Peter Hook is to hit the road for a tour in October, on which he will be signing copies of memoirs which detail his time in Joy Division this October.

The former New Order bassist's signing jaunt of 'Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division' takes in dates in Manchester, London, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin. The dates in London, Liverpool, Dublin and Edinburgh will also feature Q&A sessions.

He will also appear at a string of literary festivals in October to support the publication which will recount the band’s journey from their formation and early days to frontman Ian Curtis' tragic suicide. It is released on October 1. For more information head to Hooky’s official website Peterhook.co.uk.

Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' was recently named as NME's greatest track of the last 60 years. Their debut album ‘Unknown Pleasures’ was released in 1979, but Curtis committed suicide two months before the release of the follow-up, 1980's 'Closer'. The remaining members of the band went on to form New Order, although Hook was not part of the band’s reunion shows which took place last year.

Hook will appear at:

HMV Manchester (October 1)
Foyles Charing Cross (2)
Bristol Fopp (3)
WH Smiths Birmingham (4)
Waterstones Liverpool (4)
Ilkley Literature Festival (5)
Morley Literature Festival (6)
Easons Dublin (8)
Waterstones Glasgow (9)
Waterstones Edinburgh (9)
Sheffield Off The Shelf Literature Festival (16)
Chester Literary Festival (24)
