New Order Waiting For the Sirens Call on 180g 2LP
The massively influential band New Order formed in Manchester, England, in 1980, rising from the ashes of U.K. post-punk pioneers Joy Division (after singer Ian Curtis took his own life). Guitarist Bernard Sumner assumed vocal duties for the new unit, and with drummer Stephen Morris, bassist Peter Hook, and keyboardist Gillian Gilbert, made music history. Successfully fusing new wave, electronica, synth-pop, and club music earlier than many bands now seen as contemporaries, their unique sound was as insightful and soulful as it was perfectly suited for the dance floor.
With influences from electro and rock to dance-hall and punk, all bound together by New Order's cool romance, diamond-hard mondernity and wild, unparalleled musicality, 2005's Waiting For the Sirens Call both shakes the dance floor and rocks hard. No one else makes such pop music for clever people that hits the heart as well as the head. When up-and-coming bands cite New Order as inspiration, New Order always answers the sirens call!
