New Order lead Barcelona’s Sónar Festival additions

New Order

New Order are heading up the new additions to the Barcelona leg of next year’s Sónar Festival.

You’ll also find Fatboy Slim, Skepta, John Grant and plenty more on the bill between June 16th-18th 2016. New Order will be there with their recent ‘Music Complete‘ album, of which our review reads:

“Given the decade which has elapsed between the two, the story here could quite easily have been the band themselves: about how Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook swapped literary blows in their respective autobiographies.”

“How Gillian Gilbert has returned after winning her fight against breast cancer, how surprised they were to find out that they’d split up by dint of Hook’s unilateral departure – or in fact any one of half a dozen other fracas, disputes, ‘torts and so on.”

“It isn’t though. Instead of saluting the fact that thirty-five years after they formed as a result of Ian Curtis‘ tragic suicide the highly dysfunctional New Order have managed simply to make their tenth album, the headline is that ‘Music Complete’ is not just worthy and erudite, but that it also marks a complete rebirth.”
