New Order announce a full and final settlement with former bassist Peter Hook

New Order announce that today, a full and final settlement has been reached in the long running disputes with their former bassist Peter Hook. 

The disputes were based upon Hook's use of various New Order and Joy Division assets on merchandising and in the promotion of shows by his new band, and the amount of money he receives from the use of the name New Order by his former colleagues since 2011. 
The Joy Division and New Order names mean a great deal to so many of the fans, and the band felt it important to protect the legacy. 

With these issues now dealt with, Bernard, Stephen and Gillian can continue to do what they do best, make music and perform live.


Mark Reeder releases new album Mauerstadt

Mauerstadt means walled city and Berlin was the original mauerstadt. Berlin is also the home and workplace of Mark Reeder. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Berlins notorious wall was seen as the ultimate symbol of division and intolerance. Yet within that wall, a creative force existed which brought many artistic people together. This album draws attention to the subject of collaboration, not division.

Manchester International Festival NO/JD Pop-up Shop



To coincide with the Manchester International Festival events So It Goes and True Faith we have opened a New Order & Joy Division pop-up shop in Manchester Festival Square (Albert Square) open every day from noon.


True Faith - Manchester Art Gallery - Fri 30 June – Sun 3 September

Bringing together work by some of the world’s most notable artists, True Faith explores the ongoing significance and legacy of New Order and Joy Division through the wealth of visual art their music has inspired.

Curated by Matthew Higgs and Jon Savage with archivist Johan Kugelberg, True Faith is centred on four decades’ worth of extraordinary contemporary works from artists such as Julian Schnabel, Jeremy Deller, Liam Gillick, Mark Leckey, Glenn Brown and Slater B Bradley, all directly inspired by the two groups.

Also featuring Peter Saville’s seminal cover designs, plus performance films, music videos and posters from the likes of John Baldessari, Barbara Kruger, Lawrence Weiner, Jonathan Demme, Robert Longo, Raf Simons and Kathryn Bigelow, True Faith provides a unique perspective on these two most iconic and influential Manchester bands.
