Now Reissued And Pressed On 180 Gram Heavy Weight 12" Vinyl.
'Substance' was a compilation of singles from post-punk band Joy Division, originally released on Factory Records in 1988. The album is the companion to a similar singles compilation by their subsequent band New Order, also entitled 'Substance.'
At the time it peaked at #7 in the UK album chart and #146 on the Billboard 200, the band's only chart appearance in the United States.
'Substance' compiles the four singles released by the band that did not appear on albums - "Transmission," "Komakino," "Love Will Tear Us Apart," and "Atmosphere" - as well as their B-sides. It also collects tracks released on extended play singles, the band's first release An Ideal for Living, and two samplers issued by Factory Records, A Factory Sample and Earcom 2: Contradiction. The single "Atmosphere" had been originally issued in France as "Licht und Blindheit" with "Dead Souls" on the B-side.
The compilations 'Still' and 'Substance' fill in the missing pieces of Joy Division's history with non-album singles ("Transmission" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart"), unreleased studio tracks ("Something Must Break" and "Ice Age"), and choice live recordings ("Disorder" and the only performance of "Ceremony").
