New Order to reissue back catalog

    After their old band Joy Division spent quite a year in the spotlight (thanks to films like Control and Joy Division and deluxe reissues of Closer and Unknown Pleasures) New Order are set to make their band without Ian Curtis as hot a property.


    To do this, the band is re-releasing its ‘80s catalog (five studio albums Movement, Power, Corruption & Lies, Low-Life, Brotherhod, and Technique) in the same dual-disc format of the Joy Division reissues with a smattering of unreleased b-sides, live cuts, remixes, and extended versions.


    The reissues are slated for a September 28 U.K. release, with no word on an American release. [Gigwise]
