Bernard Sumner claims New Order have ‘never’ split up despite former bassist Peter Hook saying they disbanded in 2007 when he left the group.
The “Blue Monday” singer says the group have enjoyed a number of lengthy hiatuses but never officially called it a day, reported Q magazine.
“Not true. We never did split up. We’ve had long, long periods off but we never officially packed it in. And it’s not really for Hooky to split the band up on his own, is it? It’s not his decision,” Sumner said.
