.K.  Though the band's last album was released back in 1990, over the years they've performed some new material at their shows.  As it turns out, it looks like fans may just get a brand new Sisters record in the future if Andrew Eldritch keeps his promise.

In an interview with Team Rock back in June, Eldritch gave many reasons NOT to make an album -- time, effort, money, society's devaluation of music, and discord between the band and their (now ex) record label.  However near the end of that same interview the topic of discussion turned to the U.S. presidential election and Eldritch dropped this bomb:

"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."

Your move, Andrew!

Read the full interview in Team Rock and enjoy some vintage footage of The Sisters Of Mercy along with an awkward interview from 1985 below:
