American dark pop music band The New Division didn’t start out in the typical “let’s gather a few friends and jam along in the garage at someone’s parents house” kind of way. The whole project was originally a college dorm room project for songwriter John Kunkel back in 2005. After moving from Uruguay (where he resided for 18 years) to Southern California, Kunkel began experimenting with synthesizers after being heavily influenced by the sounds of Joy Division, New Order and Depeche Mode. After some time the one man project gradually developed into an actual band. Currently, The New Division is John Kunkel (vocals), Brock Woolsey (guitars), Janzie (synths) and Mark Michaslki (synths).
