Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy DivisionNew Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most acclaimed bands of the 1980s; embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture many years in advance of its contemporaries, the group’s pioneering fusion of new wave aesthetics and dance music successfully bridged the gap between the two worlds, creating a distinctively thoughtful and oblique brand of synth pop appealing equally to the mind, body, and soul. The band’s first releases were cold and sometimes abrasive as they struggled to come to grips with Ian Curtis‘ death. As their confidence and willingness to explore new sounds grew, their records became more commercial. Singles like 1983’s “Blue Monday” and 1985’s “The Perfect Kiss” established them as hit makers, while albums like 1985’s Low-Life often showed off a melancholier, song-based sound. 1989’s Technique was the band’s high point commercially, and many would say artistically, as they seamlessly fused club culture and song craft. After this, the band’s attention began to split as members pursued other projects and only occasionally reconvened for New Order recordings, including for 1993’s Republic. As the group continued to work sporadically, they were set on a different course when founding bassist Peter Hook quit in 2006. After shuffling the line up a little the band continued to perform as a live act that occasionally released albums like 2015’s Music Complete and singles such as 2020’s “Be a Rebel.” Through it all, their influence never waned, and bands as diverse as Galaxies 500the Chemical Brothers, and the Killers looked to their sound and songs for inspiration.

New Order‘s origins officially date back to mid-1976, when guitarist Bernard Sumner (formerly Albrecht) and bassist Peter Hook announced their intentions to form a band of their own. Recruiting singer Ian Curtis and drummer Stephen Morris, they eventually settled on the name Joy Division, and in 1979 issued their landmark debut LP, Unknown Pleasures.
