New Order to release 'Live At Bestival' charity album
New Order have announced the release of a new live album.
Live At Bestival 2012, recorded at Rob and Josie da Bank's annual bash last year, will be released on CD and download on July 8. All profits will go to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust.
Drummer Stephen Morris said: "We played at so many festivals in 2012, and our highlights were, without doubt, the last two in the UK, Portmeirion and Bestival. Saturday night was fancy dress night, and Gillian enjoyed dressing up in her peacock head-dress.
"This charity release is a special way to mark the Bestival experience, and we're thrilled to be working with Rob and Josie's team to raise money for such a worthy cause on the island. It's great to give something back, and also to give such a brilliant crowd something to remember the show by. And if you weren’t there, buy the CD and enjoy the experience that way!"
Live At Bestival 2012 is New Order's third live album following 1992's BBC Radio 1 Live In Concert and 2011's Live At The London Troxy. The band is gearing up to curate a day of live music from Manchester's Jodrell Bank on July 7 - with Johnny Marr, The Whip, ex Bad Lieutenant man Jake Evans and Hot Vestry all set to join them.

'Here To Stay'
