Peter Hook and the Light will be returning to North America for an extensive tour this fall. Continuing his series of retrospective performances, Hook and crew will be performing Joy Division’s and New Order’s respective Substance albums. The compilation albums collected all of each band’s singles up until that point.

“Widely considered New Order’s strongest album, ‘their most popular, well known, highly rated and arguably the most influential’ (Sputnik Music), Factory Records’ 200th release featured the bands seminal 12″ mixes of their singles as well as versions of ‘Confusion’ and Temptation re-recorded for the LP,” a press release explains. “Released the following year in July 1988, Joy Division’s Substance features all the singles which did not appear on the albums such as ‘Transmission’, ‘Komakino’, ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ and ‘Atmosphere’, as well as their b-sides, tracks from their EP ‘An Ideal For Living’ and the Factory Records sampler.”

The bass legend will kick things off with two dates at New York City’s Webster Hall and one at L.A.’s Wiltern in September. The trek picks back up in October and will circle its way across U.S. with a set of dates in Canada as well.
