NME are reporting the the book will be released on the 1st October through Simon and Schuster, titled ‘Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division’.
Hook spoke to Consequence of Sound last year about his reasoning behind the memoir, saying: “I’m sick of everyone reading books about Joy Division by people who weren’t there and weren’t even close to us at all. There were a lot of things that were wrong, in those books, as well as annoying.”
“In a funny way– I’m hoping that the Joy Division book will maybe give me an understanding of why Ian [Curtis]…killed himself. It’s very unsettling actually, because it was a very intense amount of time.”
This will not be Hook’s first foray into publishing, after he penned ‘The Hacienda: How Not To Run A Club’, which was released back in 2009.
