Consequence of Sound published a new interview with New Order's Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris today.  Props to COS and interviewer Michael Roffman - the subject of Peter Hook was never broached (or if it did, it wasn't included in the feature).  Instead the interview touched on New Order's recent tour, setlist, writing new songs, the Olympics, and Manchester.

Sumner revealed Chicago reminds him of home, and made the following comments on the "industrial grime" of Manchester:

"When we were in Joy Division and making those records, everything was industrial grime and smashed windows and disused factories, red brick buildings...We used to light a fire of garbage just to keep us warm in the winter, it was that cold. And, it was kind of all this Victorian era decay and industrial decay and grime...It was good for our music because your environment does shape your music to a certain extent. Manchester gave us Joy Division and L.A. gave us the Beach Boys, for example."

Sumner also confirmed the band will likely go back to a more electronic sound for the next New Order record, though they're all about just writing good songs whether they're guitar based or electronic:

"...what I’ve come to realize, really, is just write a good song. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. You can’t, you know? Levi’s never managed this; reinventing jeans did they? They came up with a great idea straight away."
