“There are intensely emotional scenes as New Order revisit their back catalogue on a grand scale, airing songs not heard for 30 years plus rapturously received tributes to the band’s fated predecessor, Joy Division” Guardian *****

“A perfect collision of old and new orders… a brilliantly theatrical mix” The i News

“Outstanding… A stunning and artful setup. A highly effective marriage of synth strings and atmospheric textures that gives the songs a twist and a fresh coat of sonic paint” Louder Than War

A musical masterstroke with visuals to match” Manchester Evening News

In July 2017, New Order returned to the stage at Manchester’s Old Granada Studios where Joy Division made their television debut on Tony Wilson’s So It Goes programme 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. 

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 Top 5 album Music Complete – this is the perfect document of those magical 5 nights. Listen to ‘Sub-culture’ live now:

The album was recorded live on 13 July 2017 and includes the full show and encore plus 3 additional tracks recorded over the residency to give listeners a full representation of the breadth of material performed.

Released on triple vinyl, double CD and to download/stream, ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. is released on 12 July.

This special series of intimate shows took over Stage 1 of Manchester’s iconic Old Granada Studios for five nights in July 2017. 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 collaborator with the band, 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.
