From the ashes of legendary band Joy Division, New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time.
Their 1981 debut ‘Movement’ was overshadowed by the sound of Joy Division; going forward the band combined post-punk with influences from New York’s club scene, the result was ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ in 1983. That same year the band released ‘Blue Monday’, which became the bestselling 12-inch single of all time, selling over 3 million copies worldwide.
New Order went on to release further albums ‘Low-Life’ (1985), ‘Brotherhood’ (1986), ‘Substance’ (1987) and ‘Technique’ (1989). Between several brief hiatuses and line-up alterations, they also released ‘Republic’ (1993), ‘Get Ready’ (2001) and ‘Waiting for the Sirens’ Call’ (2005).
Phil Cunningham joined the band in 2001, followed by Tom Chapman in 2011 to complete the current line-up alongside founder members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert.
The band released their critically acclaimed tenth studio album ‘Music Complete’ in 2015 featuring guest vocals from Iggy Pop, Brandon Flowers and Elly Jackson of La Roux.
New Order continue to perform live around the world, playing some of the biggest shows of their career to date, from headlining Manchester’s Heaton Park and London’s O2 in 2021, to a US arena tour with Pet Shop Boys in autumn 2022.
