Barely a day after we received word of New Order reuniting minus bassist Peter Hook, who had a huge falling out with guitarist Bernard
Sumner some time ago, news arrives that Hook, not to be outdone, will return to
North America this fall with his band The Light to perform the two landmark Joy
Division albums CLOSER and UNKNOWN PLEASURES. The trek will kick off next week
in New York City and wrap on Oct. 1 in Mexico City, and full
itinerary is listed below – but note that depending on where you see the band,
you will get one or the other album.

 

Hook and his band (bassist Jack Bates, guitarist Nat Watson,
keyboardist Andy Poole, drummer Jack Kehoe) already enjoyed a successful run
last year performing UNKNOWN PLEASURES; go here to read a review of the
December concert in Washington
DC. They subsequently  released their debut EP 1102/2011 digitally
this spring on Hacienda Records, available exclusively at: www.fac51thehacienda.com.
The EP features a previously unreleased Joy Division song titled “Pictures In
My Mind” as well as new renditions of “Atmosphere,” “New Dawn Fades,” and “Insight.”
