The band give the lowdown on the follow-up to 2001's 'Get Ready'...

[url=]NEW ORDER have unveiled further details of their forthcoming studio album.

The LP, ‘Waiting For The Sirens Call’, is set to be released on March 28 via Warner Music and will be preceded by a new single ‘Krafty’ two weeks before.

Other song titles slated to feature on the album, which signals a return to the band’s dance period in the late 1980s, include ‘Jetstream’ and ‘Sugarcane’.

The LP, which was recorded in Bath, has been co-produced by veterans Stephen Street and John Leckie.

Guitarist Phil Cunningham has also joined the line-up, while keyboardist Gillian Gilbert is taking time out from the Manchester band.

Cunningham, who previously performed with [url=]New Order singer Bernard Sumner in Electronic, filled in for Gilbert during the group’s last tour in 2001/2002.

At the time the former keyboardist was forced to pull out so that she could care for her ill daughter.
