Artist Bio

New Order’s critically acclaimed album, Music Complete, was released September 2015 via Mute, and includes singles “Restless,” “Tutti Frutti,” “Singularity” and “People On The High Line.” New Order spent much of 2016 playing worldwide sold out shows at prestigious venues including Royal Albert Hall and Sydney Opera House as well as headlining festivals including Glastonbury, culminating in a highly successful South American tour in December. The band also joined forces with Moorhouse’s Brewery of Burnley to launch “Stray Dog” Beer that has sold over 100,000 pints in the UK alone, with plans for international distribution in 2017.

New Order is: Bernard Sumner, Gillian Gilbert, Stephen Morris, Tom Chapman and Phil Cunningham.

United Crushers (out March 4, 2016) is POLIÇA’s third full-length release and most ambitious album to date. The band, which includes Channy Leaneagh, dual drummers, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu and Chris Beirden on bass with producer Ryan Olson at the helm, collectively wrote the album in Minneapolis in the winter of 2015 during their first true break from two straight years of touring. They recorded it at the renowned Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, TX, nestled just a few short miles from the United States/Mexico boarder. The new album builds on POLIÇA’s signature synthesizer and percussion-heavy sounds with more complex arrangements and a bigger, crisper hi-fi punch due to the new approach they took to writing and recording: together, all in the samroom. There's a tighter groove to these songs and a more vulnerable quality to them, especially in Leaneagh's singing. Her impressive vocal range is consistently on display throughout, beautifully raw and less electronically effected than on previous recordings.

Don’t miss your chance to see New Order with special guest Poliça at the Santa Barbara Bowl on April 18.
