Peter Hook Still Planning To Tour On Joy Division Albums, Announces New EP

    One of the better things about Joy Division was that the surviving members seemed unwilling to tarnish their legacy by trotting out old Joy Division songs, or joining up with a new singer. No longer! Peter Hook is launching his tour of old Joy Division albums tomorrow, and he’s apparently going to be releasing an EP of old Joy Division songs, along with a new, unfinished Joy Division track that he sings and finished. The EP is out on May 9, and is called 1102/2011. Just pack it in, Hook. Please? Here are the tour dates:
