Their debut Movement (1981) was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division; going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene. The result was Power, Corruption & Lies (1983). “Blue Monday” then became the best-selling 12-inch single of all time, moving over 3 million copies worldwide.
New Order then released the albums Low-Life (1985), Brotherhood (1986), Substance (1987) and Technique (1989). Between several brief hiatuses and line-up alterations, Republic (1993), Get Ready (2001) and Waiting for the Sirens’ Call (2005) came out, before Peter Hook’s departure in 2007.
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.
The band have performed at prestigious festivals and venues such as Glastonbury, Coachella, Royal Albert Hall, Hollywood Bowl and Sydney Opera House.
Continuing to forge the future, they have recently released the lauded new single Be a Rebel.
