Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart


Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]


"We're changing our ways / Taking different roads".

The 1980 swan-song of one of Manchester’s most influential bands was released after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. 

Constant touring was exacerbating his epilepsy, while his marriage was running into trouble. 

By the time Love With Tear Us Apart made it to number 13 in the UK charts during the June of 1980, Curtis had been dead a month. 

This devastatingly beautiful song literally became his epitaph.
