In 2013, Erny Green (vocals) and Gerald Roerdinkveldboom (drums) are re-united in Joy Division Undercover. They are now accompanied by Dutch legend Henk Koorn (guitars), Natasha van Waardenburg (Bass) and Thijs Heij (keys). The songs are brought with great authenticity-- Close your eyes and experience the intensity of a Joy Division concert.

The music of Joy Division has had an enormous influence on many bands such as Arcade Fire, The Editors, Interpol, The National, Sixteen Horsepower, Palace Brothers and many more. They presented the ultimate sound of darkness.

In May & June 2013 they did 8 shows in The Netherlands as a one-off project. Because of the success of those shows, the band decided to pick up their instruments again.
