Blue Friday for New Order
The electro-wizards part ways after 25 years together
New Order have split up says their bassist Peter Hook.
The Manchester group who helped invent dance music formed from Joy Division in the early 80s after Ian Curtiss death.
Hook told radio station XFM: Well yeah, me and Bernard (Sumner) aren't working together.
He then added on his Myspace page: "I'm relieved. [I] really hated carrying on as normal with an awful secret."
New Order had massive hits with Blue Monday, Regret World In Motion and True Faith. Their last album Waiting For The Sirens Call in 2005 was well received.
Hook is now working with Perry Farrell on a band called Satellite Party. Singer Bernard Sumner has previously worked with 808 State and The Chemical Brothers.
