New Order Plan New Material

(Gibson) New Order will begin work on new material in early 2013, although probably not with original bass player Peter Hook, who is still engaged in a legal battle with the band over the use of the name.

New Order vocalist/guitarist Bernard Sumner tells BBC 6Music that the band will meet after Christmas to discuss exactly what for their new material might take. "We've not decided yet, but from what we've seen from traveling around the world is that people want to hear some new stuff," Sumner says. "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."

The current New Order line-up includes original keyboard player Gillian Gilbert (who left the band in 2001 and rejoined last year) and bass player Tom Chapman from Sumner's recent project Bad Lieutenant. more on this story
