New Order plan EP release before end of 2013
Story by Jack Foley
NEW Order intend to release a new EP before the end of the year (2013).
According to the band’s keyboard player Gillian Gilbert, the five-piece have been writing new material and will record the tracks in September “once the kids have all gone back to school”.
Gilbert said: “We’re waiting on Bernard’s lyrics… We don’t want to be like the old New Order and keep everyone waiting for years, we want to be the new New Order. We’ve been writing in short bursts, so we’ll just work on four songs at a time instead of waiting another two years to finish an album.”
Gilbert said that the band had opted to release the EP rather than wait for a new LP full of material so that fans wouldn’t have to wait too long. He also felt that it would help speed up the writing process.
New Order will shortly headline Transmission 005 at Jodrell Bank on July 7.
