''Brotherhood'' is the fourth studio album by the English rock band New Order, released in 1986. The album contains a mixture of post-punk and electronic styles, roughly divided between the two sides. New Order would not utilize the guitar as a main instrument again until 2001's ''Get Ready''.

''Brotherhood'' includes the band's breakout single in the USA, "Bizarre Love Triangle". It is the only track from the album released as a single and as a video. As such, it was the staple of many 1980s soundtracks, including ''Married to the Mob''.

The album sleeve was created by Peter Saville and is a photograph of a sheet of titanium-zinc alloy.

In 2008 the album was re-released in a Collector's Edition with a bonus disc.

In a 1987 interview with ''Option'', Stephen Morris commented that the "mad ending" to "Every Little Counts" is similar to the ending of the The Beatles' "A Day in the Life". Morris said: "What we should have done is make the tape version sound like the tape getting chewed up. The CD could have the sticking sound." - Wikipedia
