New Order Strongly Considering Making New Music

Written by Marc Zanotti on September 19, 2012

Stereoboard has reported that seminal 80s outfit New Order are toying with the idea of entering the studio and putting together a new record. The possibility of a new album, which, as noted by Diffuser, would be the first LP of original work from New Order since 2005’s Waiting for the Sirens Call, gathered momentum as the band experienced positive feedback during their extensive touring throughout this year.

When Elizabeth Alker of BBC Radio 6 recently caught up with New Order’s Bernard Sumner, the vocalist explained that the band is looking at the potential of recording new music during 2013 when New Order have less touring commitments.

“We finish touring at the end of October and then we’ve got November off,” Sumner told BBC 6 Music, according to Stereoboard. “After Christmas, we’re going to have a meeting about writing some new stuff. We’ve not decided yet, but from what we’ve seen from travelling around the world, people want to hear some new stuff. Speaking to journalists and speaking to fans, they seem to really want to hear some new stuff.”

“We won’t play live as much next year, maybe half the amount we’ve done this year, and we’ll write some new stuff,” Sumner added.

Should New Order decide to record another record it will still be some time before it is complete. In the more immediate future, former New Order and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook will release his autobiography Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division on October 1. Hook promises the book will be a no-holds barred look inside Joy Division and give fans a whole new understanding of the celebrated band.

“It’s very strange. Over the years Joy Division has become a huge part of music culture. A lot of people think they know what happened. But they don’t”, Hook said.
