Image Peter Hook - the innovating basist and founder of both Joy Division and New Order - has announced a special run of dates with his touring band, The Light. Hook is planning to perform New Order's 1981 album, Movement and 1983's Power, Corruption & Lies in their entirety. The two albums show how New Order evolved from Joy Division's dark post-punk into the more well-known dance/punk New Order that remains best known today. Notably though, the albums did not contain their biggest singles from that time - "Everything's Gone Green", "Temptation" and "Blue Monday."

Along with club shows, the band will be appearing at the packed lineup of Riot Fest 2013. We spoke to Mr.Hook back in February.
