With New Order’s first U.S. tour in seven years underway comes news the band finally will release the Lost Sirens album — a collection of outtakes from 2005′s Waiting for the Sirens’ Call delayed for nearly a year by apparent legal wrangling with Peter Hook — and that the band may tour both North and South America in 2013.
No exact date is given, but Rolling Stone reports that the seven-track Lost Sirens will be released in November. The collection, first mentioned by Hook last year in an interview with Slicing Up Eyeballs, had been set for release last December in a CD/vinyl set, but was promptly delayed. One of the outtakes, “Hellbent,” emerged last year on a new compilation.
Rolling Stone also reports there’s “potential for a tour of North and South America next year.”
“The whole year, even though we’ve done a load of gigs, has been a bit of an expedition, really, to see what we can manage,” Sumner told Rolling Stone. “But I think it’s been the best year of music for us ever. It’s so enjoyable. The audiences have been fantastic.”
