New Order’s Peter Hook announces book on band’s tumultuous history
New Order co-founder Peter Hook may have been fired from the band in 2007, but the famous bassist hasn’t been silent since then. Hook has published two memoirs in the meantime: 2008’s Hacienda: How Not To Run a Club was a history of the titular Manchester nightclub, while 2012’s Unknown Pleasures covered Hook’s experience in Joy Division.
Now, Hook has announced his latest memoir: Substance: Inside New Order. Clocking in at over 700 pages, the book will be a massive, thorough account of the post-punk band’s tumultuous history. According to the book’s Amazon listing, Substance will include such specific details as “every set list and tour itinerary” from New Order’s career.
Hook himself tweeted the book’s cover art along with a pre-order link. Substance: Inside New Order is out Oct. 6 from Simon & Schuster.
