Bernard Sumner has confirmed New Order will begin working on fresh material in the new year.
The band reformed without their original bass player Peter Hook last year initially for two benefit gigs, but have since embarked on a series of full UK tours and festival appearances during the course of 2012.
And now Sumner has told BBC 6Music the reunion will continue into 2013, when a new album is likely to join the party. “We finish touring at the end of October and then we’ve got November off,” he said. “After Christmas, we’re going to have a meeting about writing some new stuff.”
“We’ve not decided yet, but from what we’ve seen from traveling around the world is that people want to hear some new stuff. Speaking to journalists and speaking to fans, they seem to really want to hear some new stuff. We won’t play live as much next year, maybe half the amount we’ve done this year, and we’ll write some new stuff.”Just Published:
