Limited 180gm ruby red colored vinyl LP pressing with an alternative white sleeve. Fortieth anniversary edition of the Manchester band’s 1979 release. Joy Division rapidly evolved from their initial punk rock influences to develop a sound and style that made them one of the pioneers of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s. Joy Division’s debut album, Unknown Pleasures, was released in 1979 on Anthony Wilson’s independent record label Factory Records, and drew critical acclaim from the British press.
