Mark Lanegan and Cold Cave teamed up this month to cover Joy Division‘s ‘Isolation’ as part of an online tribute show to  of Ian Curtis‘ death.

Moving Through The Silence was broadcast online on May 18 and saw the likes of Joy Division’s Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris taking part to help celebrate the life and legacy of Curtis, who died on May 18, 1980 at the age of 23.

Lanegan’s effort saw him joining forces with Cold Cave, whose own music has previously been likened to the dark-wave sound pioneered by Joy Division.

This comes after Joy Division’s Peter Hook also honoured the anniversary of Curtis’ death earlier this month by streaming a gig in which he played every Joy Division sing with his band The Light.
