Peter Hook to play Joy Division's 'Unknown Pleasures' on US tour

Gigs begin in Washington, DC in December

Peter Hook spoke out this week (October 3) about the last days of his former band New Order, claiming that a lack of communication had left the band "an empty shell". Speaking as part of BBC Radio 2's New Order week, the bass player spoke about how relations between himself and frontman Bernard Sumner had broken down.
Peter Hook has announced he is set to take Joy Division's classic album 'Unknown Pleasures' on a tour of the US.

Joined by his band The Light, the bassist will embark on a nine-date trek, beginning in Washington, DC on December 1.
