However, the relentless touring had a negative effect on the band. Vocalist Ian Curtis was an epileptic, who sometimes suffered seizures during concerts, leading to their cancellation. His lack of sleep and alcohol abuse, only added to his severe depression, and he committed suicide on 18 May 1980 (supposedly after watching ''Film/{{Stroszek}}'' on TV and listening to Music/IggyPop's ''Music/TheIdiot'').

However, the relentless touring had a negative effect on the band. Vocalist Ian Curtis was an epileptic, who had epilepsy, and sometimes suffered seizures during concerts, leading to their cancellation. His seizures were getting worse as the band continued touring, but he pushed himself to the point of exhaustion, as the band needed to tour to become better-known in the fairly exclusive music scene of the 1970s: he concealed the extent of his disability until the breaking point. His lack of sleep and alcohol abuse, abuse only added to his severe depression, and he committed suicide on 18 May 1980 (supposedly after watching ''Film/{{Stroszek}}'' on TV and listening to Music/IggyPop's ''Music/TheIdiot'').

Since they had a made a pact to change their name if anyone left, the rest of the band members renamed themselves Music/NewOrder, alongside Morris' girlfriend (now wife), keyboardist and guitarist Gillian Gilbert.

The band are portrayed by actors in the movies: ''Film/TwentyFourHourPartyPeople'' and ''Film/{{Control}}.'' The former is a bio-pic of ''Factory Records'' head Tony Wilson, with ''Joy Division'' playing a major role, in the first part of the film. The latter is a bio-pic of Ian Curtis himself, directed by photographer Creator/AntonCorbijn, who took a lot of the band's pictures, during their early years.

* GadgeteerGenius: Bernard Sumner was an electronic hobbyist in the band's early days to keep himself occupied at night while suffering from insomnia. He built the band's first synthesizer.

* YourCheatingHeart: One of issues that drover Ian to suicide was his affair with Annik Honoré.
* UpdatedRerelease: In the early '90s, the cover art for ''Substance'' was reworked on the European editions. For the 2015 re-issue, a couple extra tracks were added: "As You Said" and an alternate version of "Love Will Tear Us Apart," from the single's B-side were added, collecting all of the band's non album tracks.
* WorstAid: Allegedly a contributing factor in Curtis' demise. Sumner has stated that he thinks the inadequate treatment given to Curtis for his epilepsy was a significant factor in his suicide. Plus the scenes of Ian being dragged back stage, while having a fit in ''24 Hour Party People'' aren't far from the truth.

** ''Control'' endorses this view as well, showing both Curtis being given ''phenobarbital'' for his epilepsy, which even by the 1970's was considered a less than ideal treatment option.
