NEW ORDER ANNOUNCE LIVE ALBUM RECORDED AT MANCHESTER INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL
Division made their television debut on Tony Wilson’s So It Goes program in 1978. For the celebrated show ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.., New Order deconstructed, rethought and rebuilt a wealth of material from throughout their career: familiar and obscure, old and new.
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. will be released July 12 on triple vinyl, double CD and digital formats. Pre-order the album and listen to “Sub-culture” live from the 2017 Manchester International Festival HERE.
The triple vinyl edition will be housed in a hardback slip case with spot gloss varnish and will feature transparent red, green and blue LPs as well as a 24-page deluxe booklet. The double CD edition will come packaged in a triple gatefold sleeve and a deluxe booklet.
The new live album was recorded live on July 13, 2017 and includes the full show as well as three additional tracks recorded over the residency to give listeners a full representation of the breadth of material performed. Featuring tracks such as “Disorder” – from Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and not played live for 30 years – up to 2015’s “Plastic” from New Order’s critically acclaimed Music Complete, this is the perfect document of those magical five nights.
Created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick – who has previously presented solo exhibitions at venues such as Tate Britain and MoMA in New York – and orchestrated by composer-arranger Joe Duddell, a fellow son of Manchester and a frequent New Order collaborator, the live show was performed by the band with a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music.
This summer New Order will be performing at festivals throughout Europe and have just announced a headline tour for October playing Prague, Munich, Berlin, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.
