Joy Division documentary gets release date:
The eagerly awaited new documentary about Joy Division is to be released in the UK on May 2, 2008.

"Joy Division" was directed by Grant Gee, previously responsible for the acclaimed Radiohead "OK Computer" tour documentary "Meeting People Is Easy".

The new documentary follows hot on the heels of Anton Corbijn 's movie "Control", which was released in 2007, and concentrated its story on the band's tragic frontman Ian Curtis, who committed suicide in 1980.

The new documentary examines the band's story through never-before-seen live performance footage, personal photos, period films and newly discovered audiotapes.

There are also interviews with Tony Wilson, the boss of the band's label Factory Records, who died last year. The rest of the band also contribute, as does Annik Honore, the Belgian journalist who Curtis was having an affair with.

Joy Division bass player Peter Hook has already praised the documentary, calling it "the perfect answer" to "Control".
