New Order split up – this time for good?

Peter Hook says the band definitely are no more

New Order split up – this time for good?
New Order have split up, according to bassist Peter Hook.

As previously reported the band denied they were splitting earlier this year despite drummer Stephen Morris being quoted as saying: “We should stop for a while.”

Speaking about his involvement in Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party, Peter Hook told Xfm that the band have broken up.

He said: “I spoke to Perry, and he asked me to play bass, as he’d heard about New Order splitting up. Well yeah, me and Bernard (Sumner) aren’t working together.”

When asked if the split was permanent, he added: “Bernard went off for a break with Electronic, but that was different. But it’s like the boy who cried wolf this time.”
