New Order unveil new song ‘Plastic’ live in Chicago

The band debuted their second new song of the year at the Aragon Ballroom

New Order played a brand new song called ‘Plastic’ live in Chicago last night (July 1).

The band revealed the track during their gig at the Aragon Ballroom, reports Consequence of Sound, who quoted the band’s frontman Bernard Sumner as saying: “We have to write some new songs to keep this a viable band.” Click above to watch fan-shot footage of the song’s performance.

The band previously performed a new song during their Lollapalooza Chile set in south America back in March. That track, ‘Singularity’, which was formerly known as ‘Drop the Guitar’, was their first new song in nine years.

New Order’s last studio album ‘Waiting For The Sirens Call’ was released in 2005, when bass player Peter Hook was still a member of the group. His relationship with the other members has subsequently soured and earlier this year he branded Bernard Sumner “twatto” for touring the band’s greatest hits around the festival circuit.

New Order reunited in 2011 after going on a break in 2007. In 2013 the band released a rarities album titled ‘Lost Sirens’.
