New Order might be touring without him, but that hasn’t stopped former NE/Joy Division bassist Peter Hook from getting on with his life and getting out on the road. Peter Hook & the Light is the band, and he performs material by both of those iconic and vital bands. Hook’s groups have always been ahead of the game, so a virtual show won’t phase him. The lawsuits are behind him, and Peter Hook has seen the Light.

As part of the recent Yamaha Guitars ‘Open House Online’ event, Peter Hook & The Light performed a socially distanced live version of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’. Peter Hook is playing his brand new upcoming signature Yamaha BB bass in this video.

Peter Hook will release four new live albums this spring on CD, digital and vinyl, each capturing a performance of a different full album  Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” and “Closer”, and New Order’s “Movement” and “Power, Corruption & Lies” — recorded over the past few years.
