New Order plan to go into the studio next year to record their first album since 2005’s ‘Waiting For The Sirens Call’.
Speaking to Mixmag ahead of their headline set at last weekend’s Bestival, the band said they’d like to go into the studio next year and record an electronic synth record.
Lead singer, Bernard Sumner said, “We’ve not had time to do it this year as we’ve played so many gigs but next year we’re not going to play so many, so we’ll do it then.”
Sumner then went on to say, “I think I’d like to make an electronic synth album as the last few that I’ve done have been guitar albums.”
The band, who reformed last year without former bassist and founding member Peter Hook, have had a busy summer including shows at Sonar in Barcelona, Bestival, last weekend’s Festival No 6 as well as their very own headline tour.
