Bernard Sumner Autobiography Out This Fall
Later this year New Order frontman Bernard Sumner will release his autobiography Chapter And Verse (New Order, Joy Division And Me). As you you can gather from that title, the memoir will cover his long career in Joy Division and its abrupt, tragic end, which then led to the formation and triumphant rise of New Order, as well as a look at his childhood. You’ll be able to pick it up 9/25 via Transworld according to NME. In other news, New Order (sans Peter Hook these days) debuted some new songs live this year including “Singularity” and last week’s “Plastic,” so a new album doesn’t seem out of the question.
