It seems that finally the speculation has come to an end, and New Order are no more.

In an interview given to BBC 6Music, Peter hook confirmed the split.

"It has been very sad actually, and it has been very difficult to live with, but that is life, isn't it?" he said. "But you pick yourself up, you dust yourself off, and you start all over again."

When pused as the a reason for the end of the band, he gave the simple reply of, "It's personal".
