British new wave group New Order will join Holy Ghost! at The Mann Center on July 26th. Though the band went through a pair of long-winded break-ups, original New Order members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and returned-keyboardist Gillian Gilbert brought in Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman in 2011 for a handful of international dates, which were followed up by the 2013 release of Lost Sirens. The new album featured tracks that were not included on 2005’s Waiting for the Siren’s Call. Known for their synthy dance jams, the Manchester-bred group set the record for the all-time best-selling 12″ release with their 1983 single “Blue Monday.”
The legendary dance group will be joined by their American 21st century contemporaries in Holy Ghost. The Brooklyn duo, who are signed to James Murphy’s DFA Records, released their debut album in 2011 and their hooky, 80s keyboard / modern day hip hop influenced dance tracks caught on quickly. The band will be working out some new music during this summer tour as they prepare their sophomore album.
Tickets for the July 26th show go on sale this Friday, April 19th. More information will be available here. Below, watch New Order perform “Bizarre Love Triangle” and check out Holy Ghost’s video for “I Will Come Back,” in which they “cover” New Order’s video for “Confusion.”
