Joy Division

Joy Division were an English band formed in 1976 and, arguably, one of the greatest bands to come out of Manchester. Their career was however tragically cut short when their vocalist, Ian Curtis, took his own life on 18 May 1980. He had suffered from depression and had lived with severe epilepsy for some time. His death came just before the release of Joy Division’s classic single Love Will Tear Us Apart which would go on to top the singles chart in New Zealand.
