Watch: A Place To Bury Strangers Share "And I’m Up" Video

New Order's Bernard Sumner: "I’d just like to make another album"

New Order frontman Bernard Sumner has revealed more on the reunited band’s plans to record a new album. In an interview with Billboard, Sumner talked about his hopes of adding a brand new album to the comeback trail.

"I'd just like to make another album," he explained. "I'm getting a creative itch that I need to scratch. Playing live is great, but it's not a creative thing, really. It's a reproductive thing. I'd quite like to make an electronic record, because we've not made one for quite a while really."

Sumner also gave his opinion on the bassist's recent announcement that he will tour the first two New Order albums with The Light in January next year, saying: "I think it sucks to be honest. We found out that he was touring 'Unknown Pleasures' through the press. He didn't tell us, which we thought was pretty low. It just seems like a real commercial thing to do."

"He seems to be doing it for the money," he added. "To me, Joy Division and New Order were never about that. I thought it was disrespectful to the rest of us. But I must admit that once he started doing it, we did think, 'What are we doing holding back with New Order?' So, in a way - if you'll excuse the pun - he showed us the light."

Empire Of The Sun's Peter Mayes: 'Our new album sounds amazing''

Empire Of The Sun's Peter Mayes has revealed the band are close to finishing work on their second album.

The producer spoke of his excitement about the band's second album. He revealed that after writing hundreds of new tracks, they now had a potential collection of tunes to serve as a follow up to their debut, Walking On A Dream.

"We've been working on the new Empire Of The Sun record since last November and I am so excited about that right now," the producer told in an interview. "We're getting towards the end of that now. It is sounding amazing. It's really big."

He also added: "We need a week to just digest it all. We've written over a hundred songs. We do right now have a great bunch of songs that could easily make up a really strong record."

"One of the tricks with Empire is to have a certain sense of timelessness. Not nostalgia for the sake of it, but a certain musicality," he said. "Those sort of feelings go beautifully with Nick's voice. It can be really futuristic, it can be anything. It's not just a dubstep record that's going to be cool for three months."

Empire Of The Sun released Walking On A Dream in 2008. It reaches double platinum in Australia and gold status in the UK.
