New album Nitzer Ebb on hold due to 'financial troubles'Posted on 08/04/09
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 itís a great Ebb album and we are very eager to get it out and start playing it live on tour."
Fans who want to get some NE CDs at dumping prices (with free shipping worldwide) should check here. And below is the track "Once You Say" featuring Martin Lee Gore from Depeche Mode.

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.

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...
