New NEW ORDER for those of you who are bothered about these things, opinions are divided around here. Seems that, yesterday the band played a brand new song during their show at Lollapalooza in Chile. Word is the new piece is entitled Drop The Guitar and it actually marks the first new full length material in nine years. The last more or less fresh music we got from the Manchester band was Lost Sirens, an EP featuring left-over material from 2005′s Waiting For The Sirens’ Call.
NEW ORDER have hinted at the possibility of recording a new album or at least a series of EPs, this is the first time we’ve heard anything. The first new material without bassist Peter Hook who left the band in 2007. You can watch fan footage of the song’s performance below, not the greatest in terms of sound and visuals (and I guess someone will have it pulled soon, but hey…. if you care, then here you go…)
More of this kind of thing later….
