New Order members form new band – without Peter Hook
Former New Order members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Phil Cunningham have formed a new band without ex-bassist Peter Hook.

The collective, Bad Lieutenant, features Blur's Alex James on bass duties, Sumner told BBC Newsbeat that they have already completed recording an album, set for release in October.

"I'm very proud of it, it's a very good album," Sumner said. "It's pretty guitary too because we've got three guitarists in the band."

New Order split last summer, with Hook falling out with his former bandmates.

"We split into two factions, there's me Steve and Phil," Sumner added. "The other is Peter Hook. Basically he left the band, that's all I want to say about it."

Last October Hook discussed the last days of New Order, calling the band an "empty shell".
