Description:

Joy Division is a dominant force that opened a new chapter in the history of British rock music after punk and determined the next direction of UK rock music from Manchester. To coincide with the release of the 40th anniversary vinyl of their last album "CLOSER", a masterpiece that has etched its name in music history, Joy Division is finally reissuing the singles of their songs released between 1979 and 1980 that were not included on the album as 12-inch singles! This is "LOVE WILL TEAR US APART", released in 1980, which is regarded as one of the best songs in rock history. Joy Division has had a huge influence on the UK music scene since then with their unique world view created by their well-honed musicality and original artwork by Peter Saville. Their simple but sharp guitar riffs and melodies that tug at the heartstrings, lyrics that seem to look inside themselves instead of loudly criticizing society and adults, and destructive performances at live shows that attracted a great deal of attention at the time, their style had a great influence on rock bands not only in the UK but around the world for generations to come. On May 18, 1980, Ian Curtis tragically passed away, leaving the band with only two albums and numerous singles, and the remaining members formed a new band, New Order, with Bernard on vocals.It can be said that Joy Division and New Order laid the foundation for the Mudchester movement that swept through Manchester in the late 80's and 90's. It can be said that Joy Division and New Order laid the foundation for the Madchester movement that swept through Manchester in the late 80s and 90s. Joy Division opened a new chapter in the history of British rock music after punk, and determined the next direction of UK rock music from Manchester. To coincide with the 40th anniversary limited edition crystal clear vinyl release of "CLOSER," their second and final album released after the tragic death of Ian Curtis, Joy Division has released a limited edition crystal clear vinyl release of the album, which includes "Love Will Tear Us Apart," which has been hailed as one of the greatest rock songs of all time, will also be released simultaneously as 12-inch singles! The three singles, which have never been re-pressed since the demise of FACTORY Records, will finally be released in 180-gram heavy vinyl with the latest remastered sound and original artwork in 2020. LOVE WILL TEAR US APART" was released as a 7" & 12" single in June 1980, just before the release of the album "CLOSER".The song's great melody line and Ian Curtis's caustic lyrics were a big hit, and it became their first charting single, but shortly after its release, Ian Curtis tragically died.... The title of the song, which has also been called "the greatest song in rock history" by various media, is firmly etched on Ian's tombstone.
