New Order Background
New Order took shape at the dawn of 1980, originated
by Peter Hook (vocals/bass); Stephen Morris (keyboards/synthesizers/drums/electronic drums); and Bernard Sumner (vocals/keyboards/guitars/synthesizers).
New Order branched out as an extension of the coveted Joy Division group. Joy Division split up after the tragic suicide of
Ian Curtis (vocalist). Eventually, Gillian Gilbert joined New Order's lineup on synthesizers, guitars and keyboards. By mashing
electronic dance music with post-punk, New Order assumed the role as one of the most progressive, inspirational and highly
praised groups to surface in the '80s. In the beginning the band was eclipsed by the legend and sound of Joy Division. But,
hanging out on the New York City club scene in the early '80s also exposed them to the electro, post-disco and Latin freestyle.
They ended up integrating hints of these styles into their efforts. Although the group's first efforts, "Ceremony" and "In
a Lonely Place," were considered melancholic, the band made a dramatic shift in direction with the tracks, "Everything's Gone
Green" and "Temptation." Following their first LP, Movement, Power, Corruption & Lies arrived in the spring of 1983. Low-Life
came two years later and actually featured photos of each member, straying away from the band's usual anonymity. In early
1986, the soundtrack for the popular Molly Ringwald film, Pretty in Pink, dropped and included New Order's "Shellshock." The
year 1986 also saw New Order's name in lights for the Festival of the Tenth Summer, leading a lineup that featured A Certain
Ratio, The Smiths and The Fall. Brotherhood yielded the track, "Bizarre Love Triangle," a coveted single among mainstream
pop fans. New Order's American breakthrough arrived in the form of Substance. The collection pierced the Top 40, with "True
Faith" leading the way. It landed at No. 32 on the U.S. pop charts. Then came the remixed "Blue Monday 1988" and Technique
in 1989. New Order contributed "World in Motion" to the 1990 English World Cup Soccer event and took a break to work on other
projects. They picked up where they left off in 1993 when they released Republic. The lead-off track from the album, "Regret,"
catapulted the band into its highest-charting position. After a major tour, New Order kept quite throughout the remainder
of the 1990s. The 2000 flick The Beach highlighted New Order's "Brutal," which served as New Order's first original effort
in years. Get Ready dropped a year later. Around this time, Gillian Gilbert exited the band to devote more time to raising
her and Stephen Morris' kids. Phil Cunningham (guitarist) joined the band to boost the lineup. To support the release of Get
Ready, the band toured and New Order cut Waiting for the Sirens' Call in 2005. In 2006, New Order split but two years later,
they hit the road again. Live at the London Troxy arrived in 2011. In 2012, New Order continued to hit the stages. They were
even part of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Their latest effort, Lost Sirens, came out in 2013.
