New Order announce a full and final settlement with former bassist Peter Hook
New Order announce that today, a full and final settlement has been reached in the long running disputes with their former bassist Peter Hook.

The disputes were based upon Hook's use of various New Order and Joy Division assets on merchandising and in the promotion of shows by his new band, and the amount of money he receives from the use of the name New Order by his former colleagues since 2011.

The Joy Division and New Order names mean a great deal to so many of the fans, and the band felt it important to protect the legacy.

With these issues now dealt with, Bernard, Stephen and Gillian can continue to do what they do best, make music and perform live.

I own a bunch of New Order records and love them.

I didn't know how much Peter Hook meant to the band until watching some videos recently.

The songs (for the most part) are the bass player.

You have programmed drums, minimal guitar, and what most would think was the guitar (bass played higher up the neck).

I have an admiration for the man that took 30 years to realize.

New Order can get 100 new bass players. They will never have another Peter Hook.
