Peter Hook will release four new live albums this spring on CD, digital and vinyl, each capturing a performance of a different full album — Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer, and New Order’s Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies — recorded over the past few years.
The albums Unknown Pleasures Tour 2012: Live in Leeds, Closer Live Tour 2011: Live in Manchester, Movement Tour 2013: Live in Dublin and Power, Corruption & Lies Tour 2013: Live in Dublin will first be released as limited-edition colored-vinyl pressings on Record Store Day in the U.K., on April 22. A worldwide CD and digital release will follow on May 5.
Full tracklists have not yet been released, but each live album features a full performance of the titular record by Peter Hook & The Light, plus additional era-appropriate tracks fleshing out the sets.
Hook and his bandmates return to the U.S. for a trio of dates next month.
Check out those dates, and a video trailer for the live albums, below.
Peter Hook & The Light tour dates:
April 28: UC Theater, Berkeley, CA (Substance set)
