VENN covers “Ceremony” by NEW ORDER / JOY DIVISION

1 min read

One of our favorite dreamy rockers from Washington D.C., VENN, are back with a new music video! The band has just unleashed their version of “Ceremony”, a 1981 track from NEW ORDER! The new edit has its own kind of subtlety and unique mood of that era, but it upgrades its sound, makes it thicker and it’s a really good reinterpretation. The track serves as a quality opener for “Rave On, A Madchester Celebration” the latest compilation from Brazilian label The Blog That Celebrates Itself Records. Scroll down to check out the rest of the tracks, including loads of covers of THE CHARLATANS, PRIMAL SCREAM, NEW ORDER, and more icons of the Madchester scene.

“Ceremony” by JOY DIVISION was originally released as NEW ORDER’s debut single in 1981.


This is why events unnerve me
They find it all a different story
Notice whom for wheels are turning
Turn again and turn towards this time
All she asks is the strength to hold me
Then again the same old story
World will travel oh so quickly
Travel first and lean towards this time

Oh, I’ll break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows it’s got to be this time
Watching her, these things she said
The times she cried
Too frail to wake this time

Oh I’ll break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows it’s got to be this time
Avenues all lined with trees
Picture me and then you start watching
Watching forever
