New Order are an English rock band formed in 1980 in Manchester, currently consisting of founding members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert, alongside newer members Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman. The band was formed in 1980 by Sumner (vocals, guitars, keyboards, synthesizers), former member Peter Hook (bass, vocals) and Morris (drums, electronic drums, keyboards, synthesizers) with the addition of Gilbert (keyboards, synthesizers, guitars). By combining post-punk with influences from electronic dance music, New Order became one of the most critically acclaimed and influential bands of the 1980s. Their 1983 hit Blue Monday became the best selling 12 inch single of all time. New Order were the flagship band for the Manchester based independent record label Factory Records. Their unlabelled album sleeves and “non-image” reflected the label’s aesthetic of doing whatever the relevant parties wanted to do, including an aversion to including singles as album tracks. Because of the band’s dance rock genre it has a complex discography, with many well known songs not featured on studio albums or released in a variety of mixes. The group disbanded in 1993 to work on individual projects but reunited in 1998. In September 2015, the band released their tenth studio album Music Complete.
