The New Division

The New Division – Kids

November 29, 2012

The New Division are influenced (by their own admission) by Depeche Mode, New Order and Joy Division. Hence the name, though personally I’d have plugged for Order Joy Mode. Oh well.

They are based in LA, Yankland and were founded in 2005. That’s, like, super old in the ‘hip new band’ stakes, they barely classify but presently everyone (by everyone I mean a few excited spotty, pre-adult Pitchfork wannabees) is getting all Tomorrow’s World about them.

I could pretend that we at SGTMT HQ have been aware of them since their conception, actually, we will pretend that…

Here at SGTMT we’ve been following The New Division since November 2005 when they first started making the music. We know everything about them. We’ve got the t-shirt, we’re in the fan club, scratch that we RUN the fan club. Tom even has The New Division tattooed onto his butt cheeks (don’t read too much into that, actually never read that. If you find yourself reading Tom’s butt cheeks something has gone seriously wrong).

Get all Pitchfork about Kids:

They’re previously famous for this, Starfield:

Like The New Division? They have an old album in the shops. Get Shadows on CD from Amazon.

    Look, I don’t want you to think that I spend my whole life following your postings. I do have a life, of sorts. I shop, I do housework, I am part-time employed in a real job that affects people’s lives, I could tell you about it if you need putting to sleep ….. I have adult children (if you know what I mean) that are facing the challenges of the modern world, like many others …. but

    “something has gone seriously wrong”

    I fell on the floor shrieking with laughter and hyperventilating.

    And sorry, I haven’t even got as far as listening to the music. I promise I will do it in a moment.
