The Guardian speaks with The 1975 about their upcoming album.
That’s the thing with Healy. He says absolutely anything, sometimes contradicting himself from sentence to sentence. He makes up words – he keeps saying “immersiated” when he means immersed – and he’s grandly, fabulously pretentious. He must be a horror to handle – afterwards, his manager wants to know exactly what has been said about his love life, an inquiry he waves away breezily; his publicist wonders if she should stop him talking for so long – but, goodness, he’s smashing company for a writer. He’s a pop star, in all his sincere, ridiculous, insecure glory.

Watch the brand new (and brilliant) video for The 1975's single "Love Me" in the replies.
"With Love Me we wanted to capture the neon-hued enthralling acquisition of success and excess, the screaming momentum, the sexy daze. Everything is REDICULOUS! But, is it? All I know is the only art worth any investment is the art that makes you feel personally addressed. A simple truth, or set of truths, that galvanises an awareness and passion within the individual and in doing so immerses them into a sense of community founded upon that same personal connection or experience. Too many artists care what others think - we are for the 'community' - a non linear observation on everything that has...

Last month, we introduced you to new Roadrunner Records signees More to Monroe. While the video we premiered is indicative of the post-hardcore stylings you'll find on their upcoming EP, Appalachia (out September 15th), the band also has a softer side. Head to the replies to watch the quartet perform a stripped-down cover of The 1975's "Sex."

And not only do they all share the same label, but if you're a fan of the haunting EP style tracks of The 1975 or my recent recommendation of Marika Hackman's debut album...you should check this out in the replies. Not only that, but it was produced by Matty Healy and George Daniels of The 1975.

Following our release of the Most Anticipated Albums for 2015, Matty of The 1975 just posted this very simple and intriguing tweet. What could it mean? Just a reference to the band name origin and the backstory we all know by now? Or something more like a release date of a new album to coincide with this? Either way, it's a perfect day to get even more wrapped up in the anticipation for this year's releases.
Kyle Huntington on 01/19/15 - 08:55 AM
Marika Hackman will release her fantastic debut album, We Slept At last, on February 16th via Dirty Hit (The 1975). The album is full of brooding folk and orchestral arrangements, think Laura Marling crossed with Chelsea Wolfe and Nico. Check out the official video for "Drown" in the replies, the new single "Animal Fear" and find out more in the official thread.

Songkick took at look at the hardest working bands of 2014 ... to no one's surprise, The 1975 take top spot. You can check out a PDF will a bunch of the data and stats here.
The Manchester quartet aren’t just the hardest working band of 2014. Their phenomenal efforts over the last 365 days have shot them to the top of the Songkick leaderboard, having played more shows and covered more ground within a calendar year than any other artist since 2010 (when we started crunching numbers). The 249724km travelled by the band, venue to venue, would take them two-thirds of the way to the moon. Which is little surprise, given they averaged a gig every 1.8 days. Unbelievable!
Jason Tate on 12/17/14 - 12:43 PM
The 1975 have canceled tonight's show in Indianapolis due to an illness in the band. Some fans are talking in the forums that last night at the band's show they looked very tired and Matty even commented about wanting to go home.
