New album Nitzer Ebb on hold due to financial troubles
Some official news from the Nitzer Ebb camp leaked in. While the band completed the new release for quite some time, including artwork, the release has been postponed due to what the band calls "the financial situation" which "has slowed things down in many regards". If the band doesn't find a satisfactory [financial] solution with a label partner they'll self-release the material on their own label, "but again, that takes time, (and money), to set up properly" the band says.

Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy are working on doing a release of some sort of material in the meantime: "Maybe remixes, extra tracks or some such, while we finalise the details of the album release. At this point we have a lot of material to choose from. Regardless of the business bullshit, we think it’s a great Ebb album and we are very eager to get it out and start playing it live on tour."

I think Bon and Doug holding out for the best possible "deal" is still valid, but time is marching on and that ideal is becoming obsolete.

With that in mind, along with every other positive factor of being in full control vs externally signed, then finally deciding to set-up their own label for a worldwide operation is the best way forward.

Total Liberation vs bondage to the old model and its failing working methods.

It does reek of greed, in the age of Myspace it doesn't take much effort for small bands to self-release albums let alone name bands such as NE. All I can say is it better be worth the wait, Payroll was good but Promises on the NCIS soundtrack was very average and that is being generous. As to the Sisters I think most have written them off as perhaps the laziest band in history which I guess does earn them some notoriety. Surely a fourth Sisters studio album is unlikely and I daresay we'll see some live album or remix compilation when Andrew gets a bit hardup. Whilst on topic why did NE leave Mute Records? Maybe they wouldn't pay Doug's bar bill...

I think it's safe to assume that this "financial situation" they're supposedly having has more to do with them not being offered a big enough label deal than anything to do with not being able to self-release some CD's. It's not like either of them are dirt poor and their MySpace page has said for months that they're "taking offers". I have no doubt whatsoever that virtually every scene label has probably approached them by now, but Ebb isn't signing to anyone who doesn't offer them a big chunk of money upfront. Even Mute, their former mainstream home who just released 2 'best of' Ebb compilations a few years ago, doesn't seem interested.

This seems to be a common occurrence with bands who USED TO be big names years ago, decide to reunite, and think the industry is the same place as it was when they left. Case in point: Sisters Of Mercy who won't sign with anyone who doesn't offer them a $1-2 Million advance... which is exactly why they remain unsigned.
