For the first time, Joy Division have an official website. www.joydivisionofficial.com was launched this week and features a news section, a photo gallery, an extensive biography as well as a "listen" section where the band's music can be streamed, set to a montage of photographs by Charlie Meecham. The website says: "We hope to add more specially-commissioned videos, inspired by the band, in the future", so we can expect more content to be added.
The website goes on to say: "To celebrate the 35th anniversary of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' this summer, we are pleased to announce the re-issue of four iconic Joy Division releases on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl: UNKNOWN PLEASURES and CLOSER will be available on June 29th, followed by STILL and an expanded version of SUBSTANCE - both available as double-LP sets – on July 24th."
The expanded version of 'Substance' will mark the first time the compilation has been available on vinyl. It will include bonus track 'As You Said' plus the Pennine version of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'.
