Bad Lieutenant is the project formed in 2007 by New Order's Bernard Sumner (guitar, vocals) and Phil Cunningham (guitar), along with Jake Evans (guitar, vocals). Their debut, Never Cry Another Tear, was released last October (Original Signal Recordings) to critical acclaim, with one journalist writing that it was "...confident and solid, and a winning combination for the old NO'ers and newcomers." The band just announced that they will make their U.S. concert debut with four dates set for April - 4/16 - Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, 4/19 - Park West in Chicago, 4/21 - Webster Hall in New York, and a special appearance at the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival (4/17).
New Order, born from the ashes of the near-mythic English band Joy Division, was one of the most innovative and critically-acclaimed bands of the 1980s, embracing the electronic textures and dance rhythms of the underground club culture while maintaining a mysterious and distant image. The group's pioneering fusion of modern aesthetics and dance music successfully bridged the gap between the two worlds, creating a distinctively thoughtful and oblique brand of pop. Between 1981 and 2005, New Order released eight studio albums, sold millions of albums worldwide and amassed Gold and Platinum awards. In addition, the band's single "Blue Monday" bears the distinction of being the biggest-selling 12-inch of all time, having sold in excess of 3-million copies.
