This has been on the burners for some time now, but with potential renewed interest in the group, the timing seems off. They released an album Waiting For the Siren's Call and were somewhat involved in the making of Control, the Ian Curtis/Joy Division biopic that was hit at Cannes.
So why now?
Bands break up. It happens all the time. The reasons can be complicated or simple. New Order bassist Peter Hook might have the simplest and most complicated reason ever: "It's personal."
For now, have a look at this trailer for Control. It might be a blue monday, but we can always remember the good times.
