Having just warpped his American tour performing New Order’s third and fourth albums — 1985′s Low-Life and 1986′s Brotherhood — Peter Hook has announced he’ll return next spring for a tour of the southern U.S. during which he’ll play Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer in addition to an opening set of New Order favorites.
