New Order are a NewWaveMusic[=/=]PostPunk[=/=]ElectronicMusic[=/=]AlternativeRock band from Manchester, England. They were one of the more enduring and influential bands of the 1980s, and until its bankruptcy, one of the flagship bands for Tony Wilson's Creator/FactoryRecords label. They were among the first bands to be branded with the genre of "AlternativeRock" and were wildly influential on later bands of the genre's pre-Music/{{Nirvana}} days.

Wishing to continue their music careers, but honor Curtis' memory by avoiding TheBandMinusTheFace, guitarist/keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen Morris reorganized as a new band, with Sumner taking over lead vocals, Morris's girlfriend (and later wife) Gillian Gilbert joining on guitar and keyboards, and everybody in the band taking up keyboard, sequencing and programming duties. The band debuted anonymously on July 29, 1980, renaming themselves "New Order" the following year. After a slow start, including debut single "Ceremony"/"In A Lonely Place" (two leftover Joy Division songs that they had rehearsed but never formally recorded prior to Curtis's suicide) and their first album ''Movement'' sounding like they were trying to be Joy Division and failing, the band shifted their music towards the dance/electronica sound which would become their trademark.

The band debuted anonymously on July 29, 1980, renaming themselves "New Order" the following year. After a slow start, including with their first album ''Music/{{Movement}}'' being criticized for a perceived lack of artistic progress post-Joy Division (particularly after their debut single "Ceremony"/"In A a Lonely Place" (two Place", which consisted of two leftover Joy Division songs that they had rehearsed but never formally recorded prior to Curtis's suicide) and their first album ''Movement'' sounding like they were trying to be Joy Division and failing, suicide), the band shifted their music towards the dance/electronica sound which would become their trademark.



For the 1990 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup World Cup]], they recorded "World In Motion", that year's theme song for the English national football (soccer) team. To date it is their only UK #1.

Following intense CreativeDifferences between Sumner and Hook as well as burnout from a lengthy United States tour, New Order went on hiatus in 1994, two years after the release of their record ''Republic'' (which spun off their last big hit, "Regret" - which wound up being their biggest hit Stateside). In the meantime, the band members focused on side projects (Sumner in Electronic with Music/JohnnyMarr of Music/TheSmiths, Hook in Revenge and later Monaco, and Morris and Gilbert as The Other Two). They reunited in 1998 and released two more albums, plus some soundtrack work and multiple best-of compilations. In 2005, Gilbert retired to rear her and Morris' children (more specifically their daughter, who had fallen ill) and was replaced by Phil Cunningham. In 2007, Peter Hook left the band, which, in late 2008 led New Order to take another lengthy hiatus (whether or not it was a breakup is debated even between Hook and his bandmates).

#1. Following Factory's bankruptcy two years later, the band signed onto London Records, who had previously attempted to buy out Factory in the lead-up to the bankruptcy, only to find out that none of the label's artists were actually signed onto them (meaning the ''musicians'', not the label, were the legal owners of their music).
