Oh Joy! Joy Division Reissues to Hit Stores in September
While the members of New Order are busy fighting over whether they're still in fact together, their former band Joy Division couldn't be more active. (How's that for irony?)

On top of the Unknown Pleasures design New Balance trainers and the new Anton Corbijn-directed Ian Curtis biopic Control, die-hard Joy Division fans can get excited over Warner Music's announcement that it will reissue remastered versions of the entire Joy Division catalogue in the UK on September 10.

Set to coincide with the UK release of Control on October 5 (a limited North American release is scheduled for October 10), the reissues will be for all three of the band's albums - Unknown Pleasures, Closer and Still - as well as live recordings from performances in Manchester, London, High Wycombe and West Hampstead, showcasing the different phases in the band's career.
