New Order Confirm They Are Working On New Material

New Order frontman Bernard Sumner confirmed the band are now working on new material and plan to record it soon.

In an interview with the Rolling Stone on their current US tour, Sumner said: "We're coming out in small bursts and writing in small bursts at home – so we’re constantly here whether you like us or not, we’re here to stay". 

He describes the band's most recent work as more electronic- and synthesizer-based, which they were excited to return to after their more recent guitar-heavy material. 

"That's not to say there won't be enough space on the album for enough cool guitar tracks if someone's got them," Sumner says. "I think New Order's a hybrid band and will always remain so."

This new material might happen as an album but maybe also as a series of EP's and it would be the first NEW ORDER release without bassist Peter Hook who left the band in 2007.

In the meantime enjoy the band's recent Coachella performance of 1985's "Perfect Kiss" below.
