NEW ORDER formed in 1980 out of the ashes of the now legendary Manchester band Joy Division. After the tragic death of singer Ian Curtis, the remaining members chose to continue as NEW ORDER, with guitarist Bernard Sumner taking over as vocalist, Stephen Morris on drums, Peter Hook on bass and the new addition of Gillian Gilbert on keyboards and guitar.
Their potent mix of pop, rock, dance and electronics quickly brought worldwide commercial success and universal critical acclaim. Their eight studio albums, from ‘Movement’ in 1981 through to ‘Waiting For The Sirens Call’ in 2005, and hit singles Temptation, Bizarre Love Triangle, True Faith, Regret, Crystal, and of course the biggest selling dance record of all time...Blue Monday, all proved highly influential and they were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. NEW ORDER's well documented history was immortalised in film with ’24 Hour Party People’, and their ownership of world-famous Manchester nightclub, The Hacienda, only enhanced their credibility and iconic status.
