Indie New Order Covers Album To Benefit Tony Wilson Award

Florida independent record label, 24 Hour Service Station, is assembling a tribute album honoring the music of New Order entitled CEREMONY: A New Order Tribute. The double CD and digital album is scheduled for release in the fall of 2009. Slated participants include Jah Division, The Cloud Room, Kingsbury, The Penelopes, Allegra Gellar, The Beauvilles, Kites with Lights, Dub Gabriel and many more! Artists will be offering up a version of their favorite New Order track, as well as their take on the band's classic first single, “Ceremony” for the extra disc.

A portion of the proceeds from record sales will go to the Salford Foundation Trust’s Tony Wilson Award, established in memory of Tony Wilson, the founding father of landmark independent record label Factory Records, who died of cancer in 2007. The trust will benefit children and young people who can demonstrate a special talent or ambition in the arts or creative skills. Factory Records was the home to New Order, Joy Division, Happy Monday, The Durutti Column along with many other artists, and gave unique bands a chance they may not have received at a regular record label.
