The New Division is an electronic indie band formed in 2008 in Riverside, California. Founding members John Glenn Kunkel and Michael Janz started experimenting with electronic music and live performances locally, later adding Brock Woolsey and Mark Michalski.

Following the footsteps of acts such as New Order and Depeche Mode their sound blends 1980s synth-pop with contemporary electronic dance music. Additional influences include Royksopp, Deadmau5, Cut Copy, and Massive Attack.

In August of 2009 The New Division released their self-titled EP receiving local critical acclaim. While supporting the release with several shows in Southern California, the band landed an opening spot for Elefant at the Glass House in Pomona. The following year The New Division went on to release their first single, “Art Kraft” as a precursor to their second EP, “The Rookie.” Due out this fall the “The Rookie” will include six tracks displaying the group’s mastering of cutting-edge electronic music.
